Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is among the most enduring documents of the twentieth century. Since its publication in 1947, it has been read by tens of millions of people all over the world. It remains a beloved and deeply admired testament to the indestructible nature of the human spirit. Restored in this Definitive Edition are diary entries that were omitted from the original edition. These passages, which constitute 30 percent more material, reinforce the fact that Anne was first and foremost a teenage girl, not a remote and flawless symbol. She fretted about and tried to cope with her own sexuality. Like many young girls, she often found herself in disagreements with her mother. And like any teenager, she veered between the carefree nature of a child and the full-fledged sorrow of an adult. Anne emerges more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever.Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation, hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse for two years. She was thirteen when she went into the Secret Annex with her family.

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 ...

It can help you to understand what the holocaust meant to those caught up in it. Being the real story of a...
