Okay, another question on the Diary Of A Young Girl by Anne Frank.
In the book, Anne says this statement: "There is nothing we can do but wait as calmly as we can till the misery comes to an end."
How does this statement help to place readers in the historical con-text of the writing of her diary?


Here is the answer I think it may be:
It says to wait until the misery comes to an end. We live in a free country now, so we have no misery.

    It says to wait until the misery comes to an end. <~~You have merely restated what she said. Delete this.

    We live in a free country now, so we have no misery. The question doesn't ask about how we live today. It asks how her statement helps you put yourselves in her shoes.

    Try again.

    She is going through a very tough time and can't get herself out of this rutt because she is Jewish?

  • English -

    Isn't her misery being cooped up with her family and the others in an apartment. She can't leave this apartment.
