The radio not only provided the members of the annex with a much needed diversion, it also allowed them to stay connect to the world and the war effort through the BBC broadcasts.

Sunday evening everyone, except Pim and me, was clustered around the radio, listening to the "Immortal Music of the German Masters."

There was a beautil ful Mozart concert on the radio from six to seven-fifteen; I especially enjoyed the Kleine Nachtmusik.

All over the country people are trying to get hold of an old radio that they can hand over instead of their "morale booster." It's true: as the reports from outside grow worse and worse, the radio, with its wondrous voice, helps us not to lose heart and to keep telling ourselves, "Cheer up, keep your spirits high, things are bound to get better!"

The people who come from outside bring us a lot of news that later proves to be untrue; however, up to now our radio has never lied.
