Mr. Frank.

Mr. Frank?

Kraler.

Mr. Kraler.

Miep.

My good friends.

It is so good

to see you home.

We had heard nothing.

I'm alone.

You must come

home with us...

...and rest now.

- You must stay with us. No,

I can't stay in Amsterdam.

Mr. Frank, this

is your home.

- Amsterdam is your home.

- It has too many memories.

Everywhere there's

something, Miep. Everywhere.

Even seeing you

and Mr. Kraler...

I shouldn't talk to you

like this, after all you did.

Why, we'd do it again.

Everything's

gone. The book...

They took everything,

except some papers.

We saved your

letters and papers.

Please burn them.

Burn everything.

I told her...

...if I got back here,

I'd find her book.

Anne's diary?

It's where she left it.

"The 9th of July, 1942."

1942. Is it

possible, Miep?

Only three years ago?

"Dear Diary, since you and

I are to be great friends...

...I will start by telling

you all about myself.

My name is Anne Frank.

I am 13 years old.

I was born in Germany, but

since my family is Jewish...

...we emigrated to Holland

when Hitler came to power.

Things went well for us until the

war came and the German occupation.

Then things got very

bad for the Jews."

You could not do this

and you could not do that.

We had to wear

yellow stars.

I had to turn in my bike.

I couldn 't go to a

Dutch school anymore.

I couldn 't go to the movies

or ride in an automobile...

... or even

on a streetcar.

And a million

other things.

But somehow, we children

still managed to have fun.

This morning, Father

woke me at 5:
00...

... and told me to

hurry and get dressed.

We were going into hiding.

I was to put on as

many clothes as I could.

It would look too suspicious if

we walked along carrying suitcases.

We were going

to disappear...

... vanish into thin air.

I'm living a

great adventure.

Three other people were coming

in with us. Father knew them.

We had never met them.

- Something's happened.

They had a 3 mile walk.

Mother.

- They've been arrested, I know.

Will you stop that?

- Mother. Father.

We're here.

You see?

Mr. Van Daan. Hello.

- Mrs. Van Daan.

- Mr. Frank.

Peter. There were too many

Green Police on the streets.

We took the long way around.

Did you introduce yourself?

My daughter Anne.

My wife, Edith.

Margot. Mr. And

Mrs. Van Daan.

Oh, and this is

our son, Peter.

So, now, please let us take

off some of these clothes.

Good morning. Good

morning, Mr. Kraler.

Morning, Mr. Kraler.

- Mr. Frank.

You're all here.

That is good.

- We hoped to have everything in order.

- Please, don't even think of it.

We'll have leisure to

arrange everything ourselves.

- Brought sandwiches for lunch.

- Thank you, Miep.

The canned goods are here,

and your beans and potatoes.

- I'll get you ration books this afternoon.

- Ration books?

If they see our names on ration

books, they'll know we're here.

Don't worry. It won't be

your names that'll be on them.

Father! The Westertoren!

- Anne! No!

You must never touch

a curtain. Never.

No one must ever touch

a curtain, day or night.

If someone on the streets should

look up or someone should see...

...we would be lost. Remember,

it's not only our lives at stake...

...but Miep's

and Mr. Kraler's.

- You have 13 minutes to

get settled. Thank you.

Miep or I will be up each day

to bring you food and news.

Come, Miep, we must go.

- Goodbye.

Goodbye, Mr. Kraler.

How can we thank you?

I never thought I'd live to see

the day when a man like Mr. Frank...

...would have to go into

hiding. When you think of it...

Goodbye. Thank
