And when Mr. Drussel come to live with them, it starts more of the fight because Mr. Drussel is arrogant person. Soon after all that, a thief breaks into the office below and they all try to be quiet but a lamp fell and it scares the thief but makes the thief knows someone lives up there. It scares everyone more.

After living the annex for 2 years, the phone downstairs ring and makes everyone confused. But Mr. Drussel thinks its Miep trying to contact them so he run downstairs but he’s too late because the ringing stops and the green police shows up and starts banging down the door. They calmly pack up their things, and wait for the green police to take them away to the concentration camp.

The green police finally get in and gives them time to pack up whatever they can carry on their person, and leave.
