The Diary of Anne Frank, Act One, Scenes 1 and 2

Posted in Guided Reading at 9:37 am by mrpappas

Read scenes 1 and 2 of the play titled The Diary of Anne Frank Scrapbook on pp. 126-144 of your Holt Reader.  What you’ll read is only the beginning of Anne’s experience in the secret annex where her family hid for over two years.  And, actually the play begins after the war with Otto Frank coming back to the Amsterdam office building after being the only Holocaust survivor in the family.  It is there where Miep Gies gives him Anne’s diary and he begins reading, resulting in a flashback the “beginning”. 

Remember that the play is a dramitization of the events, so all that happens is not completely factually accurate.  Playwrites Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett do a masterful job of exploring the various themes, or truths about life, in this play while holding to many of the events and experiences oultined in Anne’s own diary.  To confine the play to a stage and two-hour time frame, however, requires them to takes some liberties.

As you read, pause at the prompts in the margins.  Respond to the prompts by commenting to this blog post.  I am only requiring you respond to prompts I’ve listed below.  Make sure you write in complete sentences and include all responses in one comment.  In other words, complete the entire assignment before submitting it for my approval.  Here are the prompts:

1. INFER (p. 129) Pause at line 45.  Why might the sight of the glove cause Mr. Frank to cry?

2. INFER2 (p. 130) What inference can you make about why Mr. Frank might want the papers burned (line 81)?

3. INFER (p. 131) Why does the Frank family go into hiding (line 116)?

4. COMPARE & CONTRAST (p. 132) Compare the description of the rooms here, in 1942 (lines 128-129), with their descirption in 1945 at the beginning of the play (lines 1-27).  How has the appearance of the rooms changed?

5. COMPARE & CONTRAST (p. 133) Compare this description of Mr. Frank, in 1942 (lines 156-159), with the description of him at the beginning of the play, in 1945.  How have those three years changed him?

6. INFER (p. 133) Re-read lines 174-177.  Notice how the description of Anne helps to reveal her character.  List three adjectives that describe your first impression of her.

7. CLARIFY (p. 134) Miep and Mr. Kraler are helping the Franks settle in.  How do Miep and Mr. Kraler know the Franks? (Look at the list of characters on page 127 for help.)

8. INFER (p. 136) Why are the characters wearing so many layers of clothing (lines 240-248)?

9. INTERPRET (p. 137) Why is the group silent after Mr. Frank’s speech (line 277)?

10. INTERPRET (p. 138) Re-read lines 311-312.  Do you think Anne slept well because she’s too young to understand the danger she’s in?  What do you learn about her character from this statement?

11. MAKE A GENERALIZATION (p. 139) Re-read Anne and Peter’s conversation in lines 334-361.  What does this dialogue tell you about how teenagers interact?

12. COMPARE & CONTRAST (p. 140) Pause at line 365.  Describe ways in which Peter’s personality is different from Anne’s.

13. INFER (p. 141) Pause at line 392.  Why did the Nazis force Jews to wear the Star of David?  What does the Star of David mean to Anne?

14. INTERPRET (p. 143) What does Mr. Frank mean in lines 455-456 when he says “There are no walls, there are no bolts, no locks that anyone can put on your mind”?

15. INTERPRET (p. 144) Describe how Anne is adjusting to life in hiding.  Base your answer on the diary entry in lines 498-516.

As always, do your personal best!!

    1. It probably reminded of his wife and daughter.
    2. He didn’t want anything that helps him remember when he got taken away and his family not being there anymore.
    3. Jews were in danger because of Hitler putting them in working or death camps
    4. The rooms where bare, as before, but they are now clean and orderly. In 1945 the rooms where a mess because of the Nazis coming and messing it up just to get them out of the Annex.
    5. He was moving much faster than he was earlier. He shook their hands. In 1945 he walks slower and is meaner than before.
    6. Happy, wired, and excited
    7. They where good friends with the Frank family.
    8. They can’t be seen with suit cases because they could be caught going in to hiding and go to a consideration camp.
    9. They were silent after that because they knew that he was right.
    10. No she l think she slept well because she knew that it was going to her last night there. That she is very scared.
    11. That they think alike after they start to talk together.
    12. He doesn’t care anymore. He doesn’t want to be a Jew any more.
    13. The Nazi forced them to wear them so they could tell if you where a Jew or not. The Star of David meant to Anne like something important to us today. To her is was a symbol of her religious beliefs
    14. Nothing can stop us from be leaving or remembering the hard and ruff times they went through.
    15. She adjust to it like a normal person would have to. She sad, alone, and scared that one day they are going to come for them.

