By Anne Frank

  • Nobody but Anne loves the sound of the Westertoren clock, which signals every quarter of an hour. To Anne, it feels like a faithful friend.
  • Anne thinks they have the most comfortable hiding place in all of Holland.
  • However, she is always terrified that the neighbors might hear them and discover them. Margot has a cold but isn’t even allowed to cough.
  • Anne describes the silence of the hiding place as oppressive, especially at night. She can’t wait until the van Daans arrive so that the place isn’t so lonely.
