ROOM PETER VAN PELS

At the start of the hiding period Anne describes Peter in her diary as an ‘oaf’ and a ‘dope’. But later, her view of Peter changed. They spent more time together talking in his room and they fell in love… First watch the film ‘Love in the Secret Annex’.

Peter’s room had stairs to the attic of the annex. Anne loved to go there because she could look out through the attic window. The attic was the only place in the Secret Annex where the window was not covered. In the rest of the Secret Annex, curtains were hanging in front of the windows during the day, and at sunset the windows were blacked out with panels of dark fabric. The Nazis had everyone black out their windows, to make sure that the streets were pitch-dark, and the Allied bombers would have difficulty finding their way in the dark.
