Auguste van Pels, Peter's mother, is a great talker and enjoys a good laugh, but as the months in hiding drag on, she, like Edith Frank, becomes increasingly despondent and sombre.
''"You ought to have been in our home, we were properly brought up. It's absurd that Anne's so frightfully spoiled. I wouldn't put it up with it if Anne were my daughter"
Auguste van Pels dies somewhere in Germany or Czechoslovakia, between April 9th and May 8th 1945. While being deported to Theresienstadt, guards throw her in front of the train.
