The Speech I am going to analysis was when I was in my last year in senior school back in England the speaker’s name is Eva Schloss she is from Austria and is also Anne Frank’s Stepsister. She talks about her life story on surviving the Holocaust and the difficulties she had to face to survive such as the death of her brother and father. It was probably the most touching and amazing story I have ever heard, it really made me appreciate life a lot more and be thankful for what we have. “Eva Schloss speech on her life was remarkably touching and interesting, She gives us spoilt kids a different perspective on life and to be grateful for what we have.”
She starts of by talking a lot about the history of the holocaust, and she connects them together with her own anecdotes and pass experiences which was a really good way to keep the audience attentive and gives us how much she has gone through. Especially experiences she had during the concentration camps which were hard to listen at times as it would was really sad to hear. Such as how her mum was selected to be gassed but from a miracle they were re united again and how they decided not to leave the barracks which eventually led to them being saved from the Russians.
Secondly she talks about life after surviving the holocaust on how she dealt with the horrors and memories she had of It, so she decided to go to London for work and the happiness she had meeting her husband in London, getting the news of her mother re marrying Anne Frank’s Father (Otto Frank) and having her first child despite all the bad things that happened to her. Lastly she discussed how when they were younger her brother who has passed away with her father in one of the camps, wanted to live on so he started writing poems which were in Dutch. So after he got killed Eva published her second book, which included all the poems her brother wrote. She ended the speech with one of the poems, which was really sad and touching.
The audience consisted of History students of all year groups and all of the Upper sixth, which is the equivalent to the seniors. As the majority of the audiences were Historians I found the content really appropriate, we all had to do a module on holocaust so it really deepened the understanding for the students and give a head start for those who haven’t done the module. As for the upper six, I found it appropriate as well, as it really gives us a different perspective on life and how we should cherish every moment of it.
