Storyboard Text

  • Mr. Kleiman Poor Condition
  • Money Problems
  • 325 Guilders for a Coat!
  • Mr. Kleiman isn't doing very well from what Anne is saying. She wrote "Mr. Kleiman is out again; his stomach won't give him a moment's peace. He doesn't even know whether it's stopped bleeding. He came to tell us he wasn't feeling well"
  • A Loud Fight Over Money
  • Money is a problem in the annex as Anne tells us "Mr. and Mrs. van D. have had more raging battles. The reason is simple: they're broke. The reason is simple: they're broke." It seems that Anne is disliking all the fights that are going on.
  • Anne Needs to eat!
  • "Some time ago Mr. Kleiman was talking about a furrier he knows. This gave Mr. van D. the idea of selling his wife's fur coat...Mrs. van D. got 325 guilders for it, an enormous amount." This tells that some good is happen for the Van D.
  • Anne Mental State
  • Unfortunately the good didn't last long as mis. van .d wanted to keep the money "She wanted to keep the money herself to buy new clothes after the war...You can't imagine the screaming, shouting, stamping of feet and swearing that went on. It was terrifying. My family stood holding its breath at the bottom of the stairs" You can tell Anne can remember this Memory very well meaning this memory is one she couldnt get out of her head.
  • Anne wrote "All the bickering, tears and nervous tension have become such a stress... I'm doing fine, except I've got no appetite. I keep hearing: "Goodness, you look awful!"...they're plying me with dextrose, cod-liver oil, brewer's yeast and calcium. Anne does not seem to be able to deal with all the stress in her life.
  • In the last part in Anne's entry "I fall into my bed at night crying and thanking my lucky stars that I have half an hour to myself...on Sundays: that's when I really feel miserable. The atmosphere is stifling, sluggish, leaden. Outside, you don't hear a single bird... 'Let me out, where there's fresh air and laughter!' a voice within me cries." This really shows how Anne isn't making it through the hard times.
