After watching Part 1 of the video, Anne Frank - Forget Me Not, write a blog entry addressing the following:

What do you know about Anne Frank and her family? Had you heard of her before? When or why?

Describe the character of Matt in the movie. What does he look like and what is his personality like?

What do you predict or hope will happen in Part II?

I have heard of her before in elementary school when a friend did a project. I do not remember much just that she and her family lived in the attack of a shop. I think Matt is kind of rude because of the way he was being raised. I think he talks like a New Yorker. I think part two will be them getting caught and him either going back or seeing what the concentration camps were like.

I do not know much to none about Anne Frank before this movie. I did learn about her in my lower grades, but I don't remember any of it. We learned stuff about the Holocaust because it is a important piece of history that everyone should know about. Matt looks like a jerk and at the beginning acted like a jerk, but as the movie wore on you could tell that he had a soft spot. Matt did not believe that there was ever a Holocaust and that millions and millions of people died over. Matt is a white male about 5 foot 11 and has short hair.

Anne and her family went into hiding after the Nazi's went to kill all the Jews. They lived in the attic above a factory for two and a half years before being discovered. They had a lady go in to give them food and update them of the happenings of the Nazi's. They eventually were discovered. The diary Anne kept was called Kitty and later the diary was published. Matt is a Nazi and he has a Nazi tattoo. In the movie one of the boys that is hiding out sees it, but doesn't say anything about it other than the warning to Anne of being careful with Matt. Matt's personality is really aerogant. He doesn't care about what happened and doesn't even believe in it. He thinks it's all false. I hope in the second part he ends up understanding and accepting that what happened is real and won't be so pro-Nazi.

Anne Frank and her family were Jews that were in hiding above a factory for two and a half years. Matt is the Neo-Nazi who doesn't know the correct way for the Swastika. He is at first a mean jerk who doesn't care about anything but discrimination but as time progresses he finds that he is starting to change his ways. I predict that Matt's Swastika will be revealed by Peter and they will shun him. After he exits the virtual reality he will change his ways and remove his Swastika tattoo.

i dont know much about anne frank before i saw this movie but i have heard that she was the hide and go seek champion. matt is a kid that is just wearing the nazi symbol just to be cool. he dosen't know exactly what the nazi symbol means and even if he did then he probably would wear it backwards.

I know that the Frank family had been in hiding for 2 and a half years before they were caught. I had heard about her and her family before in 6th grade and a little bit in 8th grade. Matt in the movie kind of reminds me of a bum. he always has a straight face and his personality seems to be plain and maybe a little rude. In the 2nd part of the movie in the movie I think Anne and Matt will become closer but she will discover that he's a Neo- Nazi and the people will kick him out because hes against them. I hope him and Anne get closer though so he learns what really happens and knows his facts.

I had heard of Anne Frank previously, back in eighth grade when we studied the Holocaust. I knew that she was a young, Jewish girl who was in hiding during the Holocaust. In this movie the character Matt is a man who looks to be in his late teens or early 20's. He's got light brown hair and a tattoo of the swastika on his arm. He speaks in modern day language, because he doesn't know how people talked back then. What I predict will happen in Part II is that Matt will get to know Anne a little better and realize that just because she's Jewish, doesn't make her a bad person and I think he'll regret saying he didn't want to learn about her because she was Jewish.

I have heard of Ann Frank before but haven really gone in to detail. All I knew was that she was hiding for 2 years. Matt didn't really believe in the Holocaust from what I understood. He is a skinny person with a bad attitude. He seems like a jerk. Anne saved him from being killed and he had on a yellow star but denied that he was Jewish. In the second half I think that the Frank's and their friends will get caught. Because we learned in school that they do get caught. I also hope Matt starts understanding what really happened.

I forgot to answer to the third part of the blog so here it is. I predict that someone rats out the frank family and they go to a death camp including Matt. Matt gets to see what it was really like to be the victim and understand that the Holocaust was real.

I believe that Anne Frank and her family were living in the secret annex for about 2 years until they were heard by some factory workers and t she would be hen discovered by the Germans. Her father was the only one to live to tell their story. I have heard of her before because of her famous diary. Matt is a young man who denies that Anne Frank ever lived and goes back in time to see what life was like as a Jew. He is fairly tall with brown hair and what I got from him was the he was somewhat snobby and believed what he believed and refused to listen to what others thought. I think that in the end Matt will realize how much pain and suffering that Jewish people had to go through and soon come to terms with reality and figure out that it did happen.

I have hear about Anne Frank before. All I knew was that she was in hiding from the Nazi's and she had a famous diary. Matt is a "white supremisist", he is racist towards jew's. In part 2 I think the Germans are going to find and kill Matt and Anne + her family.
