Anne Frank: The diary of a young girl: the definitive edition
Edited by Otto H Frank and Mirjam Pressler
In July 1942, thirteen year-old Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation, went into hiding in an Amsterdam house. Over the next two years Anne vividly describes in her diary not only the daily frustrations of living in such close quarters, but also her thoughts, feelings and longings as she grows up. Her diary ends abruptly and tragically when, in August 1944, Anne and her family were all finally betrayed.
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank remains the single most poignant story to emerge from the Second World War, and her diary has come to symbolize not only the horrors of the Holocaust but the strength of the human spirit in adversity.
