  • "There's nothing  else to see. With all this    gray around us, it's    hard to remember we  live in a world of           color!" (Nielsen, p.22)
  • "I'm so sorry,   Anna. It must-" (Nielsen, p.65)
  • "Don't you dare apologize!      Your family knew what Peter  was going to do. Why didn't    you stop him? Why didn't you  tell me?" (Nielsen, p.65)
  • Hey, I noticed that Fritz  isn't always here to help. I thought I  may help with the garden, you  could really use it. I really want to make amends!
  • Perhaps I'll get more info to save my family from the Stasi
  • Anna's Ulterior Motive

  • I need to get    rid of this dirt before anyone notice
  • "Gerta? What are you doing?"(Nielsen, p. 223)
  • Anna and Gerta are walking to school.This is the August  1965 about 4 years after the Berlin wall has been built. Gerta and Anna live on the East side of the wall, where the   Communist control everything.  Gerta can't help but think about freedom on the other side of the wall. Anna, on the other hand, is concern about drawing attention to them  selves, and the repercussions from the Stasi. 
  • "Nothing              Important" (Nielsen, p.223)
  • If I lay the wall out flat...1..2..3...
  •  Gerta found out the night before from her brother Fritz that Peter was  going to try to escape. Peter is Anna's brother. Peter was caught and killed by the Stasi. This led the Stasi to question Anna's family, once again  raising Anna's fear of the Stasi.
  • "You can talk to me, but I'm not sure who I'm talking back to. Am I talking to the Stasi right now?" (Nielsen, p. 272)
  • OH NO!! She saw me leave the building
  • "Can we talk?" (Nielsen, p.272)
  • Gerta is hiding a secret and Anna is here to find it. After Peter was arrested and killed the Stasi came to Anna's family. They offered Anna's family a trade: "for the right kind of information, they would erase any files on our family, give us a fresh start."(Nielsen, p. 274) Of         course Anna's family agreed.
  • "You asked me to figure out why Peter wanted to leave. Well... we did." (Nielsen, p. 303)
  • Gerta goes to Anna's house appearing to make amends for their friendship, though she has a     different motive. She is trying to figure out how long the Death Strip is for the tunnel they are  building underneath it. While there Gerta notices a black pair of boots that has dirt from the garden, Anna did not wear those boots the day she was there making amends. Anna has been spying on Gerta and Fritz
  • Gerta's Ulterior Motive
  • Anna comes to tell Gerta that she knows that Fritz and her have been tunneling to the West. Anna will not tell the Stasi until Gerta leaves, but that is all she can do to protect her family. Wouldn't Gerta do the same?Gerta tries to convince Anna to come, to           honestly think about why Peter wanted to leave. Anna will not agree.
  • Finally, in the end, Anna and her family realize what it means to be free. Gerta's family and Anna's family find freedom in the West. Nielsen, Jennifer A. A Night Divided . NewYork: Scholastic Press, 2015.
