The setting for The Diary of Anne
Frank is in a “Secret Annexe” in
Amsterdam, Holland. Anne and
her family are not the only people
that are hiding in the “Secret
Annexe,” the Van Daans live with
them also. Anne draws a map in
the book to show you a layout of
the “Secret Annexe.” It’s pretty
large, although with eight people
living there, it’s quite crowded.
The plot for the story was for
Anne and her family to hide from
the Germans until the war was

what so ever, no contact with the
outside world, a small living area,
little food, and not much privacy.
Through all this, Anne still
maintained hope and a good
outlook on life.
The antagonists are the Germans.
They want to rid the world of
anyone who isn’t German, mostly
the Jews. Their leader is Adolf
Hitler. The Germans dropped
bombs during the air strikes on
Holland, as Anne said in her diary.
The Germans also run the
concentration camps where they
take innocent people and made
them work. They were extremely
cruel to those who went. If they
failed to do their tasks, the
Germans themselves would kill
them. It’s people...
