The Diary of Anne Frank Friday, March 12, 1943

By Anne Frank

Friday, March 12, 1943

  • Anne describes "Boche," the downstairs office cat, nicknamed after the Germans because he is always instigating fights.
  • Everybody is sick of eating beans, which is all they’ve been eating.
  • Topics of Anne’s writing for the day: air raids, cigarette shortages, canned food, and Anne’s shoes are too small.
  • Mr. Frank declares he will never go to another barber again because Anne has gotten so good at cutting his hair. Anne just wishes she didn’t nick his ears so often.
