Symbol 1- A House
I picked a house because he is the owner of the hide out. He is also the man of the house and keeps everything in line. In the book when they hear the racket of the thief, Mr. Frank takes charge and goes to check it out. He finds they stole the radio and the cash box (pg. 407). In the book he also takes charge when Anne is having nightmares. He takes charge by calming her down and everyone else to (pg.398).

Perseverance will take you far in life. They persevere every day when they are in the attic. They have to preserver to survive in their types of living conditions. Anne says “what good does it do for us to think about misery when we are only kids (pg. 416). Anne is persevering by looking past the misery. Anne is also persevering by giving gifts to everyone (pg. 402-405). She is joyful through all the hard times.
Hate can get in the way of relationships. When the people get in arguments in the attic it rips apart their relationships. Peter calls Anne Mrs. Quack Quack (pg. 383). This makes Anne mad and they are angry at each other for a couple days. Anne spills her glass of milk on Mrs. Van Daans fur coat and they get all upset over it (pg. 388). They got a feeling of hate for each other and it weaken their relationship.
