The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Tuesday, March 14, 1944 Summary

  • Food is so scarce that the Secret Annex members are now resorting to eating rotten food—in this case, kale that has been in the barrel for a year.
  • The people who supplied their food are all arrested, and Bep can’t keep up with the necessary grocery shopping, since all of the other protectors are sick.
  • Anne describes how everybody is coping with the situation, and it doesn’t sound pretty. Everyone thinks only about himself or herself—except for Mr. Frank, who is considerate and optimistic.
