The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Wednesday, September 2, 1942 Summary

  • Predictably, when eight people are cramped into a small space, they stop getting along. And pretty quickly, too. For example, Mrs. van Daan is angry that her dishes have to be used instead of Mrs. Frank’s.
  • Margot and Peter are allowed to read nearly all the books that Mr. Kleiman lends, but the grownups hold back one book on women. Peter’s very interested in this book, so he manages to sneak it.
  • After he is caught, he sneaks it again.
  • Mrs. van Daan asks Mrs. Frank what she thinks and Anne’s mom says that Margot is more intelligent and mature than Peter and that is why she should be allowed to read more mature books.
