Less than one month after she received the diary, Anne and her family were suddenly forced into hiding. Her sister, Margot, had been “called up” by the Gestapo. The Franks were reasonably prepared, since they had been sending furniture and supplies to a secret annex in Anne’s father, Otto’s, office building in anticipation of the Gestapo. The Franks and another family, the van Daans, had arranged to share the annex while some of Otto’s non-Jewish colleagues agreed

Motivated By Trevor Reitz Have you ever read The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom?

The classic book Diary Of a Young Girl is the haunting diary of Jewish teen Anne Frank, who hid from the Nazis for two years and whose promising talent was cut short by her death after she was captured by the Nazis in 1945 at the age of only fifteen. During her two years in the secret annex in which she hid with her family and another Jewish family, Anne changed and matured physically, psychologically, and emotionally from a friendly, but somewhat shallow child into a philosophical, mature young woman. Her changing thoughts and inner feelings reflect this change, propelling her into adulthood. Her diary is a window into her soul. Over the course of her two years in hiding, the “outer” and “inner” Anne, which were once one and the same, intertwine and differentiate until she forms a stoic outer shell to keep her increasingly dark, conflicted and self-aware thoughts secret.
Schwartz mentioned a good example when “ Jane was infant, who was orphaned by the death of her parents, and how Jane became the ward of a woman who always abused ,then she moved on to explain when Jane was as a little girl , who experienced her circumstances as arbitrary , which were beyond her power to change , also she explains the gap that happened in Jane’s childhood and her adultness and how she represents herself and how that ambiguity run” (549) . Schwartz on her essay went on to apply Derrida’s concepts of deconstruction on one hand like “split” and “the binary oppositions”. As she also investigates Jane’s family name and explains what her name means in Latin, also on this part of her essay on the other hand she go back to Freud big impact on the novel and used his psychological concept which is “the family romance “ that she thoroughly apply it on her essay and how Jane’s narrative embody the double wish in her novel like “original and derived, free and bound, an orphan and an heir” (553). Schwartz said that we have to over look the ambivalent representation of home and family that run throughout the novel (553). She gives a good example “how the ambivalence about home is manifested in the slippage of the family name Eyre” (554) .Also how Rochester and St. John are victimized by the trap that is family and how Jane herself escapes it.
