Ever since it was first discovered in the attic in which she spent the last few years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary stands as the world’s powerful testament to the human spirit and reminder of the horrors of war. When the Nazis occupied Holland in 1942, thirteen-year-old Anne Frank and her Jewish family fled from their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. Before they were betrayed and their whereabouts were exposed to the Gestapo, the Franks and another Jewish family sought refuge in a “secret annex” of an old office building. Cut off from the world, they faced boredom, hunger, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters and the always-present threat of death. In her diary, Anne Frank recounted the vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. Thoughtful, amusing and moving, The Diary of Anne Frank offers a fascinating commentary on human frailty and courage, and a compelling self-portrait of a spirited, but sensitive young woman whose life was tragically cut short.
