Anne Frank’s Diary Entry about her birthday.
Sunday, June 14, 1942
I hope I will be able to
confide everything to you(the diary), as I have never been able to confide in
anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.
I’ll begin from the
moment I got you, the moment I saw you lying on the table among my other
birthday presents. (I went along when you were bought, but that doesn’t count.)
On Friday, June 12, I
was awake at six o’ clock, which isn’t surprising, since it was my birthday.
But I’m not allowed to get up at that hour, so I had to control my curiosity
until quarter to seven. When I couldn’t wait any longer, I went to the dining
room, where Moortje (the cat) welcomed me by rubbing against my legs.
A little after seven I
went to Dad and Mom and then to the living room to open my presents, and you
were the first thing I saw, maybe one of my nicest presents. Then a bouquet of
roses, some peonies and a potted plant. From Dad and Mom, I got a blue blouse,
a game, a bottle of grape juice, a puzzle, a jar of cold cream and a gift
certificate for two books. I got another book as well, Camera Obscura (but my
sister Margot already has it, so I exchanged mine for something else), a
platter of homemade cookies (which I made myself, of course, since I’ve become
quite an expert at baking cookies), lots of candy and a strawberry tart from
Then Hanneli my
classmate came to pick me up, and we went to school. During recess I passed out
cookies to my teachers and my class, and then it was time to get back to work.
As it was my birthday, I got to decide which game my classmates would play, and
I chose volleyball. Afterward they all danced around me in a circle and sang
