The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Monday, August 23, 1943 Summary

  • Anne describes the early morning, before breakfast, which seems to be the only time the Franks have a bit of real family time.
  • At 8:30am they have to stop using water, flushing the toilet, and making noise because the office workers start showing up.
  • The Franks settle in to reading, knitting, and having quiet family time.
