Overview

For almost fifty years, Anne Frank's diary has moved millions with its testament to the human spirit's indestructibility, but readers have never seen the full text of this beloved book—until now. This new translation, performed by Winona Ryder, restores nearly one third of Anne's entries, excised by her father in previous editions, revealing her burgeoning sexuality, her stormy relationship with her mother, and more.

Editorial Reviews

Eleanor Roosevelt
This is one of the wisest and most moving commentaries on war and its impact on human beings that I have ever read.
New York Herald Tribune
It is a poignant, heartbreaking yet somehow heartwarming story, fresh with the dew of adolescence.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This startling new edition of Dutch Jewish teenager Anne Frank's classic diary-written in an Amsterdam warehouse, where for two years she hid from the Nazis with her family and friends-contains approximately 30% more material than the original 1947 edition. It completely revises our understanding of one of the most moving and eloquent documents of the Holocaust. The Anne we meet here is much more sarcastic, rebellious and vulnerable than the sensitive diarist beloved by millions. She rages at her mother, Edith, smolders with jealous resentment toward her sister, Margot, and unleashes acid comments at her roommates. Expanded entries provide a fuller picture of the tensions and quarrels among the eight people in hiding. Anne, who died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in March 1945, three months before her 16th birthday, candidly discusses her awakening sexuality in entries that were omitted from the 1947 edition by her father, Otto, the only one of the eight to survive the death camps. He died in 1980. This crisp, stunning translation provides an unvarnished picture of life in the ``secret annex.'' In the end, Anne's teen angst pales beside her profound insights, her self-discovery and her unbroken faith in good triumphing over evil. Photos not seen by PW. (Mar.)
Library Journal
This new translation of Frank's famous diary includes material about her emerging sexuality and her relationship with her mother that was originally excised by Frank's father, the only family member to survive the Holocaust.
Booknews
**** A revision of this great document of WWII, considerably expanding the extraordinarily popular work originally published in 1947. A couple dozen entries have been added. Much of the '95 edition is based upon the b version written when Anne was about 15. The price suggests a very large royalty is due the Anne Frank Foundation, owner of all rights. In four months the book is in its sixth printing. Cited in BCL3. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Meyer Levin
There is anguish in the thought of how much creative power, how much creative power, how much sheer beauty of living, was cut off from genocide. But through her diary Anne goes on living. From Holland to France, to Italy, Spain. The Germans too have published her book. And now she comes to America. Surely she will be widely loved, for this wise and wonderful young girl brings back a poignant delight in the human spirit.-- Books of the Century, New York Times review 1952

Ann Frank is the best book that you could ever read. Knowing that this has actually happened to a girl and that she was the one who wrote all of these events down in a diary. This book is thrilling yet scary. Just thinking what would you have done if all of the stuff that she went through had happened to you?! If you don't find it interesting try putting yourself as if it were you going through all of that.

When I read this book(diary) I thought that it was a really great story. Its not boring but it is interesting because its reveling a whole life of this girl who at the end dies. It tells of how cruly the world was when she was alive. This book should capture the readers attension in a second. We should feel lucky that the world has change and that (who ever agrees with me) we should always keep this story close to our heart.

This is a book that I would recommend reader to read. This book talks about a young jewish girl who was only 14 years old. Her family alone with other people where froced into hiding from the nazi. She talks about how they lived day to day with out talking to each other or not being able to go outside and play because of her religion. It's not the same for us to go through what she did. We have all our rights when her rights were taken away from her. Even through she went thew this type of treat she still forgave the people who tried to wipe out her human race out.

I thought the book was wonderful. She expressed herself so openly, and I learned a little more about the history of the Jews.

i thought this book was utterly boring and confusing. i had to read this for a class nad usually i love to read but i had so much trouble following this book. i respect ann frank and her history and the history of the holocaust and its horrible that she died like she did but i couldn't stand her diary.
