    Dear,Otto
    Its Niko. How are the kids? Its been bad over here. I know you know Hitler is coming. Its been bad here. First we had to wear yellow stars. Then, we were forced to move into the ghettos. We get beat up all the time. We even have curfews! I hope you guys are going somewhere safe. Please don’t let him get near Margot and Anne. Anyway, Hitler has been putting the Jewish in camps and I heard its really bad. Uh-Oh some Officers are coming they look mad!

    Your Friend,

    Daer Otto sense the 6 years has past the nazis has took over holand and the jews. The jews had to be registar and where yellow stars on their arms. They had to shop at surtent places and schools for jews. At 6 o’clock jews were off the streets at that time. hitler band everybody even germany to vote. I know you ran away from the germans the best way to run away is hide under ground or hide in someones shack. Good luck if you lose them.

    Dear Otto Frank,

    I’m writing to let you know what has been going on in Germany, in case Hitler is on his way to you in Holland. This way maybe you can prepare for yourself.
    The nazi’s have moved the Jews to the ghetto . They made the Jews have curfews. If you were outside after curfew, you would be shot. If people had a yellow star, it meant you have no rights and could get beat up at any time. Hitler is trying to end the jew population with concentration camps. They are big rooms where the Jews think they are going in for a shower but end up dead from gas they put in the vents.
    Im trying to warn you, i think you should get prepared. I feel that you and your family should gather your things and valuables and relocate for awhile. If Hitler comes he might come after you so just to play it safe. Go somewhere safe.

    Dear Otto,
    I heard the nazis took over Holland let me tell you how its been in Nazi Germany. Your people have been violated they were told to wear yellow stars and had to register as Jewish people. The jewish people had to move into ghettos they moved the jewish kids in separate schools. They had to shop on certain days, curfews and dissolved their bank accounts and take their property. If i were you i would go to USA so you don’t get violated

    Sincererely, your friend Rhashad
