Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
The Definitive Edition
Included in this Definitive Edition are diary entries previously omitted from the original, passages which reinforce the fact that Anne was first and foremost a teenage girl, not a remote and flawless symbol. She fretted over her emerging sexuality; often found herself in disagreement with the adults around her; and veered between the carefree nature of a child and the full-fledged sorrow of an adult living under extraordinary conditions and unbearable strain. Anne emerges more triumphantly and heart-breakingly human, more vulnerable, and more vital than ever.
Anne Frank and her family hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse for two years in an effort to escape the horrors of Nazi occupation. Only thirteen when her family went into the Secret Annex, she reveals her daily life as the world around them succumbed to the worst horror the modern world had seen, facing hunger, the threat of discovery and death, estrangement from the outside world, and above all, the boredom, the petty misunderstandings, and the frustrations of living in such confined quarters.
A timeless story rediscovered by each new generation, The Diary of a Young Girl stands without peer, and acclaimed actress Winona Ryder brings this unforgettable young woman to life in a stunning performance for listeners of all ages to cherish.

For her thirteenth birthday Anne Frank received a diary as a present from her father. She kept it from 12 June 1942 to 1 August 1944. In this diary, which she addressed to an imaginary friend called Kitty, Anne wrote about her life - first in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam and then, when the Nazi persecution of Jews forced her family into hiding, in the sealed-off back rooms of an Amsterdam office building, which they referred to as the ‘Secret Annexe’. Anne had always dreamed of being a writer and hoped one day to publish her diary.Review:
This book was great. My sister needed it for a school project but I read it as well to be sure her paper was accurate and perfect. I would recommend this book to all children. Depending upon age of course. My sister is 11. I believe it expands their horizon. --ByAmelia D.on 12 March 2015

Fact of the matter is Anne Frank didnt survive the holocaust she was starved to death in a German concentration camp. Brings us back to a time when Germans were "just following orders". What a weak society in actuality when brainwashed blue eyed blonde haired FREAKS ran around killing EVERYONE. They were just following orders. The German people had no mind of their own. Merely programmable robots who kill for pleasure. --ByHarvey Harrelsonon 20 March 2015
