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.

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...
