Anne Frank: The Diary

Book Review

In the long run, the sharpest weapon of all is a kind and gentle spirit.”
― 
Anne Frank, The Diary of Anne Frank

‘Anne Frank: The Diary Of A Young Gir’l is the real diary of a teenage girl that begins on Anne’s 13th birthday (12 June 1942) when she gets a diary. It tells the story of her family who live in Frankfurt, Germany and suddenly have to go into hiding as a result of Hitler and the Nazi Party’s treatment of Jews in Europe during the second world war. They escape to Amsterdam where they go underground with other Jews. The diary ends suddenly on 1 August 1944.

There are many important messages in this book, but the most important message is that all people have the right to live in freedom. Anne’s story shows us that just because people may be of a different religion or race, it doesn’t mean that they should be treated differently. The terrible treatment of the Jewish people during the war has shown this. Her diary shows us things that people don’t think about now, for example how every day the people in hiding worried about the possible detection and punishment.

Anne’s diary is a great affirmative answer to the life-question of today, for she shows how ordinary people, within this ordeal, consistently hold to the greater human values.

It is this unfolding psychological drama of a girl’s growth, mingled with the physical danger of the group, that frees Anne’s book from the horizontal effect of most diaries. Hers rises continuously, with the tension of a well-constructed novel. On the plane of physical survival, a series of burglaries in the office-warehouse dreadfully endangers the hidden group. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in reading historical, war or mystery books as it is so catching. This book would be suitable for people aged ten upwards since it is very sad in some passages. My rating is 10/10.
