Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl (Definitive Edition)

In the summer of 1942, fleeing the horrors of the Nazi occupation, Anne Frank and her family were forced into hiding in the attic of an Amsterdam warehouse. Aged just thirteen when she entered the secret annexe, Anne kept a diary in which she confided her innermost thoughts and feelings, movingly revealing how the eight people living under these extraordinary conditions coped with the daily threat of discovery and death. Cut off from the outside world, they faced squabbles and petty misunderstandings, the fear of betrayal and the unbearable strain of living like prisoners. An intimate record of tension and struggle, adolescence and confinement, anger and heartbreak, this is the definitive edition of the diary of Anne Frank.

“One of the greatest books of the century.” Guardian

“Rings down the decades as the most moving testament to the persecution of innocence.” Daily Mail
