Book SynopsisDiscovered 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. "The single most compelling personal account of the Holocaust ... remains astonishing and excruciating."--The New York Times Book Review 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.
Review Quotes"A truly remarkable book."

--The Philadelphia Inquirer "The new edition reveals a new depth to Anne's dreams, irritations, hardship, and passions. . . . 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."

The Diary of Anne Frank Book Review
5 out of 5 stars
Tessel Bedellie - 14 years ago
The Diary of Anne Frank tells the story of a teenage German-Jewish girl named Anne Frank. At the beginning of the memoir, Anne tells us that she received this diary as a birthday present. She then shares with us that she doesn't really have any close friends or confidants, but decides to entrust in her diary, which she refers to as "Kitty." The time of which the memoir takes place is during the Holocaust. Though there are several things Anne should be worried about, Anne comes to find herself concerned about not having enough friends and not getting along with her mother. This shows that she is a typical adolescent, even when in the face of danger. I would recommend reading the Diary of Anne Frank because it is a timeless classic that shows the struggle of a girl and her family during very hard times. This novel can help a person further understand what Jewish people had to go through during the Holocaust. This book is inspiring as it shows Anne's triumph through thick and thin.
