She began writing her thoughts in her diary at age twelve., and continued writing after she and her family went into hiding. Hear Anne's story in picture book form and discuss how her diary is one reminder of how each of us is an individual desiring and deserving justice as well as the opportunity to live our lives freely. Then, students will make their own handmade diaries to tell their own stories.
