Quotes:
From "Anne Frank: The Whole Story" (2001)
Anne Frank: When we're liberated I'm going to get all the paper I can find and start my stories over again. Did I tell you I was working on a novel?
Peter van Pels: No. I don't think so.
Anne Frank: Well I was. I didn't know how to finish it but now I do. I can't wait to get started again. It's going to be a romance, but not sentimental, mind you. I've grown too old for that. Do you remember how you told me once, how you were ashamed of being Jewish?
Peter van Pels: Mm-hmm. The chosen people. Chosen for what? This?
Anne Frank: We've suffered before and it's only made us stronger. One day people will look up to us.
Peter van Pels: If there are any of us left.
Anne Frank: I used to take so much for granted, like the sky. Do you see those stars? We had a club called The Little Dipper once. Jacque, Hannah, Sanne, and me, one star for each of us.
Peter van Pels: And which one were you?
Anne Frank: That one.
[Anne points to a star]
