Sixty-two years after the publication of the Diary of Anne Frank in Dutch, Aladdin Library is proud to offer its readers the first authorised translations of the book in Arabic and Persian. Anne Frank was born on June 12, 1929 in Frankfurt, Germany. For the first 5 years of her life, Anne lived with her parents, Otto and Edith, and older sister, Margot, in an apartment on the outskirts of Frankfurt. After Hitler s rise to power in 1933, the family moved to Amsterdam in the Netherlands to flee the increasing persecution of Jews in Germany. Seven years later, the German army occupied the Netherlands and the fragile peace of the Frank family was once again shattered. By July 1942, the Nazi authorities in the Netherlands had received orders to deport Jews to concentration camps in German-occupied Poland. Anne and her family went into hiding in a secret attic apartment behind the office of Otto Frank's business. They were soon joined by four Jewish friends of the family. Several non-Jewish friends and colleagues of Otto Frank smuggled food and clothing to the secret annexe at great risk to their own lives. On August 4, 1944, officials of the German secret police, the Gestapo, and their Dutch collaborators raided the hideout after being tipped off by an anonymous Dutch caller. The eight detainees were sent to Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. Selected for labour due to their youth, Anne and her sister, Margot were transferred to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in northern Germany in late October 1944. Both sisters died of typhus in March 1945, just a few weeks before British troops liberated Bergen-Belsen on April 15, 1945. Anne's mother, Edith, died in Auschwitz in early January 1945. Only Anne's father, Otto, survived the war. Soviet forces liberated Otto at Auschwitz on January 27, 1945. While in hiding, Anne kept a diary in which she recorded her fears, hopes, and experiences. Found in the secret apartment after the family was arrested, the diary was kept for Anne by Miep Gies, one of the people who had helped hide the Franks. After learning of Anne s death, she gave the diary to Otto Frank. Since its first publication in 1947, the Diary has been translated into more than sixty languages and has become one of the most celebrated books of the 20th century. Through the diary of this Dutch schoolgirl, millions of readers around the world came to know personally one of Hitler's countless victims: an unfathomable and anonymous horror found a face.

4.0 The Diary of a Young Girl / Anne Frank
I finally got around to reading this heart-warming and heart-wrenching document. I attempted it as a much younger person and didn’t get very far, perhaps because I was a teenager myself with my own angst to deal with. There’s no doubt that Anne was right about her own writing abilities. If she ...

4.0 The Diary of a Young Girl: The Definitive Edition
I read this book as part of Dead Writers Society Literary Birthday Challenge for 2016. I selected this one, and three other books because I feel like I have been slacking lately on my challenges on Goodreads. I first read version b of The Diary of a Young Girl when I was a teenager. I recall being s...

3.0 The Diary of a Young Girl
Near the end of the novel, she becomes very insightful. Honestly, for the most part, this felt like exactly what it was - a diary of a young girl. She'd mention all the things they had to suffer through in that attic, and I'd remember that they were events that really happened, and I'd be horrified ...

5.0
The story of Anne Frank should be read in fifth grade. It teaches history lessons about WW2 and teaches the important of family. This is a different type of story because it is read by reading journal entries that Anne Frank actually wrote while she was isolated in an attic as a Jewish refugee in ...

To read Anne Frank describing her thoughts and feelings while going through this horrible time for any human being is heartbreaking. So heartbreaking yet so important. This book is a classic. It can help you to understand what the holocaust meant to those caught up in it. Being the real story of a...