    1. The sight of the glove might make Mr. Frank cry because it could be bringing back harsh memories of his childhood.
    2. He might want the papers burned because he doesn’t want to remember anything that might have been on those papers.
    3. The Frank family goes hiding because they are not safe and they do not want to be relocated.
    4. In the beginning the rooms were all decorated and fancy, but now the rooms are empty and not even a crumb is left in there.
    5. in the beginning of the play he looked very old and weak, like he was about to die, but now he looks youngher. His movements are more brisk, his manners confident.
    6. Three things that i use to describe Anne is energetic, courageous, and wierd.
    7. Miep and Mr. Kraler know the Frank’s because thay are workers in Mr. Frank’s business.
    8. They are all wearing extra layers of clothing so that they would not have to carry any bags because that might look suspicious.
    9. The group is silent after Mr.Frank’s speech because they are thinking about what he said.
    10. I don’t think that she slept well for that reason. I think that she slept well because she wanted to enjoy her time in her bed while she still had time. I learn that even through all the bad times, you should enjoy the good things while they last.
    11. This tells me that teenagers have a very fun time when they are older but some of them dont have friends.
    12. Anne is very friendly and has alot of friends and plans, but peter has nothing or no one to play with. he has no friends.
    13. The Nazi force jews to wear the star of david so that the Nazi know what race they are. To Anne, the star of David is like her ticket to being able to live.

    15. She says that she really is not that much used to hiding all of te time and that she wishes that she could go out and enjoy the world as a teen.

    1 – Because it might have reminded him about his wife or his daughter

    2 – He might want them burned so he doesnt think of all the memories and break down and cry again

    3 – Because the Nazis were after them and his daughter got a note from the the Germans saying they were looking for her so they had to go into hiding before they got her

    4 – Well at first the room was dirty and chairs were topled all of the place but then when they went back to go into hiding, the room was clean and the chairs were up right and it wasnt like it was before

    5 – Well I think those 3 years changed him because at first he had manner confidence and was shaking hands with people but then when they went into hiding he wasnt the same maybe because he did want to trust anybody

    6 – Quick, Interested, mercurial

    7 – I think they knew the Franks because they worked with them

    8 – Because they have to get as many clothes as they can, if they are carring suitcases then it would be to obveous

    9 – They are silent because he heard stomping feet from the street below

    10 – I think she slept well because she thinks she is safe, she understands the danger.

    11 – I think what its saying is that teenagers dont interact the way adults would and stuff ?

    12 – Anne is a loner and nice and stuff and Peter isnt a loner and he does bad things i guess since he cut his star off

    13 – To Anne the Star of David was the ricket to be alive cause they could be put in jail if they didnt have it on so it was her freedom

    14 – I think its saying that just because there hiding doesnt mean they got to be like there in jail and have no rights and cant do anything

    15 – I dont think she is adjusting to the new life style that good cause she is kind of thinking negative by saying she will never breath fresh air again and stuff like that. Saying she gets scared when she hers a footstep outside and she saif that they will get caught on day

    1) It might cause him to cry because it’s probably a lot of things going through his head and he don’t know what to do.
    2) Mr.Frank probably want the papers burned because he never want to see them again because it might bring back memories
    3) Anne and her family went hiding because they thought they were going to be safe and away from all the chaos at home.
    4)The appearence of rooms were changed because in 1942 the rooms were bare as before vut they are now clean and orderly and in 1945 the rooms were left on the left hardly more than a closet there is a skylight in the slpong ceiling, which was directly under this room is small
    5) He was doing more movement and he looked younger and at the beginning he looks sick and uncomfortable
    6) Fast, emotional and fashionable
    7)

    1.) Probably because its someone he knows that wore that glove and he thinks their dead.
    2.) He doesnt want any of the stuff because of probably investigation or something.
    3.) They are trying to run from the Nazis and get some shelter and find somewhere too go before they come.
    4.) The people who were there probably came and cleaned up for them.
    5.) The older he got and the things he saw probably changed his personality and how he got more mature.
    6.) Anne is active, changeable in her actions and moods, and dresses proper.
    7.) They work for Mrs. & Ms. Frank is how they kind of know them.
    8.) Proabably because of the weather and protection when they are walking along the streets.
    9.) They are shocked or dont know what too say because of everything he wants them too do and they cant fight back to what he says.
    10.) Yes , because of her age and maybe because people can know things if they are younger as long as someone explains too them what it means.
    11.) Bragging , trying to start stuff , and just wants more attention too her like she likes the cats.
    12.) Peter seems more confident and just wants too get out of the mess and stand up too them but he cant. Anne just wants too listen and wait till its over and then they can be free and do what peters doing.
    13.) Because , thats what they represent and they had too wear it and it meant probably nothing too her.
    14.) There are no things that can unlock them from all of this mess that they were going through during that time of the war.
    15.) They cant do anything or go outside too look at the hair when there hiding, and they always had to hide and know that the people downstairs were there protectors while they were staying there.

