In the Holocaust we see the extreme of human evil, but we also see that there were at least some people who did the right thing, who tried to help those who were being so cruelly and unjustly persecuted and killed. So, a family was willing to hide the Franks, and the Franks themselves were willing to live under very difficult conditions in the hope of the eventual return of sanity to Europe - a hope which in their case was not realized, since sanity did not return soon enough. So, Anne Frank showed courage. Perhaps we can be inspired to be courageous under difficult circumstances. And who knows what difficulties are coming in the 21st century. It promises to be, if anything, an even more difficult century than the 20th. And the 20th was incredibly difficult.
