He was stealing the bread” (Frank, 505) Even though everyone in hiding had very little food, and they all had to make sacrifices, especially on the amount of food, Mr. VaanDaan was still very selfish. If Mr. VaanDaan is selfish, and he is on the same side as the Franks, imagine what the horrible people in the world would do. Another example of people being selfish is when Mrs. Frank says to Mrs..VaanDann “Your a mother, yet you sacrifice your child to this man.” Frank (504) Even though Peter’s father was being selfish, Mrs. VaanDaan, Peter’s mother stood up for her husband.