    1. It might used to be his wife’s glove.
    2. I think that he wants the papers burned so he can never remember it again.
    3. I think they went into hiding so the Nazis couldn’t find them.
    4. The rooms in 1945 are dusty curtains ragged and furniture over turned, and the rooms in 1942 the rooms are bare, clean and orderly.
    5. In 1942 Mr. Frank was younger, brisk and confident. In 1945, he is old and fragile.
    6. I would describe Anne as mercurial, quick, and interested in everything.
    7. Miep and Mr. Kraler know the Franks because they are workers in his business.
    8. The characters are wearing a lot of clothing because using suit cases is suspicious.
    9. There is silence after Mr. Frank’s speech because of the ending sentence was pretty severe.
    10. I think she slept well because she really doesn’t understand what is happening. I learn that she is oblivious.
    11. The dialogue tells me that teenagers interact like teenagers act like teenagers at school.
    12. Peter isn’t social, are talkative.
    13. The Nazis wore the Star of David because it would make it easier for the Nazis to tell who is a Jew in a crowd. The star of means to Anne the Star of David.
    14. I think he means that even though she can’t have fun outside, she can imagine a place where she can have fun.
    15. She is getting used to hiding out not being able to have fun outside.

    1. Maybe because it was his wifes.
    2. So he can just forget about his past and start over.
    3. Because they’re in danger, and the nazi are killing people.
    4. The first room was big. & The second room they we’re hiding in was fairly small.
    5.At the begining of the story he was described as an bitter old man. But now he’s nicer.
    6. young, curious, quick
    7. They used to work with Mr. Frank in his buisness.
    8.Because they would look suspicious carrying suitcases.
    9. Because its very dramatic.
    10. Yes. She doesnt worry alot.
    11. They just talk about things they have in common. General things.
    12. Peter seems shy, and Anne seems outgoing.
    13.To identify them. Its a religious symbol for her, because shes jewish.
    14. He’s saying no one can but a stop to your thinking.

    1) The glove might have been his wives or daughters glove and he remembered them.
    2He doesn’t want to know anything that brought him pain from the past and doesn’t want to deal with anything.
    3. Hitler came into power so they had to hide so that they wouldn’t get sent to camps.
    4The house was a mess and now the room was clean and ordinary and had very few things inside.
    5. He was younger and his movements were brink and spoke in a confident manner.
    6. She’s quick in her movements she’s mercurial in emotions and she’s interested in everything.
    7. and Mr.Kraler know each other form work or Mr. Franks business.
    8. Couldn’t take anything from their homes so that the germans would notice that they were escaping so they needed as much things as they could take since they’re going to live there for a period of time.
    9. Might die or get put into camps and they know this because of the Germans and so they know it’s a big deal.
    10. No, she knew it was a big thing and knew that it would be the last time she would enjoy her bed and shows she’s mature and not scared but strong.
    11. They don’t get along so well Anne has friends and Peter is a loner and like to be alone.
    12. Anne likes to play and have fun and enjoy life with friends and a joyful person while Peter doesn’t like to talk and shy.
    13.So the Germans can tell the difference between the people its to brand them and know who to treat bad. She feels pride into being a jewish girl and wouldn’t reject her background or her life roots.
    14. She can still learn and keep growing with books and have her imagation float but never go out.
    15.she’s taking it well and sees that if she doesn’t she’ll die because when she steps outside they’ll find her and suffer and her mother is treating her like her baby which she hates and its normal so shes adjusting to her new life very well.

    2. There were a lot of memories for him.
    6.The room was bare as before. But the difference was that the rooms were clean and orderly.
    8.quick, smart, and buissy.
    9. Miep and Mr.kraler know the franks because they are dutch people.
    10. Mr. Klaler is worried about the situation they are going through.
    11. I think that are going to get along really well.
    12. The characters are wearing a lot of layer of cloths because they go play outside.
    13. They are silent because the speech Mr. Frank said made them think about what he said. If they should really burn the things he said.
    14. I think that the person that has the leadership role is Mr. Frank. Because he is the only one who saids what might be the best for them.

