Peter van Daan
I chose a heart to represent Peter because he is a caring and likeable. An example of Peter being caring was when he told Anne if she ever needed a place to go, she could go into his room. Peter was kind of like a counselor to Anne in my opinion. He helped her out by talking to her and being nice. They could tell each other basically anything. Another example of him being caring is the relationship between him and his cat Mouschi. He was always craign caring for the cat by giving it small portions of his food. Everyone in the annex likes Peter because he keeps to himself unless he is talking to Anne. Peter Van Daan is a caring and likeable boy.
I chose the sword to represent Peter because he is brave. An example of Peter being brave is when he volunteered to o check out what was happening outside the annex. They heard a noise outside the annex and Mr. Frank said that he was going to check it out. Peter said that he would. That is really brave, especially in those times. A few other times when Peter was brave was when he would “go after” Mr. Dussel. That is brave because Dussel is older than Peter.
The second theme is that you can get through anything with friends and family. An example of this is Anne and Peter. Through the war they were able to talk to each other about anything. I think that this helped because it allowed them to let out anything that was bothering or distracting them. Another example is just the Frank family. They stuck together and always made sure everyone had what they needed. Friends and family helped them get through the war.
