The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Wednesday, September 29, 1943 Summary

  • It is Mrs. van Daan’s birthday and she gets some food rations, but really nothing very exciting.
  • Bep has a fit of nerves. So many of the other "protectors" are sick that most of the care and errands for the Secret Annex folks is up to her. She is doing too much work.
  • Mr. Dussel is all fussy because he thinks everyone is treating him badly. Mrs. Frank tells him that he has been a disappointment and the cause of a lot of trouble. Anne thinks the man hasn’t done anything to merit being liked.
  • Pim and Mr. van Daan are at odds again because the van Daans have been holding back food and acting sneakily.