    6. Curious, unique, and quick.

    9. They were silent because he said, “If we survive” which might get them scared.
    10. I think that she tries to take everything in, in a positive way.
    11.
    12. Peter is shy and doesn’t talk a lot but Anne is really out going and talks about anything without embarrassment.
    13. The star of David is their symbol and they are honored by it but the Nazi’s make them wear it to identify them as Jews in a negative way.
    14. He means that your mind is always free and you can go beyond any limit.
    15 She says she doesn’t know how to describe it but it’s weird knowing she won’t be going outside or to breath fresh air or shout and jump.

    1.Infer: Mr. Frank is Crying in the scene because of his daughter being taken and killed.
    2.Compare and Contrast: the rooms in 1942 are clean and less stuff inside, 1945 there was more furniture less orderely.
    3.Compare and Contrast: Mr. Frank is more younger at this time and he moves more briskly.
    4.Infer: In the descprition Anne is quick in her movements, she is mercurial in her emotions.
    5.Clarify: Mr. Kraler knows Mr. Frank because he also works with him.
    6.Infer: Mr. Kraler does not like the German occupation in the Netherlands. Mr. Kraler and Meip could be sentenced to death if they hide jews but they know that.
    7.Infer: The characters in this skit are wearing many clothes because if the Nazis caught them with bags they would look suspicous.
    8.Interpret: Everyone paused because all of the trash that they had must be burned.
    9.Interpet: The person with the leadership role obviously hear is Mr. Frank..
    10.Interpret: I don’t believe that it is because Anne is young and doesn’t understand because she does understand. Anne is tuff at heart and she will stand up for what she believes.
    11. make a generalization: Anne and peter act as if they are already friends and if they say something it won’t hurt them.
    12. Compare and Contrast: Peter said he was a lone wolf which means he holds himself up. Anne has many friends and they are probably down for whatever.
    13.Infer: The Nazis forced jews to where there star of david so they can spit on them.
    14.Interpret: There are no things that can stay in your mind at all times and forever.
    15.Anne doesn’t know how to feel because her adjustment is hard because she can’t breathe fresh air.

    2. He doesn’t want to remember the past of Anne or the rest of the family.
    3. So the Nazis wouldn’t come and take them to consentration camps.
    4. The rooms are bare, but clean in 1942. The room was lively and filled with children and warm to be in.
    5. In 1942, he was young looking and not as stressed as he is in 1945.
    6. She is interested, mercurial, and quick.
    7. Miep and Mr.Kraler are workers in Mr.Frank’s business.
    8. They said that they would look supicious carrying clothes, and suitcases.
    9. I think that they are quite because they are scared or thinking about how the rest of their life would be.
    10. I think that she understands the majority of it but not the part why they are being treated this way. She seems to be happy no matter what, and look at the brighter this in life.
    11. They like to get to know each other by asking questions, and seeing what they have in common.
    12. He’s more daring, Anne does what her father says and is a good girl.
    13. So they tell which ones are Jews and who aren’t. To her, it is a religious symbol, to show that she is a proud Jew.
    14. He means that even though we moved, we will still learn and keep up with the world news.
    15. She understands what she is doing but doesn’t like the quiet.

    2.Mr. Frank wanted to leave Amsterdam because the pace and the school reminded held too many memories to him.
    3.The voices of Mr. Frank and Anne fading together is a part of illusion to make it seem like she was a part of the things they were both saying.
    4.The appearance of the rooms in 1942 were more orderly but then in 1945 they seemed like they’ve been ambushed and destroyed.
    5.Mr. Frank was very different in 1942, he was more active and lively and loving, but in 1945 he changed from all the tragedy and pain of losing his entire close family.

    1. He might remember the old memories of Anne and the family which might make him cry.
    2. Mr. Frank might want the papers burned so that he would not remember all the old memories.
    3. The Frank family goes into hiding so that they would have to go to a Nazi ‘work camp’ and most likely get killed.
    4. At first the room was dusty and the curtains were ripped and now they are organized and cleaned.
    5. Mr. Frank in 1942 was a brave father and husband that took good care of his family and only wished to keep seeing his family. Mr. Frank in 1945 was an old and ill man with no family that had survived from being killed and only wished not to be remembered of his family. The three years that went past have made him a whole new person.
    6. Brave, positive, and strong girl.
    7. Miep and Mr. Kraler knew the Franks because they are both workers of their business.
    8. The characters are wearing so much clothing because using suitcases is suspicious.
    9. They are silent because they know what Mr. Frank was saying is true and that what he was saying isn’t a laughing matter, it was totally serious.
    10. I do not think Anne slept well because she’s too young to understand the dangers she’s in. That is stays positive, even when her circumstance is negative.
    11. The dialogue tells us that the teenagers have things in common which help them to interact very well.
    12. Peter has a personality that is much different than Anne’s.
    13. They forced them to wear the Star of David to show which ones were Jews and which ones were not Jews.
    14. He means that no one can stop you from gaining knowledge, at any point in life.

