Mr.Frank walks to the upstairs rooms carrying a rucksack. He moves slowly around the room and picks up a scarf, which he puts around his neck. As he bends down to pick up a glove, he breaks down.
Hearing Mr.Frank cry, Miep Gies comes up the stairs, asking if he is all right and begging him not to stay up in the rooms all day. Mr. Frank that he is leaving Amsterdam though he dont know where hes going. Soon as hes about to leave, Miep gives him papers....
Mr.frank says to burn them. All of them. Miep has saved a diary that his daughter Anne kept during that time. Mr.Frank begins reading the diary, and the play follows Anne's thoughts and actions, including those of the others hiding in the secret annex.
The Franks and another Jewish family try to live peacefully in a small rooms, hidden behind a bookcase in Mr.Frank's office in Amsterdam. They have to hide from the Nazis who are killing Jewish citizens during the Holocaust. The family members may not make noise or leave the annex.
As reading the diary, Mr.Frank becomes emotional. Anne's overall view on her time spent in the annex has clearly affected him in many ways.
He tells Miep that, after they were found, they were deported to concentration camps. Mr.Frank is the only survivor of the eight people that lived in the annex.
