The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Sunday, January 2, 1944 Summary

  • Anne rereads some of her journal excerpts from the past and is shocked to see how she describes her mother. She says she no longer gives her mother the trouble she used to because she no longer has the "moods" that she used to have. She’s grown up a lot in a year, in short.
  • This more mature version of Anne feels that her mother does love her, but the relationship is strained because of the tense situation they live in.
  • Rereading her diary, she feels that she often wrote when she was most emotional, so it isn’t an accurate representation about how she usually feels about her life and family.
