Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has since become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the “Secret Annex” of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death. In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short.Praise for The Diary of a Young Girl“A truly remarkable book.”—The New York Times“One of the most moving personal documents to come out of World War II.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer“There may be no better way to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II than to reread The Diary of a Young Girl, a testament to an indestructible nobility of spirit in the face of pure evil.”—Chicago Tribune“The single most compelling personal account of the Holocaust . . . remains astonishing and excruciating.”—The New York Times Book Review“How brilliantly Anne Frank captures the self-conscious alienation and naïve self-absorption of adolescence.”—Newsday

People who use the term Nazi loosely should be forced to read this book and watch the films of the liberation of the camps and the survivors and stacks of dead. Technically, it is very 13 year old girl. Strategically, it is masterful. I made sure all my children and grandchildren and not just for the humanity but for the callous way certain people term others NAZIs ……. We need to understand just how bad true nazis were. This tomb helps.
This is not the same Diary of Anne Frank I read as a youth. It “includes previously unpublished material” so beware with your own children.
I read this book in middle school and remembered really liking it. Also for those interested this IS the definitive edition. In the Afterword or Index It describes how the book was published. Anne herself wrote two versions of the diary, she wrote one with the intention of publishing it (version B), the other more raw and personal I think (version A). So When Otto Frank looked to publish the book, he created a third version (Version C), this version censored some of Anne’s thought on her mom and I think it may have also censored the relationship with Peter. Otto had wanted this version (version D) to be published after his death due to feeling uncomfortable publishing unnecessary personal details.So this is the definitive text of Anne Frank’s diary. I would also recommend as a supplementary text “Anne Franks tales from the secret Annex”. It’s a short book that compiles the other things Anne wrote like short stories and other things about her.Now with that in mind. Let me give my personal opinion on the text, I believe this book is very good in terms of being a historical piece and first hand account of WW2 and the Nazis in not only Amsterdam but the world. Anne writes when Germany first attacked Russia and several other things that Winston Churchill or other official’s were talking about on the radio at the time. So is it interesting to read? If you’re really into WW2 in Europe and you enjoy studying these things, then Yes. It’s good to read.Personally I’m more interested in WW2 (and most history for that matter) in the East (like Japan, China, Russia, Asia overall) but I still find the Nazis and their history very interesting. This book was written when Anne was between the ages of 13-15 years old. It’s VERY repetitive and honestly best read in short amounts at a time If you really want to enjoy it.I’m actually currently reading a book written by a girl who was in Cambodia just as the Khmer rouge took over and won the revolution, This book details her perspective as a five year old and what she remembers (Along with the help of her siblings). To be fair, this book was written later and While it is a first hand account. It might be more inaccurate than the diary of Anne Frank. I would however say, this book presents information in a much more digestible way. This book isn’t the ramblings of an angsty teenage girl, It’s accounts on what she went through while still presenting an interesting narrative.Personally I would suggest only to people who are super into WW2I think if you want something more fun to read while still being very historical. You should the the book “First they killed my father” the book about the Khmer rouge.I guess it depends on what interests you more. Europe during WW2 or Asia (post WW2 to be fair) If you’re interested in WW2 with China and Japan I might suggest “The Rape of Nanking” I’ve yet to read the book though I’ve heard some of what happened in Nanking. It terms of brutality the Japanese were probably much more brutal. If you’re interested in concentration camps, read about Unit 731, essentially a concentration camp located in Manchruia, China.Anyway I’ll link the other Anne frank text and also the book “first they killed my father”. Maybe just read both and see what you think,Anne frank Tales from the secret Annexhttps://www.amazon.com/Anne-Franks-Tales-Secret-Annex/dp/0553586386/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?keywords=Anne+Frank%27s+Tales+from+the+Secret+Annex%3A+A+Collection+of+Her+Short+Stories%2C+Fables%2C+and+Lesse&qid=1638888273&sr=8-1-fkmr0First they killed my fatherhttps://www.amazon.com/First-They-Killed-Father-Remembers/dp/0060856262/ref=sr_1_1?crid=15VGEC8H433HE&keywords=first+they+killed+my+father&qid=1638888339&sprefix=first+the%2Caps%2C173&sr=8-1
Bought this to replace a long lost copy. The book is 100% amazing. However, the print is probably 8-9pt font which is edge to edge. Quite literally to the point you can either tear it apart to see words on the inside of the page or buy a different print. Sadly I got two copies, one to send as a gift, and both are awful.
I first read Anne Frank’s diary in high school and have made it a point to read it every year around the time of my birthday. Now I’m a middle-aged mom – it’s amazing how I “see” things differently as my life experience changes. Anne Frank’s diary capture the experience of how a distant event – the election of a psycopathic dictator – turns an ordinary, middle class life completely upside down. Anne’s diary entries, so real for their teenage angst and occasional temper tantrums, help us experience what it’s like to go from a member of the community to a hated, feared and hunted minority. It is breath-taking to see how fragile “reality” is and how anyone, because of their race, sexuality, gender, politics or other affiliations could become the next outcast at risk. Peace and democracy are fragile gifts which much be protected from anyone who tries to leverage hate and tribalism for the sake of amassing power.
