The Diary of Anne Frank is a real diary written by a real girl who had to go into hiding during the Holocaust. Anne can confide in her diary about anything. She writes about the troubles involving the Nazis and the persecution of the Jews, the difficulties of sharing a small living space with eight other people and having only the bare essentials to live on, the problem of having to keep silent so as not to be heard, and also, the hardships of having to face the problems that any thirteen year old girl has to face whilst living in these terrible conditions.
'The diary of Anne Frank' is a must-have book for any teenage or adult reader. It is deep, touching, emotional and at times upsetting, which, along with its reality and fact makes it a truly unique book to read.

Great book of the well known story, I bought it for a home schooled teenager who is learning about the war after we had discussed racism. Anne's story brings a reality to the horrors of the period that you just can't get across from reading war books, this is the real story of a real girl who one day was living a normal life and the next her life was thrown into turmoil in ways we can only begin to empathise with. Very touching and the photos, although shocking portray the reality.
