Anne Frank Act 2 p. 956 1a. Mr. Kraler says that one of his workers may suspect that the Franks are hiding in the Annex. 1b. This hints that the Annex residents will be discovered.
p. 956 2a. Act II begins in January 1944 and ends with Mr. Frank’s visit in November 1945. 2b. The characters are thinner and more tense than in Act 1. Mrs. Frank lashed out at Mr. Van Daan for stealing food. 2c. (Many possible answers) As they are eating cake, Anne talks about the destruction of her ideals and hopes. (She has hints of negativity).
p. 956 #3 3a. She preserved her dignity by remaining optimistic, by creating a friendship with Peter, by insisting on preserving traditions, and by using her diary as a outlet for her fears, instead of attacking others. 3b. She believes that similarities matter most – that all people have good in them. Specific examples – Miep and Mr. Kraler. 3c. Mr. Frank is moved by his daughter’s faith that “people are really good at heart” – (a little ironic that she says this positive statement after the death of herself and most of her family – she wanted to be more than just herself)