    5. They changed by Mr. Frank looking younger and he moves real briskly.
    6. The three adjectives I would use to describe Anne is sweet, loving, and has respect for her family.
    7. They know Mr. Frank because they went to Dutch with him Miep Gies is a young Dutchwomen and Mr. Kraler is a Dutchman.
    8. They where wearing so many clothes because if they didn’t they would get arrested.
    9. They where quite because they were trying to figure out why they had to burn it.

    1. It might make him cry because Anne probably died.
    2. I think he wants them to burn is because she’s probably sad about the death of Anne so he wants to burn it.
    3. They went hiding because they would have been killed if they didn’t.
    4. In the beginning, there were things in almost every room but now, things are empty because they have to hide.
    5. He is not very emotional like he was at first; He’s in control of himself.
    6. Anne is bright, intelligent, and brave for a girl like her.
    7. They both know each other because they are both Dutch.
    8. They are wearing a lot of clothes because they didn’t want the Nazi to know that they are Jews.
    9. They are silent because f they talk then they will get caught and the Nazi would probably find them and put all of them in jail or even try to kill them.
    10. I learned that she is really grateful.
    11. I think that Peter and Anne are getting close to each other and they might end up liking each other as well.
    12. Peter is more open to her than to any other person because he’s usually a shy person.
    13. They force them to wear stars is so they can tell that they are Jews. The star means a lot to Anne because it’s apart of her religion.
    14. Mr. Frank meant like since everyone is in the hiding place, then their brains aren’t going to be very open minded so basically he’s saying that nothing can stop you from learning anything since you’re not in the open world.
    15. She is still grateful and she is loving life like it’s any other day.

    12. Peter is more open to her than to any other person because he’s usually a shy person.
    13. They force them to wear stars is so they can tell that they are Jews. The star means a lot to Anne because it’s apart of her religion.
    14. Mr. Frank meant like since everyone is in the hiding place, then their brains aren’t going to be very open minded so basically he’s saying that nothing can stop you from learning anything since you’re not in the open world.
    15. She is still grateful and she is loving life like it’s any other day.

    1.The glove might bring back memories of his family and times they spent together.
    2.Burning the papers will help with the pain he is feeling toward his family being gone.
    3.If they didn’t go hide they would be arrested sooner than later.
    4.In 1942 the description about the rooms was ‘clean and orderly.’ But in 1945 the room is ‘sparsely furnished.’
    5.Over the three year period he looks aged and worn down. A period of time can drastically change someone. Those three years might have only been three years but to him, mentally and physically, it’s been 20 years.
    6.To me Anne is energetic, curious and happy.
    7.Both Miep and Mr. Kraler are in Mr. Frank’s business.
    8.Wearing layers of clothing wouldn’t make it look suspicious.
    9.I think everybody is getting hit in the head right now and coming to the realization that this is how it’s going to be. Plus it is a necessity to be quiet.
    10.It’s not that she is unaware of the situation; she is just a positive girl who believes that everything is going to be okay.
    11.Teenagers are curious and want to know all the facts about one another. They have a lot of questions and want interesting answers.
    12. Anne questions and Peter does what he wants even if it can put his life in jeopardy.
    13.The star was to signify that the Jews were the Jews. Anne felt somewhat defensive toward the Star.
    14.What he said means that you can think whatever you want; no one will judge you on what you think because it’s your thoughts not theirs.
    15.She explains that it’s hasn’t sunk in yet and it won’t for a while. She hasn’t gotten used to the fact of never acting the same as before; never jumping or playing around. But like the little positive and optimistic girl she is, she says “Otherwise, things are going better.”

    1. The sight of the glove might have reminded him of his home or someone he misses.

    2. Mr. Frank probably wanted the papers to be burned because he probably didn’t want any memory/memories of them.

    3. The Frank family go into hiding because they most likely didn’t feel safe during the Holocaust and didn’t want to be under the Nazi’s control and Anne wasn’t able to go to a Dutch school, to the movies or able to ride in a car anymore.

    4. The rooms in 1942 were sparsley furnished, with a few chairs, cots, a table or two, windows are painted over/covered with makeshift black out curtains, sink and a gas ring for cooking, wood burning stove for warmth in the bigger room and the rooms are dusty, curtains are in rags, chairs and tables are overturned.

