With tension rising in the annex, fighting increases. Another terrible quarrel occurs between Mr. and Mrs. van Daan, which upsets Anne tremendously. On September 29, she writes, “What kind of explosion is hanging over us now? If only I wasn’t mixed up so much with all these rows! If I could get away!” She, however, cannot escape and must begin to endure the arguments that now flare between Mr. van Daan and Dussel.

Anne, hoping to ignore the arguments, buries herself in her books.