I am horrified that I bought this version for my 12 year old son. Contains sexually explicit details of the female anatomy. This caught us completely by surprised and he is so embarrassed. Parents need to be aware of this!!
The Anne Frank Diary of a Young Girl book is not just about a young girl and most of her family whose fate was held in Hitler’s hands, and sent to “camps” with deplorable conditions. It is a heartbreaking story because we know the end of the story, but it’s the beginning and every thing leading up to the fate of the Frank family that shows the humanity. Anne was a 12-year-old girl, smart and loved her family, yet, she favored her father more. She had a rough relationship with her mother and sister. She couldn’t understand why she couldn’t connect with her mother and sister, though she tried. She started writing in a journal that she named “Kitty” so it was her sharing her feelings, and what was going on. After awhile it was not about talking to Kitty, but the surroundings and having to be quiet, hide, and still get word from the outside world. Darkened basements, warehouses, no light, hoarding and saving food, and some sneaking out to find out what was going on in the world. Who did they take? Did that person go to the camps to die, or somewhere else? It’s definitely un-put-downable! Anne writes in one of her entries, “I’ve learned one thing; you only get to know someone after a fight. Only then can you judge their true character.” (This book also has some family photos and sketches that Anne did). Anne Frank was born in 1929: Her parents were Edith and Otto Frank. She had an older sister, Margo. Otto was the only one who survived, and was determined for the world to see Anne’s words. At the end of the book, you find the information about the inhabitants of the Secret Annex and their real names. Edith died of starvation and exhaustion, Margo and Anne died of Typhus. No one ever knew who betrayed them. Anne Frank Diary of a Young Girl is a definite recommendation by Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews. This title is on a list of banned books.
Everything OK with my order, delivery and product. Very satisfied.
This is one of the most eye opeing books. I think it is brilliant for everyone to read and this book will widen your perspective.
Really good read.
I bought this book when I was 15 but I waited until I was 17 to read it. I didn’t force myself to wait two years, nor did I not want to read it, I just felt that reading Anne Frank’s diary is something that needs to be appreciated; to be felt.I had just read a couple of books set during WWII and around the topic of the Holocaust (‘The Book Thief’ and ‘The Boy in the Striped Pajamas’) and just totally felt it was time to read Anne Frank’s diary. And I am so glad I waited because I never would have got so much out of it if I had read it when I was younger and not in the right mindset to read it.Probably the most poignant thing about this book is not the fact that Anne is in hiding from the Nazis or in danger from being murdered, but that she is a normal teenage girl. She has all the feelings, the thoughts, the emotions that all teenagers – and I at the time of reading – feel so strongly at that age. Whilst reading it you can feel Anne grow up and come of age, and the way her feelings grow and mature as she ages. It is literally the exact same thing I felt during my teenage years. In fact, I felt so similar to Anne I could almost have been reading my own diary – apart from the rather focal Nazi part – and this is what affected me most about the diary. She often refers to “after the war” or “when I am a mother” or “when I have my own house”, and these were the things I found particularly heartbreaking because they are things all teenage girls yearn for, and things that were stolen from her in the most cruel way.Of course, Anne Frank’s diary is incredibly important as a cultural record because it tells you so much detail about actual life in Nazi Europe during the early 1940s, and that is history you cannot get from statistics and dates. The Holocaust is so important to learn about because it was such a horror that can never be repeated again, and the story of such an innocent, full-of-life girl reminds us of that.When you feel you are “of age” (in a sense), you CAN’T not read this book. It has befriended me and haunted me in so many ways. I love Anne and I mourn her, and all the other victims just like her, every time I think about the Holocaust. She is the representative for all the suffering that the Holocaust inflicted, and her diary makes you feel it in such an important way.
Reading this book is both rewarding and sad, so prepare yourself for both. I’m less than half way through this book and I feel nothing but sadness that such a life was taken at such a young time in life. I wish I could express my feeling about this book in the same way Anne could express herself in her diary, but I don’t possess such a talent, even though I’m twenty years her senior. Like most people, I know what Anne’s destiny was, and I find some aspects of this diary very difficult to read, knowing what I do.I don’t think I’m the only person alive that believes that this world is a much poorer place without the talents of such gifted people like Anne, but we cannot change the course of history, so lets hope we can instead learn the lesson of our past.I’m not the type for travelling, but this diary has inspired me to visit Anne’s ‘secret Annex’ to see first hand the place where she lived in isolation for so long. I’ve read many books in my time, but none have touched my heart as this one has.
