The Diary of a Young Girl (The Definitive / 70th Anniversary Edition)
Seventy years since Anne began her diary . . .
'12th June, 1942: I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.'
In the summer of 1942, fleeing the horrors of the Nazi occupation, Anne Frank and her family were forced into hiding in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse.
Aged thirteen when she went into the secret annexe, Anne kept a diary in which she confided her innermost thoughts and feelings, movingly revealing how the eight people living under these extraordinary conditions coped with the daily threat of discovery and death, being cut off from the outside world, petty misunderstandings and the unbearable strain of living like prisoners.
An intimate record of tension and struggle, adolescence and confinement, anger and heartbreak, this is the definitive edition of the diary of Anne Frank.
No. of Pages,
A teenager's account of life in the hiding and there are always people willing to help but the ending is tragic. One of the best written diaries.
The diary of a young girl is much more than a wartime journal. It's the journey of a teenager turning into so much more than an adult. Really, adulthood is overrated. Getting to know oneself is something many people never try to do in their entire lives but Anne did it so perfectly while she was 14. I can't really express the kind of effect this book has had on me. It's truly life-changing.
