By Bacchus TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 April 2015
After knowing of this book for over forty years, I have finally got round to reading it.

At school, I thought that she was some kind of saint and I recall her reputation as a little bit sepia tinted (with her hiding place being preserved as a museum) while later TV shows showed her as some rather petulant precocious teenager. Recently, I have learnt that Holocaust deniers claim this book is a forgery. With so much media coverage over the years, I thought it was high time that I find out for myself what this book is about and what it says.

I have always wondered why Holocaust deniers claim this is a fake. While it mentions gas chambers and the ever present possibility of being killed by the Nazis, it does not cover the experience of the concentration camps and is therefore not proof of the Final Solution of the Jewish Question or of mass murders at Auschwitz. Deborah Lipstadt's theory is that as it is a very popular book read by millions of school children who know very little else about the Holocaust, by alleging that this book is a fake, it will undermine the rest of the historical narrative about the Holocaust. After reading this book, I have formed my own view.

The first thing that is clear is that Anne Frank was no saint; she was an ordinary teenage girl who was interested in her girlfriends and was exploring her own growing sexuality and pursuing her interests (Greek mythology, Film Stars and Royal genealogies mainly). She was the youngest of 8 people cooped up in an attic for two years and most of her observations were about the people she was with rather than the world outside. Here observations about her family and friends are not always particularly kind.

What can you say about this book that hasn't been said before? Anne gives us an insight of her life living in hiding during nazi occupation of Holland. You feel close to Anne as she details her daily life in the annexe. You read her becoming a woman by getting her period, her strained relationship with her mother and her crush on Peter. I feel very fortunate to have read this book and to own it. It's very poignant that Anne Frank did become famous,but it only occurred after her death.

This is one of the most interesting book that I have ever read when I started reading it I could not put it down the diary begins. '12 June 1942: I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support' ". She movingly revealed how the eight people living under these extraordinary conditions coped with hunger, the daily threat of discovery and death and being cut off from the outside world, as well as petty misunderstandings and the unbearable strain of living like prisoners.
Anne Frank and her family fled the horrors of Nazi occupation by hiding in the back of a warehouse in Amsterdam for two years with another family and a German dentist. Then went into the secret annex at thirteen years old She died while imprisoned at Bergen-Belsen, three months short of her sixteenth birthday. "The Diary of a Young Girl" is a timeless true story to be rediscovered by each new generation. For young readers and adults it continues to bring to life Anne's extraordinary courage and struggle throughout her ordeal.
