A beloved classic since its initial publication in 1947, this
vivid, insightful journal is a fitting memorial to the gifted
Jewish teenager who died at Bergen-Belsen, Germany, in 1945. Born
in 1929, Anne Frank received a blank diary on her 13th birthday,
just weeks before she and her family went into hiding in
Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. Her marvelously detailed, engagingly
personal entries chronicle 25 trying months of claustrophobic,
quarrelsome intimacy with her parents, sister, a second family,
and a middle-aged dentist who has little tolerance for Anne's
vivacity. The diary's universal appeal stems from its riveting
blend of the grubby particulars of life during wartime (scant,
bad food; shabby, outgrown clothes that can't be replaced;
constant fear of discovery) and candid discussion of emotions
familiar to every adolescent (everyone criticizes me, no one sees
my real nature, when will I be loved?). Yet Frank was no ordinary
teen: the later entries reveal a sense of compassion and a
spiritual depth remarkable in a girl barely 15. Her death
epitomizes the madness of the Holocaust, but for the millions who
meet Anne through her diary, it is also a very individual loss.
