Ring! Ring! Ring! School was over! The sky was a light blue, the sun was shining brightly. It was going great! Smiling, I ran home to see my Mother, Father, and sister, Margot, all huddled together near the kitchen table. Recently, we had to move furniture around and give some of them to the Germans.
Mother had a worried look on her face, along with my sister. Father solemnly looked at me as I entered the room. I rushed over there quickly. “It’s the war, Anne. It’s the war, “ Mother said. My smile fell off my face.
I looked at what my mother was holding. She was holding my blouse, my favorite blouse, and on it, was a yellow star. Then, I noticed that on each of the clothes that my family was wearing, was a yellow star, like the one on my blouse. My head fell and stared at the floor.
For the next few days, we converted Father’s office into a little, secret hideout, which we named the Secret Annex. I didn’t like the sound of this war, it was almost my birthday. I hope this will end soon.
On the day of my birthday, in The Secret Annex, I received something small, but big to the world.
14 June 1942: “I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.”-Anne
