Meip, the founder of the office, could only set foot outside the hiding place. Everyone else didn't dare set foot out unless of an emergency. It was often boring around their new home. Anne's father gave Anne her diary for her thirteenth birthday. She loved expressing her thoughts in the diary, it was like she could say anything about anyone and no one would know about it. She wrote in an early entry: "I hope that you will be great support and comfort to me." When she started the diary, she was still attending the Jewish Secondary School. On her birthday, June, 14, she opened presents: "The first to greet me was you, possibly the nicest of all," she writes about a new friend she has met. Anne depicts the nightmare reality of eight persons crowded into tiny living quarters, in fear of being discovered, but also her dreams, hopes and feelings of a young girl on the verge of womanhood. One of Anne's famous quotes stated: "I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are still truly good at heart . . . " But there were moments of doubt, impatience and rage: "I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, Misery and death."

Otto Frank was a successful businessman. In Anne's eyes her dad was the only one who cared about her. Anne's mother, Edith Hollander, cared about Anne just as much as her father, her mother claimed, but Anne thought differently.

Margot was the quiet sister, the one who always minded her business and did what the grownups said. Anne sometimes envied her older sister, after all her quietness was attractive. Peter was the only teenage boy in the hideout. Anne soon started to like him. Peter's first reaction of Anne was, she's annoying, she longs for attention, and she talks so much, she sounded like a duck. They got in fights often and he would say: "quack, quack, quack." This really ticked Anne off, but as the weeks went by Anne and Peter fell in love. They began talking to each other on a daily base. Peter's mother Mrs. Vann Dann often teased Peter by saying that Anne was his "little girlfriend." As their relationship grew Peter and Anne started to spend more and more t...
