The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, Definitive Edition
The single most poignant true-life to emerge from the Second World War
In July 1942, Anne Frank and her family, feeling the horrors of Nazi occupation, hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse. Anne was thirteen when the family went into the Street Annexe and, over the next two years, she vividly describes in her diary the frustrations of living in such confined quarters, the constant threat of discovery, hunger and tiredness and above all, the boredom. Her diary ends abruptly when in August 1944, she and her family were finally discovered by the Nazis.
This book provides a deeply moving and unforgettable portrait of Anne Frank – an ordinary girl yet an extraordinary teenage girl.
Edited by Otto H. Frank and Miriam Pressler
