The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Monday, May 22, 1944 Summary

  • The British invasion of Holland hasn’t happened yet, so Mr. Frank loses his bet with Mr. van Daan.
  • Anne thinks it’s a bit foolish that the Dutch people think it’s the duty of the English to liberate Holland. Anne points out that the first priority of the English is to protect their own people.
  • More Dutch people are beginning to express anti-Semitism and Anne hopes that the good, righteous Dutch people will prevail over the racists.
