Overview

Anne Frank’s extraordinary diary, written in the Amsterdam attic where she and her family hid from the Nazis for two years, has become a world classic and a timeless testament to the human spirit. Now, in a new edition enriched by many passages originally withheld by her father, we meet an Anne more real, more human, and more vital than ever. 
           
Here she is first and foremost a teenage girl—stubbornly honest, touchingly vulnerable, in love with life. She imparts her deeply secret world of soul-searching and hungering for affection, rebellious clashes with her mother, romance and newly discovered sexuality, and wry, candid observations of her companions. Facing hunger, fear of discovery and death, and the petty frustrations of such confined quarters, Anne writes with adult wisdom and views beyond her years. Her story is that of every teenager, lived out in conditions few teenagers have ever known.

Meet the Author

Annelies Marie Frank was born on June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Anne and her family were persecuted alongside millions of Jews prior to and during World War II for their faith.  It was during this period on her 13th birthday that Anne recieved a diary in which she wrote her life story. Forced to flee their home and go into hiding, the Frank family was eventually seperated, with Anne and her sister Margot being placed in Bergen-Belsen. In 1945, years after their initial seperation, it was discovered that both Anne and her sister were killed, leaving only her beloved diary behind.

My 8th grade literature class watched a video of the life of Anne Frank. After the video, I was so interested in the video about her life, I decided to read the book. So as soon as school let out, I went to the library and checked out, 'Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl'. I was at first wondering if I would like it but I looked past that and began to read it. So as I got further and further into the book, I realized how hard life was for her. And not just her but her whole family and friends and the Jewish population. There were some things in the book that I never knew. I never knew that Hitler had brown hair and brown eyes when he requested that all who lived in Germany had blonde hair and blue eyes! I never knew that so much hatred could be in one person before. I felt as though I was Anne Frank and that I was there. It seemed very frightening not knowing if it will be your last day in your home, let alone your life! I liked this book and I would recommend it to any girl who likes to go back in time and feel as though you are reliving history through the eyes of a young girl.

This book is beautiful. When I was readingthis it made me cry and feel bed. I already read 'number the stars', and 'Daniels Story' I felt so bad for the Jewish People.

Anne Franks diary is a very inspiring story of a 13 year old sent off to hiding during the time the Natzi's were taking over Europe. Anne's diary is a classic you'll never forget!

This book is very imformative when it comes to learning about world war 2. But when it comes to her life it is very dull because what do you have to do if you are locked up so that means that what she writes is not much and is not exciting.
