She comes from a wealthy family and has spent most of her life in Germany. In terms of her mothering skills, she is somewhat of a disappointment to Anne, who would prefer her to be more affectionate and accepting. A peacemaker, she is the voice of reason during adult fights in the annex. After the residents are captured and her daughters are sent to the Belsen camp, she is left to die at Auschwitz. Anne's relationship with mother is strained. She feels constantly judged unfairly by her and describes little nurturing or affection. Of course Anne is a teenage girl who, in many ways, is responsible for how her relationships are formed.
