Summary of From the Diary of Anne Frank

—by Anne Frank

Anne’s Need to Write a Diary

Anne Frank, a thirteen year old girl, was gifted a diary by her father. In her first entry, she expressed her desire to confide everything to the diary. Anne considered the diary to be a real friend with whom she could share all her secrets. She made it her best friend and called her ‘Kitty’.

Anne’s Childhood and Family

Anne felt that a brief sketch of her family and life so far was necessary. Anne called her father, Otto Frank the most adorable father. Her mother name was Edith Hollander Frank. She further told that her elder sister, Margot was born in 1926 and she herself was born on 12th June, 1929. Her parents emigrated to Holland in 1933. Anne had great love for her grandmother. Her grandmother died in January 1942. So Anne lit a candle in her memory on her own birthday in June.

Anne’s School and her views about Teachers

After explaining about her life, Anne started her diary entry for 20th June, 1942. She started by writing about her day in the school when the teachers were going to tell the result. Anne was a good student and had a good relationship with all the teachers except Mr Keesing, who taught her Maths. He was always annoyed by her talkative nature.

Anne’s Talkative Nature and Punishment

He used to give her extra homework as punishment. He asked her to write an essay on the topic ‘A Chatterbox’. She wrote the essay in three pages for her satisfaction. She defined being a chatterbox a feature of a student and also mentioned that she inherited this trait from her mother who was also very talkative. Mr Keesing read the essay in the class and laughed at it. When she was caught again talking by Mr Keesing, he gave her another essay as a punishment on the topic ‘An Incorrigible Chatterbox’. He punished her again asked to write an essay on ‘Quack, Quack, Quack, Said Mistress Chatterbox’.

Anne Mock Mr Keesing Amusingly

Anne wanted to write something interesting and different this time. So, with the help of her friend Sanne who was good at poetry, she wrote the essay in verse. The poem was about three baby ducklings of a father swan and a mother duck. The father swan bit the ducklings until they died because they quacked too much. Mr Keesing took the joke in the right way. He read the poem in the class as well as in other classes. Since then, Anne was allowed to talk and had not been assigned any extra homework.
