Anne Franks The Diary of a Young Girl is not just a true story but also a piece of history. Written by Anne Frank for herself, at the age of 13, the diary contains candid and intimate details of Annes thoughts and feelings during the two years of the Second World War she and her family and friends stayed hidden. Anne and her family were eventually arrested and sent to the concentration camps,but her diary remains a testament of youthful experiences in times of war.
A must read for absolutely everybody, The Diary of Young Girl needs no introduction except that it should be required reading. A testament to the writing is that it has remained important for so long and is (unfotunately) still relevant. Anne and her family go into hiding in Amsterdam in 1942, and she details the next two years. What is startling is how Anne is a typical 13-year-old girl, who is experiencing teenage life under awful circumstances. There are moments of levity amongst the brutality and extraordinary moments amongst the mundane - Elisa, Book Grocer
