The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank Book Summary

THE DEFINITIVE EDITION • Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has since become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit.

Updated for the 75th Anniversary of the Diary’s first publication with a new introduction by Nobel Prize–winner Nadia Murad

“The single most compelling personal account of the Holocaust ... remains astonishing and excruciating.”—The New York Times Book Review

In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the “Secret Annex” of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death. In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short.

The Diary of a Young Girl (Anne Frank) Book Reviews

Very meaningful.This book means a lot to me it’s very saddening that a girl Anne’s age died so young and she had such a unique perspective of the world I wish I could have an imagination like hers she acted like a little adult and for her age you can tell she was very mature she was such a gorgeous young girl so of course she had many admirers I have my own diary just like Anne’s and I hope one day my children will publish my diary for me I’ve been threw allot of tough times and I hope someone in this world can tell my story and maybe I can influence or inspire someone just like Anne inspired me to always pay attention to the world around you cause you never know when you won’t be around to see it (and the person who said this book is stupid is very rude and I hope you know that the girl that wrote this book died at 16 and this book is showcasing all she went through so you saying it’s stupid is very unkind so I advise you too go take a good look at yourself and ask yourself "am I a good person" and I’m sure you will find out that you are not .

Anne FrankThis book changed a big part of history and is amazing.Score: 5/5

So inspiring!This book was amazing! It really captured the spirit of a young girl growing up in such a detestable world. I really loved how as you read on you could really see her grow up. I felt very connected and understanding of Anne considering I am also an adolescent of the age 14. Listening to her troubles and interest reminded me of myself in a way. Though i never went through such troubles as she did in her lifetime, I did still have the same feelings and wonders she did. After all, Anne still was a teenage girl no matter what happened to her. Her insight on the people and events around her continued to mature as she wrote over the years. It was amazing, to me, how one is forced to grow up so fast in such a tough situation. Anne Frank was a very brave girl with an amusingly interestingly character, and after reading her thoughts on life and on accepting yourself and others I've come to start thinking about myself, and how I've lived my life, and have started to change my own insight, as i was inspired by Anne's thoughtful personality. May Anne Frank and all the others who died during the horrific occurrences of World War II, as well as anyone who has ever passed on trying to help others in need, or by the cruelty of others when they deserved nothing but love and a good future, live on in history and in the hearts of all of us who will miss them greatly and will forever remember the sacrifices they made and the courage they carried, even throughout all their pain. You shall be greatly missed. : ).Score: 5/5

Amazing but..I had to read this book as an assignment for my English class and my mother would not let me get the hard copy. I was very surprised that iBooks had it because no other website had it. I would give tis 5 stars but it changed some phrases which made it extremely hard for me and my group to talk about the book and answer the comprehension questions. Other wise I loved the book very good quality. Also I love how you are able to highlight words and phrases. I also loved how you could mark multiple pages at once it is especially helpful if you are like me and have to read up to a certain part every week.Amazing , awesome,very well put together!!.Score: 4/5

Idk mannnn...Anne frank was a real o.g. , she was possibly the first o.g. ,nobody’s denying that. However I would suggest that she should stick to poppin’ glocks and trappin’ early in the morning, or whatever an o.g. like her does. If I was in her place, I would maybe write a musical or like a movie with a liam Neeson type actor, someone with like a tough guy vibe, something with widespread appeal, you know. I feel like she also missed a bunch of opportunities for really funny jokes. I thought that, for a comedy, this was possibly one of the worst. But i do suggest if they make a movie they cast robbin williams as Auto Frank, that’d be funny.Score: 2/5

Amazing BookThe first time I read an Anne Frank diary was actually a book copy but the Play write. I kinda want to know what other people went through in WWII.Score: 5/5

Beautiful soul..I just finished reading the book. I'm grateful to God, for having gifted humanity with such a beautiful and inspiring young girl. She was too young but more mature than many thrice her age.. Spoke of books, God, compassion, ambition and most of all, the ups and downs of being 'human'.. Many can be learned from the "musings of a thirteen year old"..! She has, indeed lived long after she's dead, just like she wished in her own diary....Score: 5/5