    In 1945, the rooms are now bare, but are clean and orderly.

    The rooms 3 years ago (1942) were dirty, dusty, and unorganized and in 1945, the rooms are then clean and organized.

    5. In 1942, Mr. Frank was younger looking, movement was brisk, and his manner confident. His clothes were nice looking/in good shape .

    In 1945, he was then weak, ill, moved slowly and his clothes were threadbare.

    Within these 3 years, I believe that Mr. Frank became weak emotionally/emotionally drained and mentally distured to to the things that had been taken away from him, like his business, home and his peace of mind.

    In addition, the Holocaust changed his appearance, the way he acted towards people and his physical and mental health.

    6. outgoing, energetic, bubbly.

    7. The way Miep and Mr. Kraler know the Franks is that they were business partners/worked for Mr. Frank.

    8. The reason the characters are wearing so much clothing if they’re caught walking the streets with suitcases, they’ll be arrested.

    9. The reason the group is silent after Anne’s speech is because they think the Holocaust would most likely never end.

    10. Yes, I do believe Anne slept well because she doesn’t understand the endangerment she and her family is in right now and I learned that Anne’s character in a way is not too worried about what’s going to happen next.

    11. This dialogue tells me that the teens both like cats, but Peter is obviously the “lone wolf” and Anne is more outgoing and fun.

    12. Peter’s personality is different from Anne’s because Anne is nice, sweeet, friendly and cautious and thinks twice before she acts and Peter’s personality is more like rebellious and a bit snappy.

    13. The Nazi’s forced the Jews to wear the Star of David so that they could be easily identified by the Nazi goverment and the Star of David means a lot to Anne.

    14. When Mr. Frank told Anne that “There are no walls, bolts or locks that anyone can put on your mind” he meant that even though she can’t/doesn’t go to school anymore and that she can no longer go outside and have fun, your education can never be taken away from you.

    15. Anne is adjusting to not being able to go outside and have fun, doing outdoorsy things, going to the movies, school, and riding in cars and things that the Dutch kids can do and since she isn’t going to school or lives in her parent’s home anymore, she is slowly getting used to sharing a room with people and reading books and all for education.

    1.The sight of the glove causes Mr. Frank to cry because it was probably his wife’s glove.
    2.I can infer that Mr. Frank wants to burn the papers because he doesn’t want to bring any memories with him.
    3.The Frank family goes into hiding because they don’t want to get caught and be sent to a camp.
    4.The appearance of the rooms has changed by becoming dirtier and trashier.
    5.Over the three years, Mr. Frank has changed by him becoming sluggish, carefree, bitter and he lost his confidence and self-esteem.
    6.Three adjectives that describe my impression of Anne are quick, mercurial, and interested.
    7.Miep and Mr. Kraler know the Franks because they work with each other in Mr. Frank’s business.
    8.The characters are wearing many layers of clothing so that they don’t have to carry luggage.
    9.The group is silent after Mr. Frank’s speech because they are practicing for everyday and they aren’t used to not being able to make noise all day.
    10.Anne slept well because she doesn’t understand what is going on. I learn from this that she isn’t a very bright girl and she doesn’t pay attention.
    11.The dialogue tells me that teenagers get along when they talk about stuff like school and animals.
    12.Peter is frustrated that he has to hide and he doesn’t care about anything and Anne is always following the rules even if she won’t get in trouble about them.
    13.The Nazis force Jews to wear the Star of David so they can know who is Jewish. The Star of David is something very important to Anne and she feels that she can’t burn it.
    14.Mr. Frank means by his saying that you can think of and imagine anything that you want to and that there is no limit on what the mind can do.
    15.Anne is adjusting by realizing that she will stay in that place for a long time and she won’t have as much freedom and she accepts it. She is happy for Miep and Mr. Kraler helping them and she is treated like a baby by her mom.

    1. They sight of the glove might make Mr. Frank cry because he might miss his wife or it could have been Anne’s ; who he also misses.
    2. He probably wanted the papers burned because it would be too many memories to cope with.
    3. The Franks’ go into hiding so that they wont get caught by the soldiers and sent away.
    4. In 1942 the rooms were bare , dull , clean, and orderly. In 1945 the rooms are busy, overturned chairs and the curtains are in rags.
    5. In 1942 he is confident and brisk but in 1945 he is weak and ill.
    6. My first impression of Anne is that she is interesting , quick , and mercurial.
    7. Miep and Mr. Kraler work in Mr. Frank’s business.
    8. They didn’t want to look suspicious carrying around suitcases, so they just layered up.
    9. They become silent because they hear marching outside and think that it’s the soldiers coming to capture them.
    10. I do believe that she is too young and I learned that she is a carefree person.
    11. They really don’t think much of the situation and danger at hand but it does show that Anne is a friendly person and Peter seems like the shy type.
    12. Peter is more timid and quiet and Anne is more friendly and outgoing.
    13. They were forced to wear the stars to show that they were branded and so they could spit on them. To Anne , the Star of David is the symbol of their religion and heritage.
    14. I think he is trying to say that there is an endless imagination that no one can take away from you ; so maybe she won’t be so bored after all.
    15. Anne is going to try and tolerate her new life but it is not easy because there is not much that she can do and her mother insists on treating her like a baby.

