The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Monday, May 8, 1944 Summary

  • Anne discusses the irony of how rich her family was—both her parents grew up with a lot of wealth—compared with how they live now, with not even enough to eat.
  • Anne doesn’t believe she needs to be rich, but does want to study in London and Paris, have beautiful clothes, and live a life of adventure.
  • Miep tells Anne and Margot about a party she went to at a rich cousin’s house and about all of the delicious food. The sisters are really hungry and can’t stop thinking about the fancy feast Miep enjoyed.
