Anne Frank's diary is one of the most touching and remarkable accounts of one Jewish family's hardships during Hitler's invasion and occupation of Europe. It is also a tale of hope and faith, more significant over 70 years later than it was at the time of Anne Frank's death. Far from being only the diary of a young girl, this memoir documents the dreadful events of the time, as seen through the eyes of one profoundly affected by the events. First published in 1952, it has been translated into over 60 languages and is still considered one of the great pieces of literature.
Anne Frank (1929-1945) was a German-born Dutch-Jewish diarist and holocaust victim. She died in the concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen after over two years of hiding with her family in an attic of the warehouse that had been part of her father's business.
Includes an introduction by Eleanor Roosevelt.
