Mr, Kraler makes a distinction between purchasing ration books illegally and assisting the many hiding in Amsterdam who are hiding and hungry.

Mr. Kraler. This isn’t the black market, Mrs. Frank. This is what we call the white market . . . helping all of the hundreds and hundreds who are hiding out in Amsterdam.
