I feel that this is important to the story because if they would have been caught or heard by the roober the story would have changed a lot. Also this was the first time that they really needed to be quiet on the spot unexpectedly.
Dussel vs Anne
This is a major conflict in the story because it is the first major argument between Dussel and Anne. In this conflict Anne and Dussel are fighting over a table that Anne wants to use for writing.
This conflict lead to all the other conflicts as it is what the war was about, if this didn't happen then this story would most likely not have been written.
