My opinion

Personally I liked the movie, Diary of Anne Frank. What I like about it is how it was based on a true story and I got to see what life was really like for them. I think it was a pretty accurate representation of the real event. I like how they also made the characters look like the real people from the event. Something about the movie that makes me like it is how even though it is a sad event they made parts that were uplifting without ruining the concept of what should really be happening. Even though it was a sad event and movie I still enjoy the movie.

Would I recommend

I would recommend this book. The reason I would recommend this movie is because of the detail. The detail is so precise with what the real event was. It's exactly how you would've thought the real thing would be. It's a sad movie but they also leave parts out that would be a little to sad. Also it's a lesson to never forget what happened and there are a lot of valuable things you can take out of it. That's why I would personally recomend this movie.

Greek Genocide

On October 28th 1940, the start of the Greek Genocide has started, a genocide is a mass killing of one set group of people.. One of the popular genocides was a popular resistance and lasted through the years of 1941-1944. All of this took place during the time that world war II was going on. The point of the genocide was that that they wanted all of the christian minorities of the ottoman empire to be gone. This resistance was mainly controlled by the Nazi germans, Italy and Bulgaria, because they were their main allies.

 

During the Greek resistance they had two major goals, one of them was to occupy armies of greece and then the other was to get any form of any military action out, which was against the two main groups. Unfortunately the greece people had a very rough time because they had a big downfall which lead to ten of thousands of Greek people to not have jobs and no money. This caused many of them to flee the country in hope to find bigger and better opportunities.

 

 

How This Genocide is Similar to the holocaust

This genocide was actually very similar to the holocaust. Both of which there was a group trying to kill a large race and group of people, even thought the holocaust was more severe and larger, they both where a mass killing. Both of the enemies trying to kill where germans but the greek one had other killers where in which the holocaust just had the germans. Something that was also similar is that they were both going on during some period of war of around a war. That's what they have in common and share.
