Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is an inspiring and tragic account of an ordinary life lived in extraordinary circumstances that has enthralled readers for generations. This Penguin Classics edition is edited by Otto H. Frank and Mirjam Pressler, translated by Susan Massotty, and includes an introduction by Elie Wiesel, author of Night.

'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.'

In Amsterdam, in the summer of 1942, the Nazis forced teenager Anne Frank and her family into hiding. For over two years, they, another family and a German dentist lived in a 'secret annexe', fearing discovery. All that time, Anne kept a diary. Since its publication in 1947, Anne Frank's diary has been read by tens of millions of people. This Definitive Edition restores substantial material omitted from the original edition, giving us a deeper insight into Anne Frank's world. Her curiosity about her emerging sexuality, the conflicts with her mother, her passion for Peter, a boy whose family hid with hers, and her acute portraits of her fellow prisoners reveal Anne as more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever.

The book was marked as New but I received a bit of a battered copy. However, considering the price and the Penguin edition, it was not a bad deal. The book is obviously a modern classic and a must read for anyone who wishes to dive into the world war two impact on the ordinary people especially the most persecuted of them.


Anne Frank is someone who will always inspire me.
She was hopeful, kind, and unique..A girl of merely 14 years of age expressed grief, sorrow, and yearning in such a way that millions today read her and can relate.
Bookish Santa made that experience extraordinary by their perfect copy of the book. The condition was excellent. The paper quality was good. Really recommended
