About the Book:
2017 marks 70 years since Otto Frank published the diary written by his daughter Anne: The Diary of a Young Girl. Since then, it has been translated into more than 70 languages.
Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl is among the most enduring documents of the twentieth century. Since its publication in 1947, it has been a beloved and deeply admired monument to the indestructible nature of the human spirit and read by millions of people.
Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation forces, hid in the back of an Amsterdam office building for two years. This is Anne’s record of that time. She was thirteen when the family went into the “Secret Annex,” and in these pages, she grows to be a young woman and proves to be an insightful observer of human nature as well. A timeless story discovered by each new generation, The Diary of a Young Girl stands without peer. For young readers and adults, it continues to bring to life this young woman, who for a time survived the worst horrors the modern world had seen — and who remained triumphantly and heartbreakingly human throughout her ordeal.
How did a young girl’s diary become one of the most widely read books about the persecution of the Jews? And why is it still so important and inspirational today? Discover the story behind Anne Frank’s diary here…
