The Diary of Anne Frank Summary
By Jessica ,
12, Ashland, Montana, USA
In April and May 1940, Germany and the Nazis invaded the Netherlands. In the summer of 1941, Goering authorized Heydrich to find a final solution to the Jewish question. Heydrich, at the Wannsee Conference, mobilized Nazi bureaucratic support for Final Solution. Then in March 1942, Death camps became fully operational. Before this, the Frank family lived a normal life, Anne went to school, and she could go to movies. But little did they know that all of that was about to change. Their lives would never be the same again. Then on June 12th, 1942, Anne received a diary for her birthday. On July 5th, 1942, Margot Frank, Anne's older sister, got a phone call to report to a death camp and the next day they immediately went into hiding. The Nazis were already in the Netherlands, where they had planned to go, which would make the travel even more dangerous for the Frank family. When they got to the secret annex, they lived there for a few months. When Hanukah came they were all singing and they got caught. Then on August 4th, 1944 everybody that lived in the annex was caught and eventually taken to a death camp. Then on January 6th, 1945, Anne's mother was killed at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Then in February 1945, Anne Frank and her sister Margot Frank were killed within days of each other. On August 19th, 1980, almost 35 years later, Otto Frank, Annes father, died.
The story was about Anne Frank and her family during the holocaust and what they had to go through to try to stay safe. They were assigned to go to a death camp and they didn't want to loose each other so the next day they went into hiding. They went to stay with a woman named Miep. She was German and if they caught all of the jews that were staying with her she would be in trouble. Because Hitler was German and all of the German nazis wanted to kill all of the jews because they were losing the war and they felt like they needed to have power over some thing so they wanted to kill the jews. If they caught them they would all be killed. They would not kill the men because they would use them for slaves. They didn't have any use for the women, children or sick and old people so they killed them. In the beginning when they go into hiding anne thought that they would be able to do all of the things that they used to do before they went into hiding and anne was a kind of loud person so when she found out that they had to be quiet all night and day she knew that that was going to be hard for her and every body started getting mad at her because she was too loud and they thought that they would get caught because if someone heard them they would have to go to a death camp and they would all die so Anne tried to change for every bodys sake including hers because she wanted everybody to like her again because when she was loud nobody liked her but things were going to start to change around there.
On September 15th, 1942, The Nuremburg laws were passed. The Nuremburg laws said that anyone who suffers from an inheritable disease may be surgically sterilized if, in the judgment of medical science, it could be expected that his descendants will suffer from serious inherited mental or physical defects. This meant that you could get sterilized if you had a disease that you could pass on to your children or a disease that was very contagious. It also said that anyone suffering from chronic alcoholism could be sterilized too. Other laws were that you could not go out with a Jewish if you were German because Hitler and the Nazis wanted everybody to be German blood.

In this paragraph I am going to tell you about different kinds of characters. In this flat character group there you have Sampson and Gregory. Flat groups are when a character never changes through out the story and you always know what is going to happen next with them. They are family of the Capulets and they hate the Montagues because they are enemies to them and that is the same for the Montagues too. They dont change through the story because they want to fight and kill off the Montagues.
The next group is Round character, a character who is unexpected in story like you never know what is going to happen next with them. They are also the opposite of flat characters. A character from the play can be Romeo because he never does the same thing every single scene. He changes his mind many times and he does what ever to get Juliet and he is the main character in this play. Another one is Juliet because she doesnt do the same thing every time and she also can change her mind about Paris and marry Romeo.
The next one is Objectives. Objectives are things that a character would want to achieve before the end of the novel or play. One character is best but there are others like Romeo. Romeo would want to be married to Juliet and he would want the two families to get along. The next ones are Sampson and Gregory again and they would want to still kill some of the Montagues or at least one of them.
The next group is super objectives and they are what a character would want to see happen that may never be possible again. Like Lady Capulet would go good with this group because she would like to see Juliet to get married before she was fourteen and she would also want he to have a child but that will not be possible because she is turning fourteen in a couple of weeks. The next one that goes best is Montagues and Capulet because they are the worst enemies ever because they are both rich and they would love to see the other family go down. That is most of the different kinds of character groups that I wanted to talk about because I thought that it would be the best.

