THE DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL
remains the single most poignant true-life story to emerge from the
Second World War.
In July 1942 Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi
occupation, hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse. Anne
was thirteen when the family went into the Secret Annexe and, over the
next two years, she vividly describes in her diary the frustrations of
living is such confined quarters, the constant threat of discovery, the
hunger and fear. Her diary ends abruptly when, in
August 1944, she and her family were finally discovered by the Nazis.
Anne Frank died in March 1945, aged fifteen, in Bergen-Belsen
concentration camp in Germany.
This book provides a deeply moving and unforgettable portrait of Anne
Frank – an ordinary and yet an extraordinary teenage girl.
