) The Diary of Anne Frank is not the only surviving primary source from the Holocaust, nor even the only published surviving diary or memoir. Why then has it become the text that introduces most American students to the Holocaust? What is it about her representation of the Holocaust that has been deemed palatable, relatable, and marketable? Is it because she’s exceptional, or because she’s just a regular girl? Is it the tone, the content (as in, the specifics of her family’s escape and process of hiding), or the author herself? How does what she represents, and how she represents it (and what she does not represent, and how she does not represent it), fit into the way America as a country wants its citizens to remember the Holocaust?
In answering this question, compare two separate entries — one you think is representative of the reasons for its ongoing popularity, and one you think might destabilize or contradict those reasons.
