Why Anne is a Hero

Anne Frank is a hero because she tells the world how life was like in World War II. When you read Anne's diary it feels like you are right there experiencing everything that she was. If she didn't write in her diary the world today wouldn't know how life was like for Jews in World War II.

Why is my topic important

It is important for people to know about Anne Frank because she is an important writer in History and she lived during World War II and everyday she would write everything down that was going on around her. But if people don't know about her then they don't know how bad it was for Jews during World War II. And if she didn't write in her journal nobody would care about what happened to the Jews and what happened during World War II.
