Item Description...
Written in the Amsterdam attic where she and her family hid from the Nazis for nearly two years, a new edition of the diary of teenager Anne Frank has been enriched by passages originally withheld by her father, offering a wise and timeless testament to the human spirit. Reprint.

Publishers Description
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 read by tens of millions of people all over the world. It remains a beloved and deeply admired testament to the indestructible nature of the human spirit. Restored in this Definitive Edition are diary entries that were omitted from the original edition. These passages, which constitute 30 percent more material, reinforce the fact that Anne was first and foremost a teenage girl, not a remote and flawless symbol. She fretted about and tried to cope with her own sexuality. Like many young girls, she often found herself in disagreements with her mother. And like any teenager, she veered between the carefree nature of a child and the full-fledged sorrow of an adult. Anne emerges more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever.
Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation, hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse for two years. She was thirteen when she went into the Secret Annex with her family.

Anne Frank .. the girl who saved me  Jun 13, 2008
I was in a training course sitting and drawing roses in my note book, the instructor - out of the blue -decided to choose the one girl with no attention to stand in the middle of the class room and tell a story that will grab everycody's attention. he wanted to see if we can actually make the right choice. I was really surprised and nervous. i stood there and talked about the one story that grabed my attention lately specialy with the fact that i just came from Amsteredam. I talked about Anne and her story, her diary and the amazing sense of words and expressions she had. I talked to them about my passion towards her days and her hidden Annexe she hide in for almost 2 years. everybody listened and were totally into the story and me . The book is amazing, its a different kind of diary and different type of memoir. Its really an amazing story for an amazing young story teller.
Her Legacy Lives on in Her Diary!  Jun 12, 2008
Anne Frank was an aspiring writer, a young lady, and Jewish girl who was in hiding in the attic in Amsterdam, Netherlands during the horrors of World War II. Anne's personal diary resurrects the actual horrors of the war and the holocaust which claimed her life as well as her mother, sister, and other residents in the attic. Life was hard enough as a Jewish girl in Hitler's time, it was practically impossible to survive much less thrive. This diary explains how Anne coped with daily horrors and daily living situation being unable to speak above a whisper rather than not be heard. Her legacy is her diary and it humanizes the inhuman experiences that harmed so many innocent people regardless of religion, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. Anne writes candidly about her struggles with a sense of optimism. We can only imagine how she survived and thrived in the attic despite her circumstances. You never get the sense that she blamed the world or others for her situation. She has this sense of optimism and hope all through out despite her fate as she died in Bergen-Belsen right before liberation. I wonder if she had lived that the world would never get to know this fascinating young girl as she transformed into a young lady of so much promise and hope. She gives us all hope that life is not always doomed but it's how you look at it.
Ignorance among our population.  Jun 11, 2008
It's very unfortunate that some people in our country remain uneducated and uncompassionate about the facts behind the premeditated murder that occurred during Adolph Hitler's reign. There is also a great lack of proper spelling, grammar and punctuation amongst the one and two star reviewers in the Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl reviews. All of these facts are reasons to be concerned for the future of our youth and their education in english and world history. The great tragedy of all is that there is still doubt that the Holocaust really happened and was very horrible, there is still doubt that six million people were really murdered and doubt that the diary of Anne Frank was really authored by one of these murder victims. Hopefully we as individuals can speak for those 6,000,000 innocent murder victims, without forgetting the casualties of World War II and the millions of troops who gave the full measure of devotion and make a difference by speaking up when we hear someone deny or misinterpret the facts.
Definitive Edition  May 29, 2008
I read Ann Frank Diary Of A Young Girl a long time ago and I still have it.
I thought that in this definitive edition,there would be much more text and much more new revelations.
In this edition,her writings about her sexual curiosity,her unpleasant feelings toward her mother and others is included along with a few added paragraphs that were omitted in the original version.
Comparing the first version and The Critical edition and The Definitive addition doesn't make lots of sense to me.That's enough on "the editions".
Back to Ann Frank's Diary, the one thing that always gets me misty eyed is that she is so young and that her attitude and outlook is so happy and hopeful.She was an optimist.
I know there are less popular journals written about this period and the suffering,but somehow,it seems fateful that Ann's would be the one to become a legend.Even the fact that there exists a brief moving film clip of her out on the balcony waving, when at that time there wasn't much personal family filming,that seems to reinforce my thinking that hers was a purpose of example.
In such a short life,she suffered everything you could think of.Isolation,no friends,little food and finally starvation,disease and death in those camps.
Her pre-war life was lavish,both mother and father were wealthy and Ann seemed spoiled and had many friends making it all the more harder to go from wealthy and popular school girl to a life in hiding,with limited food and clothing and fresh air.Instead she looks to the future and herhope of freedom after the war is over.
Other children might become extremely depressed and feel doomed and hopeless.
Her father making sure the children continued their studies of algebra,language and providing them with books and other things to keep the children must have helped alot.Her flirtation and deepening feelings for Peter probably helped her cope too.
When I read things like "she was nothing special" and "it's only because her diary was found" that she became celebrated makes me wonder how people that say those things would manage in the same situation.
Anyway, I'm glad schools have children read the book and learn about the insane,dismal consequences of categorizing people of any race and religious belief.
The unbelievable and unthinkable did happen and I'm grateful that Ann had written her journal and that it is still so widely read.
one of the world's best pieces of literature  May 29, 2008
[...] I recall the honest Anne Frank, whose youthful truths have been denied many times, faulting her father for overlooking her grievances. "He failed to see," she jots down in the last few entries of that fateful journal, "that this struggle to triumph over my difficulties was more important to me than anything else. I didn't want to hear about `typical adolescent problems,' or `other girls,' or `you'll grow out of it.' I didn't want to be treated the same as all-the-other-girls, but as Anne-in-her-own-right" [...] --from "Recollections"
