One of the greatest stories to come out of the horrors of the holocaust in the 1940s was that of the story of Anne Frank. Anne was a young Jewish girl whose family had to go into hiding as Hitler and the Nazis were rounding up Jewish people and putting them into concentration camps.
During the years they were in hiding, Anne kept a diary. When the war was over Anne’s diary was given to her father, Otto Frank. Otto was later convinced to have his daughter’s diary published. The Diary of Anne Frank, also known as The Diary of a Young Girl, was first published in 1947 in Dutch, Anne’s native language, as Het Achterhius (Secret Annex). The first English edition was then published in 1952 and was instantly popular. Below is a summary from parts of Anne’s diary.
