Anne’s mother, Mrs Frank was very upset with Anne after she saw Anne wasn’t acting like a woman. She thought it was very disturbing and not what you would do in a formal setting. Her mother said to her “ Anne, please” but Anne did not listen to her mother and just said “It’s alright I’ve got three more on”. She said this as she was taking off her clothes in front of everyone which her mother thought was not very “lady like”. This shows conflict between Anne and her mother because they could not agree on what Anne should do. I think it is very annoying when Mrs. Frank has to yell at her daughter over and over again. If Anne said “ok mother” they would not have fought and no one would see tension between them. Anne was arguing with Peter after she hid his shoes. He said “You’re going to be sorry” and Anne replied “Am I?” Her mom called out Anne yet again saying “Anne, dear!”. Anne continued to be disruptive when she was rolling on the floor with Peter. Her mother was horrified and said to them “Anne!...Peter!” She continued to conflict with her and she said “Anne, dear, I think you shouldn’t play like that with Peter. It’s not dignified.” I feel that Anne expresses her feelings too dramatic and sometimes at inappropriate times. Maybe if she showed some more respect to others, she would be a nice person to be be friends with, however there is conflict evident between her mother because sometimes she doesn’t understand how to help Anne with her feelings and emotions.

Jews were captured and sent to a concentration camp.
Margot and Mrs. Frank start to talk about the war and how it is affecting the world. Mrs. Frank is very surprised when Margot said,”Sometimes I wish the end would come…whatever it is.” Mrs.Frank responds,” You should be ashamed of yourself! Talking that way! Think how lucky we are! Think of the thousands of people in concentration camps.” What Margot means is that she wants the hiding to end because she doesn’t like the fact that she can not go anywhere and has not gone outside for months. Mrs.Frank tries to bring sense to Margot by saying how they are fortunate enough to escape from being captured and sent to their deaths along with thousands of innocent people. Mrs. Frank does not know why Margot would think such a thing because she is usually thankful for everything she has. I feel that Margot does not want to be stuck hiding for any longer because she has been in the same place with the same people for months. Margot wants the end to come no matter what it is as long as it is different than what she is doing. The tension between Margot and Mrs. Frank increased because Mrs. Frank is not used to the the new ideas Margot is thinking.
