       patience than people." (June 20, 1942.)
           o   Why did Anne think she could confide more in her diary than in people.
   2. Anne often worried about her Jewish friends. On November 27, 1943, Anne described her
      dream about her friend Hanneli Goslar.
           o   What do you think this dream was about? Why was the dream so disturbing for Anne?
