Why or why not?
2. The climax of a play is its moment of greatest tension, the point at
which the main conflict is about to be resolved. What is this play’s
climax? How did you feel at that moment?
3. In Act One, Scene 4, Mr. Frank tells Anne, “You must build your
own character.” Has Anne done this by the end of the play? Explain.
4. What do you think is the main conflict in the play? Is it the conflict
between the occupants of the Secret Annex and the Nazis, or is it
something else?
5. During the crisis in Act Two, Scene 3, Mr. Frank says, “We don’t
need the Nazis to destroy us. We’re destroying ourselves.” How
would you describe the forces destroying the characters from
inside? Do you think, given their desperate situation, that such
behavior was inevitable?
6. On page 429, Anne says, “I want to go on living even after my
death.” How has her wish come true?
7. Which of the resources that accompany the play—the maps,
Anne’s diary entries, the historical photographs, the time line—did
you find most helpful? Are there other resources you think should
have been included? Explain your answers.
Page 436, cont.
What do you think this play reveals about our need for freedom? about the power
of love? about courage and hope? about good and evil? In your answers, consider
how the play’s themes relate to the themes of another work, such as Ann Petry’s
story about Harriet Tubman (page 143).
• 9. Before The Diary of Anne Frank was first performed, Otto Frank wrote in a letter
to the actor who would portray him, “Please don’t play me as a ‘hero.’… Nothing
happened to me that did not happen to thousands upon thousands of other
people.” Do you see anyone in the play as a hero? In your answer, cite the qualities
or actions that you think make someone a hero.
• 10. The play’s version of events differs in many ways from what actually happened.
For example:
• In real life, Anne was given the diary as a present for her thirteenth birthday,
several weeks before her family went into hiding.
• The Frank family moved into the Secret Annex a week before the Van Daan family
did.
• Margot was sixteen, not eighteen, when the Franks went into hiding.
• The occupants of the Secret Annex often went down to the lower floors of the
office building after working hours.
• There is no evidence in Anne’s diary that Mr. Van Daan stole food.
• 11. Why might the writers have chosen to change or invent these details? Do you
think it’s acceptable for writers to change details in works based on real people and
real events? Discuss your responses.
