At last, in a new translation, this definitive edition contains entries about Annes burgeoning sexuality and confrontations with her mother that were cut from previous editions. Anne Franks The Diary of a Young Girl is among the most enduring documents of the twentieth century. Since its publication in 1947, it has been a beloved and deeply admired monument to the indestructible nature of the human spirit, read by millions of people and translated into more than fifty-five languages. Doubleday, which published the first English translation of the diary in 1952, now offers a new translation that captures Annes youthful spirit and restores the original material omitted by Annes father, Ottoapproximately thirty percent of the diary. The elder Frank excised details about Annes emerging sexuality, and about the often-stormy relations between Anne and her mother.
Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation forces, hid in the back of an Amsterdam office building for two years. This is Annes record of that time. She was thirteen when the family went into the "Secret Annex," and in these pages, she grows to be a young woman and proves to be an insightful observer of human nature as well. A timeless story discovered by each new generation, The Diary of a Young Girl stands without peer. For young readers and adults, it continues to bring to life this young woman, who for a time survived the worst horrors the modern world had seenand who remained triumphantly and heartbreakingly human throughout her ordeal.
The New York Times
"One of the most moving personal documents to come out of World War II."
The Philadelphia Inquirer
"The new edition reveals a new depth to Annes dreams, irritations, hardship, and passions. . . . There may be no better way to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II than to reread The Diary of a Young Girl, a testament to an indestructible nobility of spirit in the face of pure evil."
"The single most compelling personal account of the Holocaust . . . remains astonishing and excruciating."
The New York Times Book Review
"How brilliantly Anne Frank captures the self-conscious alienation and naïve self-absorption of adolescence."
