Diary of Anne Frank/from 12 December 1943 to 17 April 1944/"Secret
Annexe"/A'dam C./In part letters to "Kitty."
|1||22 Dec 1943 (first entry)|
24 Dec 1943 (CE p. 145 has photo of this page)|
27 Dec 1944: pasted in Christmas package decorations from her first Christmas celebration, (CE p. 434 has photo of them)|
|15||6 Jan 1944: pasted sheet in to expand the space to write in, making pages 15a and 15b. The somewhat famous girl-girl entry (Venus, Jacques). On the added sheet she writes of how she's not in love with Peter, just talks to him.|
15 and 19 Jan 1944 (CE p. 146 has photo of these pages)|
|50-1||8 Feb 1944: at the family's request, Anne's "representation of her parents' marriage" are omitted. (Approximately 2.5 pages.) I assume that re-writes of these may be among the excerpts revealed in 1998. See also the note on page 482 of The Critical Edition.|
|126||20 March 1944: briefly continued here, after p. 123, skipping a sheet, then crossing out what she had started and continuing her entry on page 124 as usual.|
|130-1||20 and 22 March 1944 (CE p. 147 has photo of these pages)|
23 March 1944: after being confronted by Peter (who had thought they'd
had a joke on him), she writes about it. Upset, she signs
"Mary Anne Frank" (her middle name was Marie).
(CE p. 560 has photo of this page.)|
|140||24 March 1944: after this page, she skipped a sheet, continuing on page 143.|
|141||24 March 1944: It appears that she put a note to tell the reader to go to the next sheet first. She continues writing on this page after filling page 143.|
|142||Just puts a dash here.|
|143||(Continued from page 140, then continues on back to p. 141.)|
|144||(Continues from page 141.)|
|191||11 April 1944: pasted in note about the 9 April break in. This is in pencil and not in Anne's handwriting. It outlines what to be sure to tell Kleiman in a (risky) phone call.|
|203||17 April 1944 (last page of third diary)|
|37 pages were used for Cady's Life. I don't know if Cady's Life was located at the end. I only illustrated it that way.|
| ||(The question mark is only because it is possible that some pages were torn out for non-diary use.)|
