The diary as Anne Frank wrote it.

At last, in a new translation, this definitive edition contains entries about Anne’s burgeoning sexuality and confrontations with her mother that were cut from previous editions. Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl is among the most enduring documents of the twentieth century. Since its publication in 1947, it has been a beloved and deeply admired monument to the indestructible nature of the human spirit, read by millions of people and translated into more than fifty-five languages. Doubleday, which published the first English translation of the diary in 1952, now offers a new translation that captures Anne’s youthful spirit and restores the original material omitted by Anne’s father, Otto—approximately thirty percent of the diary. The elder Frank excised details about Anne’s emerging sexuality, and about the often-stormy relations between Anne and her mother.

Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation forces, hid in the back of an Amsterdam office building for two years. This is Anne’s record of that time. She was thirteen when the family went into the “Secret Annex,” and in these pages, she grows to be a young woman and proves to be an insightful observer of human nature as well. A timeless story discovered by each new generation, The Diary of a Young Girl stands without peer. For young readers and adults, it continues to bring to life this young woman, who for a time survived the worst horrors the modern world had seen—and who remained triumphantly and heartbreakingly human throughout her ordeal.

    Anne frank was a real o.g. , she was possibly the first o.g. ,nobody’s denying that. However I would suggest that she should stick to poppin’ glocks and trappin’ early in the morning, or whatever an o.g. like her does. If I was in her place, I would maybe write a musical or like a movie with a liam Neeson type actor, someone with like a tough guy vibe, something with widespread appeal, you know. I feel like she also missed a bunch of opportunities for really funny jokes. I thought that, for a comedy, this was possibly one of the worst. But i do suggest if they make a movie they cast robbin williams as Auto Frank, that’d be funny
  • Boring and agitating

    As I read this book I started to dislike it more and more. As the book went on the only thing she talked about was her problems and I’m not a phycologist an dI don’t care about her problems. If I didn’t have to read this for school I would have stopped on the first page!
  • Amazing!

    I love this book. It shows the daring journey of a 13 year old girl who is Jewish during WWll. I actually went to the local bookstore and bought it. I have read the German version as well. She was a truly amazing person who was lucky enough for her father to find her diary and publish it. A MUST READ for 10 and up. P.S- I am ten and still love this book. Amazing book!❤️💛💚💙💜

    This book is great. It makes you feel her pain, her joy, and her sadness. This book is very helpful to learn about the history of the Halicaus and is very intresting. This is a middle school read.

    It amazes me how articulate and communicative Anne was through her writings. I really appreciated being able to catch a glimpse of her life.
