Messages for Anne

The Czech students imagined that messages can travel back in time, wrote some encouraging mesages to Anne in the annexe and decoreated a tree with them.



Hi Anne, I know you have a bad relationship with your mother. But why don´t you speak about your problems with your sister? I think she will understand you and she will help you. You can spend more time with her and play games.

Dear Anne, It is super that you know so early what you want to do as adult. If you write your diary as a book, I believe that it will be a very popular book. And people, in the start of 21 century, will know, how people lived in the course of the Second World War.

Hi Anne, my question is about your relationship with sister. You can tell your problems to your sister. Maybe your sister can be your good friend. Don´t have any fear.

Hi Anne, my question is about fear. It must be horrible that you don´t know if and when the Gestapo will find you. You live in everyday fear. You are very brave.

Hello Anne, I respect you but I don´t understand your stance with your sister. I have one sister, she is younger than me (she is 12 and I am 14) but we speak about everything and have a lot of fun together. You almost don´t speak with your sister!

Please, continue in learning, do your hobbies (at home) and don´t think about bad things. After you will be happy (perhaps…).

Hi Anne, I´d like to write you something about the relationship with Peter. I think it is good for you that you have a friend. But your father says the truth. After the war everything may be different.

Hi Anne, I´d like to write you something about your relationship with mother. You are not the only one. In the world there are a lot of girls with the same problems. You have a great relationship with your father. It´s good. Don´t worry about mother. After the war it might be better.

Anne, you are very strong and very brave. I admire you. I wish you were my friend.

Hi Anne, if you lived in my time, we could get in touch on facebook. It must have been so difficult for you to live in such isolation.

Hi Anne, it must be horrible to be short of food for such a long time – I can´t even imagine it. Everything will be much better after the war.

Dear Anne, I can´t explain how much respect. I can´t imagine that fear, distress and suffering. No words can express what you went through.

Dear Anne, I wish you a lot of love with Peter. Love can disburden your situation. Peter undestands you and you can tell him everything about your feelings. With him you will feel realy safe.

Hi Anne, I think you were happy before war, because you and your daddy are friends. (What your sister and mum?). I don´t know what you thought when the war started. (Did you feel fear?). When you and your family went to the Annexe, you didn´t have many things (Did you want take more things to the Annexe?). You are writing a diary, I think that is a good idea. Maybe it will be published one day. All world can read your diary (what do you think about it? Do you mind?).
