The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

Alfred Dussel Timeline and Summary

  • Mr. Dussel joins the Secret Annex in November 1942. He is grateful for a hiding place but does not seem to realize the immediacy of the danger, putting off coming until he can get his affairs in order.
  • Mr. Dussel angers Anne when he refuses to listen to her polite request to use the desk in their shared room two afternoons a week. He is only convinced when Mr. Frank intervenes on Anne’s behalf.
  • On the anniversary of his first year in the Secret Annex, Mr. Dussel does not thank anybody for opening up the Secret Annex to him.
  • After the Secret Annex is raided, Mr. Dussel does not survive the concentration camps.
