Description

  • Great product!
  • 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. --Wendy Smith
