"I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart."
The National WWII Museum asks...Is Anne Frank Right?
The National WWII Museum invites you to tell us, in your own words, if you agree with Anne Frank’s belief that "people are really good at heart". Read her diary to get a fuller understanding of her views, which were often contradictory, but always heartfelt. Use WWII and the Holocaust as a starting point and base you answer in part on examples you find in this history. This is NOT a research paper about Anne Frank or WWII. Your essay will be judged for originality, clarity of expression, adherence to contest theme, historical accuracy, grammar, spelling, and punctuation. The best essays will include specific examples from WWII and specific examples from today. You may use examples from your own experiences, as Anne so often did. Museum education staff will judge entries.