What is a Monkeynaut?
Monkeys were sent into orbit wearing space suits attached to chairs. They worked several hours a day, performing various mental and physical tasks in which they responded to signals by pressing pedals. The monkeys traveled with an assortment of newts, snails, flies, bugs, seeds and bacteria. After scientists finish testing the monkeys, they retire to a zoo or research institute.
Ham, who was another monkey who was first to go into orbit, went up just to see if man could with stand and Ham made it back alive and outlived his species so that was another experiment that Nasa or Russia did on Ham but I think it was us who did it on monkeys.
A monkey naught is species of monkey that NASA or somebody send up into orbit or onto a planet and does some kind of research for them or some kind of discovery for them and that is my definition of a monkeynaught. Gordo another famous monkeynaught went up and it made it back to earth safe but died which I will explain in detail in the next part of my paper.
The First Monkeynaut
Gordo, also known as Little Old Reliable, was catapulted 600 miles high in 1958, one year after the Soviets launched the doomed dog Laika, the first animal in orbit. Gordo's capsule was never found in the Atlantic Ocean, but Navy doctors said signals on his respiration and heartbeat proved humans could withstand a similar trip. And the first monkey in orbit was ham and was in a capsule. He made it back to earth safely and outlived his species.
Many other monkeys went up into space but died either when they got back to earth or up in space like Albert 1 he went up and when he cam back died a year later of suffocation. and many others went up like this one died of the anesthetic or something which in the next heading will tell in detail. So that is all I have to say about that and Gordo was the very first monkey in space
In June 1948 the first American monkey, Albert I, was launched in a V-2 rocket from White Sands, N. Mex., but it died of suffocation. A year later, on June 14, a second anesthetized monkey Albert II, was sent aloft in the same V-2 vehicle. That monkey survived the flight but was killed on impact. On September 16 a third monkey was killed when the rocket exploded at 35,000 feet. In December 1949, a fourth monkey was flown, with data on ECG and respiration successfully telemeters, but the monkey died on impact. A mouse sent aloft on October 31 was not recovered alive, although pictures were made of its behavior in a weightless state.
Aerobe rockets were also use.Aerobee rockets also were used. On April 18, 1951, Henry and his group sent aloft an anesthetized monkey and several mice. The animals were not recovered because of parachute failure. An anesthetized monkey and 11 mice sent aloft in an Aerobe rocket on September 20, 1951, were all recovered alive, although the monkey died 2 hours after impact. These mice became the first known living creatures to survive actual space-flight, conditions. The following May, two anesthetized monkeys, Pat and Mike, together with two mice, were flown to a 62-km altitude. Pat and Mike were the first monkeys to survive actual space-flight conditions.23 By 1952 the supply of V-2 rockets was exhausted, and biological experiments in rockets and missiles came to a halt Able and Baker followed in 1959. Although the monkeys were in good shape after their joint suborbital flight, Able died on the operating table as doctors were about to remove an electrode from under her skin. Baker died of kidney failure in 1984 at age 27.
Goliath, Enos and Scat back were John Glenn's predecessors. Only Enos the chimpanzee triumphed; Sam and Miss Sam survived their rocket rides as did the most famous space primate of all, Ham, a chimpanzee launched on Jan. 31, 1961. Mercury astronaut Alan Shepard became the first American in space three months later. the Atlas missile carrying Goliath blew up seconds after liftoff and the spacecraft containing Scat back was lost at sea. Despite the odds, Glenn made it to orbit and back in 1962. Bonny became ill aboard an orbiting satellite in 1969. The flight was cut short, and he died 12 hours after landing. (March 2003)

Im going to write an essay on Indian Catholic School: Making a world of difference. You should read this because when you read this you will understand how our school makes a difference. The main point Im trying to tell you is by supporting non-violence I think that changes the world today. We also support non-drugs use. We support other schools like St. Xavier and St. Charles. We cherish our god Maheo because we pray to him and he helps us. In the next paragraph Im going to support my points.
In this paragraph Im going support them better. My first point is that we support non-violence. Like if some student hates another student and brings a gun to school and tries to kill are harm the other student we would talk to the student and ask why they brought it to school. The second point is by supporting non-drug use. Like if a student brings marijuana to school and tries to sell it. They might try to sell it because they are depressed and want to get in trouble are they might be in need of money. My third point is that we support other schools like St. Xavier and St. Charles. We support them with donors and supply and a school. These are the ways we change the world today.
These are the following points. They help you understand non-violence. I think that these reasons are very good ways to change the world. (March 2003)
