9780140385625: The Diary of a Young Girl: The Definitive Edition

In 1942, Anne Frank and her family fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation, hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse. Over the next two years, Anne describes in her diary her frustrations at being confined, hungry, bored and the threat of discovery. Her diary ends when they are discovered in 1944. Her diary is among the most enduring documents of the 20th century. She kept a diary from 12 June 1942 to 1 August 1944. Initially, she wrote it strictly for herself. Then, one day in 1944, Gerrit Bolkestein, a member of the Dutch government in exile, announced in a radio broadcast from London that after the war, he hoped to collect eyewitness accounts of the suffering of the Dutch people under the German occupation, which could be made available to the public. As an example, he specicially mentioned letters and diaries. Anne Frank decided that when the war was over she would publish a book based on her diary.

Product Description:

Anne Frank - the Diary of a Young Girl


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

ANNE FRANK ON ANNE tube gives the world garry hixons diary, the real diary of anne frank. not this rubbish..thanik you...anne you almost made my sister anne...who did nothing wrong --ByGarry Hixon "Garry Hixon"on 10 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
