Margot, sixteen, receives the call-up from the Nazis, and the family enters into hiding.
Margot begins her school at home. She is considered an intelligent, responsible young woman by the adults in the house.
Their parents constantly compare Margot and Anne, and Margot is considered the more virtuous.
Margot expresses minor jealousy that Anne has a romantic relationship with Peter van Daan. Margot hopes that she, too, can be there for Peter when he needs a friend – but in a sisterly way. She advises Anne how to approach their father about her relationship with Peter.
Margot goes to the same labor camp as Anne and dies of typhus just a few days before Anne during late February or early March of 1945.
