I am a Junior Law and Society major and History minor at UCSB. I began learning about the holocaust from a very early age, as a result of growing up in a Jewish household. I first read Anne Frank’s diary in the 5th grade and have been fascinated by it ever since. Each time I read it, I feel I gain a greater understanding of the holocaust and what it was really like to experience the horrors that were endured. I chose this topic because I had not read the book in a couple of years and I felt that I would learn even more now because I have matured a lot since the last time I read it.
I am a Communication major and a History minor at UCSB. Even as a child, I was interested in history and the Holocaust. I remember reading “Number the Stars” at a very young age, and reading Anne Frank’s diary when I was in middle school. I became very interested in her story because I felt I could relate to her and her feelings. I have always wanted to visit the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, but haven’t had the opportunity to do so yet. I wanted to study this topic because I wanted to learn more about Anne now that I know more details of the Holocaust.
