Anne believed that her personality was split into two. One side contained her exuberant cheerfulness, her flippancy, the joy in her life, and above all, her ability to appreciate the lighter side of things. This side would lead her to appreciate flirtations, a kiss, an embrace, and even off-colour jokes. The other side of her was purer, deeper, and finer, subsumed under the lighter side of her. She could be an amusing clown for an afternoon and a profound thinker but the former was always a diversion, a comic interlude, soon to be forgotten which most people hardly knew. Her lighter and more superficial side always stole a march on the deeper side. Anne serves as a role model for the youth of today because she offers a lesson in grace and courage in the face of unforeseen adversities. Her writing has a transformative power that takes everyday mundane activities and makes them into amusing anecdotes, showing us how a claustrophobic space such as the secret annexe can also be fertile ground for creativity and imagination. Anne deftly navigates her inner and outer world, weaving them together through her contemplative stance on life which is often undercut by her ironic interjections. She not only captures her personal journey but also gives us a commentary on the sociocultural atmosphere and especially, the experience of the war from the perspective of lived reality. In doing so, we come to meet a young girl, full of potential and dreams, who lived under the palpably real threat of death and destruction and yet managed to see the positive side of life and hold on to her optimism. That is a lesson that not just the youth but also the grown-up adults can take in life.
