When Anne says, "...In spite of everything, I still believe that people are good at heart..." What does this mean? And do you agree? Why or why not.

Anne is the eternal optimist until the end. Regardless of the horrors that surround her, Anne has also known good people, people who put themselves in danger for her family, These are the people and the world she believes in. To have given into hopelessness would have destroyed her. She kept her faith and never lost hope. I find this difficult to accept given the context of WW2 and the holocaust. Indeed, mankind's history is littered with war and genocide. There are certainly good people but I fear that evil prevails despite the good things people do.