Anne FrankI love this book. It shows the daring journey of a 13 year old girl who is Jewish during WWll. I actually went to the local bookstore and bought it. I have read the German version as well. She was a truly amazing person who was lucky enough for her father to find her diary and publish it. A MUST READ for 10 and up. P.S- I am ten and still love this book. Amazing book!❤️💛💚💙💜.Score: 5/5

The Diary of a Young GirlTragic.Score: 5/5

Difficult to readI never read this as a child, so I thought I would read it now. Being a teenage girl myself once, and raising a teenage girl, this was hard for me to read given all the drama and self absorbed writings in Anne’s diary (brought me back to those self absorbed times myself). I’m sad that Anne never got to grow up and I’m sadder still that people can be so evil and inflict atrocities on those we feel are different or aren’t “us”. The only reason for the three stars was because it was so hard to keep reading the thoughts of a teenage girl. Ha..Score: 3/5

Wow (please read)I am a 13 year old girl who loves history and poetry, also I keep a diary, in honor of Anne, I named her Frankie. Frankie has kept lots of secrets for me, and a few of my own poems are kept in Frankie. Anne’s diary, (aka Kitty) has inspired me to write my own book, titled, “Hiding from the Holocaust Monster” About a girl named Maple with similar interest of Anne and I. As I was reading comments, I read one saying, “Worst book of all time” And, “Too boring, skip to the point.” People, Anne couldn’t skip to the point! It’s a diary!! Not a fictional book that some girl wrote up!!! Yes it’s depressing in some parts, but that is HISTORY!!!!! Lots of terrible as well as wonderful things happened in the past. It had to. All of us Americans need to appreciate what brave men and women DIED for! If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t be FREE!!! Happy Veterans Day, God bless, Tatum Tipp, J.A. (Junior Author).Score: 5/5

What have we learned?What an amazing form of art of intellectual insight of things around this youthful woman and of herself: Anne Frank. Extremely very well articulately written..great inspirations for future writers and of youths in our are not alone. From one side of the other world to the next, all youths feel and see things almost as if they were philosopher..seeing things as they truly are. Great expectations are more to come for those who want to improve on literature, confidence, self expression, an educated person like Anne noticed when one admits when one's doing wrong and wanting to change for better. Her legacy is of great inspiration to me as it should be for the world and improve on our own selves and to avoid all kinds of wars ...starting with the wars and tempest that starts with our inner self. Great! Awesome! Anne Peace to you and family! Up in heaven and earth: GIVE PEACE A CHANCE so we won't miss out on extraordinary and the uniqueness of people such as's time for change: lets give PEACE that chance...lets all try it but lets do it together ;).Score: 5/5

The Diary of a Young GirlFor those who do not know their history, ( and that seems to be quite a lot you out there ). This is probably one of the greatest nonfiction books ever of the 20th century. A personal account of the price that's paid when governments exercise totalitarian control over the populace. The Nazi regime in Germany during the 30's & 40's is as close to state sponsored evil that's ever happened. Rouge terrorism today is no where near what happened back then, the difference was that Germany had it's own terror squads and a well developed and equipped Army, Navy, and Air Force to back it all up. In early 1941 the whole world was at the threshold of a fascist ideology of world domination. This one young girl's account of what happened to her and her family is without rival, and should be required reading for any person young or old alike!!.Score: 5/5

My Honest Opinion.I am currently on page 778/993 and I love it, but at some points I just can’t help myself from tearing up. I am currently learning German as my second language and I hope to be able to read and comprehend the original German version. I decided to read this before it was assigned in school, I doubt they would have assigned a book such as this during at-home studies but you get the point, I have used Anne’s pieces as inspiration of my own and It turn out to be some of my best writing yet. (I’m known to be somewhat of a good writer amongst my peers and am frequently looked to for advice) but when I wrote my story, oh my, did it astonish me– I’ve never written like that before and it’s all thanks to a certain 13 year old Jewish girl named Anne! I may have gotten off topic a bit, but for my review to make sense I believe you need to know how this book affected me (and Is still affecting me). There is truly no point in this book that I didn’t love with all my heart, every page and paragraph you’ll find yourself immersed in the world of the Secret Annex, and what the experience of living during Nazi reign was really like for the millions of Jews affected by the Hitler and the rest of the Nazi party. This is and I believe will always be my favorite book of all time. Yours, C..Score: 5/5
