On page 843 Anne changed from argumenting about trivial things to arguing about the future. For example, when she goes on a rant about Margot, Peter, and their futures and how this long time in hiding is lessening their chance. Anne “loses her cool” at the end of her conversation and storms off to her room. Anne does this because she has never gotten to have someone to talk to and let out her thoughts. After the argument Anne and Peter share their thoughts with one another and this really brings out Annes problems to Peter and releases some weight off of her shoulders after all this time.
Act 2, Scene 5. Q2:
After reading this play, it is important for students to continue to keep reading about Anne Frank because of many reasons. One reason for that is that the play did not give all the information possible. It is also important to read this through different point of views. For example, I think reading it from a Gestapo’s point of view would be very interesting. Also the play did not show what other countries were doing during this time and how they were trying to help. You could see Anne Frank’s journey and hardships in many different ways and I think that means a lot when reading a story.
Act 2, Scene 4. Q1:
I believe Mr. Frank made the right decision because it could have been the thief who heard the sounds and wanted to test if there was someone there after work hours. If someone had picked up the thief would have been sure that there were Jewish people in hiding up there. If he told the Nazi’s where they were hiding then they would reward him with money. After all, in the end of the story they find out it was the thief who told the Gestapo about the families in hiding. That goes to show that it could most certainly have been the thief that was calling that night.
Act 2, Scene 3. Q2:
Many were shocked to learn that Mr. Vann Daan was the one that was stealing the food. I would have reacted in a very bad way because I welcomed someone into my home and trusted them. I would have handled this situation by kicking them out because he was stealing the food and I would not be able to trust him no more. Mr. Van Daan was selfish by stealing the food and eating it because he is bigger and is not used to eating so little, while his son Peter is starving and moans from hunger every night. I would never want to see Mr. Van Daan again because what he did was just wrong.
Act 2,Scene 2. Q2:
At one point in the conversation Peter tells Anne that he has no friends and that he does not need friends. I do agree that you do not need friends to be happy. You do not need to have friends to be happy, all you need to be happy in life is family. In life you can be lonely and still be happy because you can make yourself happy by playing games that only requires one person.
If you don't have any friends you can still be happy by playing video games. This is how I agree with Peter, you do not need friends to be happy.
Act 2, Scene 1. Q2: In scene one, Anne has changed from arguing to trivial matters. For example in the argument Anne has stated that “You grownups have had your chance! But look at us...If we begin thinking of all the horror in the world, we are lost! Were trying to hold onto some kind of ideals.. When everything…. ideals, hopes.. everything, are being destroyed”! Anne has went to arguing to talking about how everything is being destroyed. Anne has changed from thinking everything is always ok to everything being destroyed. She changed from being up spirit to all hopes being destroyed. Anne has gone from always arguing about everything to talking about what is wrong.
