Editorial Reviews Review

A beloved classic since its initial publication in 1947, this vivid, insightful journal is a fitting memorial to the gifted Jewish teenager who died at Bergen-Belsen, Germany, in 1945. Born in 1929, Anne Frank received a blank diary on her 13th birthday, just weeks before she and her family went into hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. Her marvelously detailed, engagingly personal entries chronicle 25 trying months of claustrophobic, quarrelsome intimacy with her parents, sister, a second family, and a middle-aged dentist who has little tolerance for Anne's vivacity. The diary's universal appeal stems from its riveting blend of the grubby particulars of life during wartime (scant, bad food; shabby, outgrown clothes that can't be replaced; constant fear of discovery) and candid discussion of emotions familiar to every adolescent (everyone criticizes me, no one sees my real nature, when will I be loved?). Yet Frank was no ordinary teen: the later entries reveal a sense of compassion and a spiritual depth remarkable in a girl barely 15. Her death epitomizes the madness of the Holocaust, but for the millions who meet Anne through her diary, it is also a very individual loss. --Wendy Smith


“A truly remarkable book.”The New York Times

“One of the most moving personal documents to come out of World War II.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“The new edition reveals a new depth to Anne’s dreams, irritations, hardship, and passions. . . . There may be no better way to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II than to reread 
The Diary of a Young Girl, a testament to an indestructible nobility of spirit in the face of pure evil.”Chicago Tribune 

“The single most compelling personal account of the Holocaust . . . remains astonishing and excruciating.”
The New York Times Book Review

“How brilliantly Anne Frank captures the self-conscious alienation and naïve self-absorption of adolescence.”

Hai guys👋

Before reading this book i thought this book is for kids but anyway i gave it a try and i am so gladful that i didn't missed it an d also i have a regret that i didn't read this one for this much long.👌

Book content-:👇🏻

This book is the diary of a young girl 'Anne Frank'.The story begins on Anne's 13th birthday when she gets a diary.☝

This story reveals the sufferings and pains faced by Anne's family when the Nazi part invaded Germany.At that point they are staying in the Frankfurt but they later escaped to Amsterdam.The diary suddenly ends on 1 August 1944.(This makes me to shed a tear drop)😢

In her diary she was questioning herself about the right of equality among humans.She left us a question for every vivid reader that "If we belongs to a particular caste or race then will it takes away the freedom for living?".But she was a happy and talkative person who loves to describe others.😘

When the diary suddenly ends it will break our heart and we will really wish in the courner of our heart that she will be fine & there is nothing to worry eventhough we know that she was no more..!😢

👉🏻Thank's 4 reading👈🏻

Social/Historical context:

The diary was written in Amsterdam from 1942-1944, major part of it being written while hiding in the annex. The novel provides valuable information about the holocaust, the Nazi regime and the horrors the Jews had to face. From the book we understand that Jews during the time were not allowed to use public transport and it was mandatory for Jews to wear a yellow badge on their garments so as to identify them as Jews in public.

Writing Style:

Anne Frank was obviously a very talented writer. Anne had such mature views about life and relations ship. Due to the outstanding nature of the writing many had criticized that the book was fabricated. The diary was then subjected to forensic studies and proved otherwise. The writing style is simple and easy to comprehend, written from a first person perspective.

My Thoughts:

Anne Frank’s Diary is a heart rending and moving read. Thinking of a little girl surviving in a cramped space with constant fear of being caught almost brought tears to my eyes. Sometimes life was so hard for Anne that for a moment, she thinks it might have been better if she had died instead of hiding in the Annex. Though she realizes that her life and dreams might be shattered, the courage to face life whatever may happen is truly inspiring. I feel that this is a novel everyone should read in order to understand the destructiveness of fascism and bigotry.
