She dreams of Peter Wessel, imagining his cheek against hers, and notes that she has very vivid dreams. When she prays, she says, she prays for all "Jews and those in need."

Anne explains her longing for Peter Wessel by telling her diary the history of "myself and all my boy friends." She had childhood crushes, she explains, but none of them were serious until she fell in love with Peter Wessel, an older boy. She calls him her "helper" in the annex when she is going through tough times and thinks of him often. It helps her look more lightly on the adults' quarrels, which continue with regularity.
