9780141182759: The Diary of a Young Girl: The Definitive Edition (Penguin Modern Classics)

Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is an inspiring and tragic account of an ordinary life lived in extraordinary circumstances that has enthralled readers for generations. This Penguin Modern Classics edition is edited by Otto H. Frank and Mirjam Pressler, translated by Susan Massotty, and includes an introduction by Elie Wiesel, author of Night.

'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 Amsterdam, in the summer of 1942, the Nazis forced teenager Anne Frank and her family into hiding. For over two years, they, another family and a German dentist lived in a 'secret annexe', fearing discovery. All that time, Anne kept a diary. Since its publication in 1947, Anne Frank's diary has been read by tens of millions of people. This Definitive Edition restores substantial material omitted from the original edition, giving us a deeper insight into Anne Frank's world. Her curiosity about her emerging sexuality, the conflicts with her mother, her passion for Peter, a boy whose family hid with hers, and her acute portraits of her fellow prisoners reveal Anne as more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever.

If you enjoyed The Diary of a Young Girl, you might also like Hannah Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, available in Penguin Classics.

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

ANNE FRANK ON ANNE FRANK....you tube gives the world garry hixons diary, the real diary of anne frank. not this rubbish..thanik you...anne you almost made it...to 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
