When Hitler took the power in Germany in 1933, the family moved to Amsterdam in the Netherlands in order to escape the Nazi`s regime persecution of the Jews.

***Although I am on page 136, but up to this point I realized many things from this great book. Being hide is not easy for human beings. It is not like jail or somewhere else, where you have not access just to your social life. In this book the writer and her family have no access not only to their social life like school, hospital but also they are not able to turn away the curtains of their rooms in order to taking sunshine. Fears, hopes and feelings are gathered in one attic, and controlling them are a very hard job. Fear of being arrested, Hope for having a good future and feeling the pains which are piercing your body and your soul, are not a normal daily life.
