In the essay The Ignored Lesson of Anne Frank Bettelheims thesis is that because the Franks had decided to go into hiding as a family as opposed to hiding out separately they were refusing to accept what was going on around them and they contribute to their own deaths by not fighting to stay alive I mostly do not agree with Bettelheims thesis the Franks did what they thought was best Yes they could have hid out individually but thats not what they wanted They wanted to be together and be together for as long as possible The Frank family chose to hide together because they would rather be together than apart obviously I do agree with Bettelheim that they should have devised some sort of escape plan in case they were found They should have had some sort of weapon to detain the SS soldiers for some time in order for the children to get away safely It would have been a smart idea to make such a plan but they believed otherwise I do not agree with what Bettelheim said about it not being desirable to want to continue living as a family even with all the evil going on around them The Franks found it to be a desirable lifestyle and its what they chose to do Just because Bettelheim found it to be undesirable and others may have found it to be undesirable doesnt mean the Frank family also did By hiding out as a family they were not ignoring the threat of the Nazis they were doing what they though was best which was be together for as long as possible Had I been a Jew living during this time period I would have wanted to live hiding separate as to have more chance of survival but thats me saying that now I dont know what would have been worse dying with your family or dying without your family I