    The sight of the glove may cause him to cry because it brings back memories of his wife and children.
    Mr. Frank probably wants the papers burned because he wants to get rid of everything that brings back memories.
    The Frank family goes into hiding because they had to wear yellow stars and the Nazi’s were trying to get rid of Jews.
    The rooms are before but they are clean and in order. The other rooms are small barely furnished with a few tables,cots,and chairs.
    At first Mr. Frank’s clothes are bare and he looks ill. Then after 3 years he looks cleaner and younger.
    Anne is curious, quick and ready .
    Miep and Mr.Kraler now the Franks because they are friends .
    Characters are wearing so many clothes because they needed to take as many clothes as they could because they didn’t want to take them in suitcases and have them look suspicious.
    They are silent because they have to stay there until everything is over without being caught.
    No I don’t think that Anne slept well because she was too young to understand the danger. This tells me that she is a positive person.
    The teens interact good because they get along and know what each other are talking about.
    Peter isn’t as sarcastic or positive as Anne .
    The Nazi’s forced them to wear the star of David to let them know they were Jewish. The star of David means kind of a lot to Anne.
    Mr. Frank means that nobody and nothing can block her mind.
    Anne’s life has adjusted because she can’t go outside. She’s paranoid whenever she hears someone outside because she thinks they are coming for them .

    1. He may think that its a glove of one of his family members. It means they may of been captured.

    2. he wants no trace of papers because he doen’t want the green police to know that they may still be there.

    2. He probably wants the papers burned because of memories of his family.
    3. The war starts and Jews are being killed and taken into concentration camps.
    4. The room are bare but are now clean and orderly, soon after everybody dies it becomes cold and empty.
    5. In the beginning Mr. Frank cared about his family and was determined to protect his family but once they passed away he stopped.
    6. Kind, mature, and thoughtful
    7. Miep had worked for Mr. Frank.
    8. They are wearing so many clothes because it would look suspicious to carry suitcases so they pile on clothes that they will need instead of carrying them.
    9. They are all taking in that if they do anything besides what Mr. Frank said they would all possibly be kilt.
    10. That she was showing maturity by sleeping well even though she knew that would be her last night in her real bed.
    11. Usually some teenagers if they don’t know you they will not interact with you, but if they friendly they will tell you about themselves and what they like to do.
    12. He kind of has a care free mentality but on the other hand Anne h=is worried about the things that are happening and has a different outlook.
    13. They made them wear the star of David so they could tell who was Jew and who wasn’t, also the star of David was still a part of her religion so she couldn’t just burn it, it was probably disrespectful in her mind.
    14. Nobody can decide what you feel or how you act, so do what you think you should do.
    15. She still has some things to get use to but in my opinion she is doing very well for someone her age to be changing environments like that.

    1. Mr. Frank started crying because of the sight of the glove because it probably belonged to one of his daughters or wife.
    2. Mr. Frank probably wanted the papers burned because he didn’t want to think about the tragedy that happened.
    3. The Frank family went into hiding because they didn’t want to get caught and be sent somewhere.
    4. One of the rooms had less stuff, the windows where painted, the chairs where fallen, and it had furniture.
    5. At the beginning of the story he was more depressed and bitter because of what happened, and later he was more confident, tall, and brisk and young in 1942.
    6. Three adjectives that describe Anne are quick, mercurial, and interested.
    7. Miep and Mr. Kraler know Mr. Frank because they work together.

    10. I think Anne is too young to understand the danger she’s in because she doesn’t know exactly what’s going on and what would happen if they are caught. We learn about Anne’s character that she is young and that she loves sleeping in her own bed.
    11. The dialogue tells us about how teenagers interact by them being kind and friendly and that they don’t really know what’s going on but they like to talk about their lives and what they have or like to do.

    3.) The Franks go into hiding to avoid the Nazis and the Concentration Camps.

