Write a brief note on the home assignment given to Anne frank

Dear Student,
Given below is the answer to your question.

Anne Frank was assigned a homework by ​Mr. Keesing, the math teacher because she was talkative. He asked her to write an essay on the topic 'A chatterbox'. Anne was confused as to what she had to write about the subject. She simply jotted down few points and kept the book in the bag. Later she spent time trying to think about the necessity of talking and points related to this. She came up with an idea and wrote three pages. She justified herself by saying that talking is a female trait and also promised that she would try to control her talking. Mr. Keesing enjoyed reading the essay and had a good laugh about it.

I hope you find this answer helpful. Please post more questions on the forum to be assisted by our team. 
Thank you.

Ever since the Gestapo entered into the rooms where eight people had been hiding for almost two years, the so-called Secret Annex in the center of Amsterdam has become one of the most famous and visited hiding places of Jews persecuted during the Second World War. Anne Frank's diary, begun in 1942 as a confidential correspondence to an imaginary friend and then revised with an eye to future publication, now counts as the most widely read document of the Holocaust. The diary has appeared in several edited and unedited editions since it was first recovered from the floor of the evacuated Annex.[1]A comparison of these versions reveals how Anne's voice has been shaped, some even say censored, by different editorial hands. This fact was again brought to the fore with the recent discovery of five previously unpublished pages which Anne's father had withdrawn from the manuscript before his death in 1980. By request of the extended Frank family, these were again excluded from the otherwise unedited, critical edition published in 1986. The missing pages have sparked discussion about authorial intention, posthumous control, familial privacy and discretion in the public domain. When the Austrian journalist Melissa Müller published her biography of Anne Frank in 1998, she was allowed to use only paraphrases of these deleted passages while issues of copyright were being fought out in the Swiss courts. A Dutch newspaper, however, did get away with posting them on the Internet and future editions of the diary will include the entries that have caused so much controversy. The question remains whether we should be allowed to read material that was either deliberately excluded by the author herself or that compromises the family involved.
