The Diary of a Young Girl

The Diary of a Young Girl Summary

The Diary of a Young Girl, also known as The Diary of Anne Frank, is a book of the writings from the Dutch language diary kept by Anne Frank while she was in hiding for two years with her family during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. The family was apprehended in 1944, and Anne Frank died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945. The diary was retrieved by Miep Gies, who gave it to Anne's father, Otto Frank, the family's only known survivor, just after the war was over. The diary has since been published in more than 60 languages.

Annelies Marie Anne Frank (12 June 1929 – February or March 1945) was a German-born diarist. One of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust, she gained fame posthumously with the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl (originally Het Achterhuis; English: The Secret Annex), in which she documents her life in hiding from 1942 to 1944, during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. It is one of the world's most widely known books and has been the basis for several plays and films.

Disrespectfully careless editing1 star

“Readers all over the world know this as The Diary of a fauna Girl.” And I’m only on page 2. They didn’t even proofread to page 2. I regret spending that three bucks already.15

Don’t Bother With This One1 star

This is not the original, nor the edited version she herself wrote. It is also not the version her father put together. It’s some 4th version by no one who ever actually knew her.15