    1. INFER (p. 129) Pause at line 45. The site of the glove might have made Mr. Frank cry because it held too many memories for him.
    2. INFER2 (p. 130) the papers that Anne wrote reminded Mr. Frank too much of her and it hurt him too much to think of her.
    3. INFER (p. 131) Mr. Frank and his family went into hiding because they were Jewish.
    4. COMPARE & CONTRAST (p. 132) in 1942 the rooms described in the story seemed semi-neat and prepared but in 1945 they seemed ambushed and destroyed.
    5. COMPARE & CONTRAST (p. 133) In 1942 Mr. Frank was energetic and loving but in 1945 he seemed old, worn out almost depressed.
    6. INFER (p. 133) Re-read lines 174-177. Energetic, Child-like, and Changeable.
    7. CLARIFY (p. 134) Miep and Mr. Kraler were workers in Mr. Frank’s business.
    8. INFER (p. 136) The Frank family probably wore lots of layers to stay warm and so they could have enough clothes and so they didn’t have to carry things, because that would look suspicious.
    9. INTERPRET (p. 137) After Mr. Frank spoke, the room was quiet because he seemed so serious and sad.
    10. INTERPRET (p. 138) Re-read lines 311-312. I think that Anne slept fine not knowing about the danger her family was in, but in the back of her mind she was thinking like I do when I sense something wrong.
    11. MAKE A GENERALIZATION (p. 139) Re-read Anne and Peter’s conversation tells me that they are going to be friends they are very friendly with each other.
    12. COMPARE & CONTRAST (p. 140) pause at line 365. Peter seems shy and Anne is outgoing.
    13. INFER (p. 141) Pause at line 392. During the Holocaust the Nazis made the Jews wear the Star of David because it represented that they were Jewish and the Star of David represents Jewish religion but to the Nazis it was the Star of Shame.
    14. INTERPRET (p. 143) “There are no walls, there are no bolts, no locks that anyone can put on your mind” When Mr. Frank said that I think he meant you can think what you think there is no limit and nothing to lock them away you can think anything and bring them to life too.
    15. INTERPRET (p. 144) I don’t think Anne was comfortable with hiding.

    THE GLOVES MAY HAVE BEEN SOME ONE IN HIS FAMILY AMD IT MAD HIM THINK ABOUT THE PAST AND HIS FAMILY. I THINK THAT HE WANTED THE PAPERS TO BURN SO THAT HE DOES NOT HAVE ANY BAD MEMORIES. THEY WENT INTO HIDDING BECAUSE THEY WERE IN WAR WITH THE GERMAN. I THINK THAT THEY WERE HIDDING BECAUSE THEY DID NOT WANT TO GET SENT TO A CAMP FOR JEWS OR THEY DID NOT WANT TO BE TOURCHERD. BACK THEN THE ROOMS WERE MESSY AND THEY WERE UNSANITIZED. THEY MAD THEM LOOK LIKE THE BAD PEOPLE. TO ME SHE WAS OVER EXCITED AND SHE WAS QUICK. THEY BOTH WORK FOR MR.FRANK. SO THAT THEY WOULD NOT BE SUSPECTED OF ANY THING. SO THEY COULD KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND THEM. I KNOW THAT SHE IS A PERSON THAT IS TRYING TO MAKE A DIFFRENCE IN THE WORLD. THEY TALK LIKE THERE IS NOTHING WORG. PETER IS SHY AND HE LIKE TO STEY TO HIM SELF. THEY WERE FORCED TO WEAR THAT SO THAT THEY WOULD NOT GET MIXED UP WITH OTHERS. NOBDY WOULD KNOW WHAT THEY ARE THINKING INSIDE. SHE THINK IT FUNNY THE WAY PEOPLE THINK IN THE WORLD.

    1.) I think the white gloves would give him the thought of his wife and daughter , and how he doesn’t have them anymore . So that could have caused him to cry .
    2.) That those paper brung back back a lot of bad memories .
    3.) Because they didn’t want to take the risk of being out in the open when they could have been taken away by the German army.
    4.) In 1942 the rooms were really bare and dirty with chairs flipped over then in 1945 everything was cleaned up .
    5.) I think the three years basically turned him into a depressed, grumpy old man , like the three years turned into thirty years.
    6.) Fast, Smart, and Different.
    7.) I think they where co-workers.
    8.) I think they did that to look less suspicious.
    9.) I think they were so quite from being depressed because the just had to cut down on everything.
    10.) Yes i do think she had a good sleep , because she went to sleep with no worries because she did know that just because she was leaving didnt mean she wasn’t coming back.
    11.) The he was really shy, basicly everything that Anne wasn’t.
