Anne Frank has many loves. She loves reading, writing, nature, movies, and her family and friends. She’s also obsessed with romantic love, experiments with romantic relationships, and has vivid romantic fantasies. Anne is in love with life and with living. Yet, because Anne has gone into hiding with her family (and some others) to try to stay alive in Nazi-occupied-Holland, during World War II, she lives a life of fear, frustration, and isolation. In her Diary Anne describes the almost always painful, sometimes ugly, and at times stunningly beautiful ways her love moves and changes under these conditions.
Anne and Peter’s romantic relationship never develops into true love.
