Lester Prairie student writes about Anne Frank field trip

Jennifer Smith, Lester Prairie HIgh School

“Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.” Thirteen-year-old Anne Frank wrote these words in her cherished diary months before she was taken to a concentration camp, where she died from typhus at age 15.

Although Anne experienced many hardships; cooped up in a tiny attic for two years, living in terror hiding from the Nazis, and hated for her Jewish ancestry; she stayed positive and treasured her life until her tragic death.

The eighth-graders at Lester Prairie High School read about Anne in their English classes and performed the play, as well.

These students had the opportunity to watch the play presented at Park Square Theatre in St. Paul March 15.

The students enjoyed watching the play come to life. They could see where Anne was coming from, and how she was similar to them in many ways.

Just like Anne, these students have experience the joys and awkward stages of being a teenager/adolescent.

I hope, through watching the play, they could relate some way to Anne and feel empathy for her, too.

Anne once said, “Human greatness does not lie in wealth or power, but in character and goodness. People are just people, and all people have faults and shortcomings, but all of us are born with a basic goodness.”

Anne’s words were relevant in her day and they continue to resound in the hearts and minds of people today. Wouldn’t it be nice if we all thought this way?
