The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Friday, March 17, 1944 Summary

  • Mr. Kugler has been exempted from digging.
  • Anne reflects about how she feels independent and grown up, yet her parents keep treating her like a baby and doing annoying things like reminding her to get ready for bed at 8:15pm.
  • Both Anne and Margot feel that they’ve grown up very quickly since they’ve been in hiding, and their parents still haven’t caught on.
  • Anne thinks everything would be fine if she had Peter. This clearly isn’t true, but she’s blinded by infatuation and hiding for her life, so we're not judging her.
