Publisher's Description

Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has since become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. 

In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the "Secret Annex" of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death. In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short.

    The Diary of Anne Frank is a real story of a Jewish girl hiding from Nazis during World War II. It is more than a story of war. Anne's diary is exciting, funny, and moving as she writes all of her feelings about herself and the people who stay with her and her family while in hiding. She speaks of how she sees the world through her eyes, and life in general while hiding in The Secret Annex from the world of prejudice and hatred. She is a young girl in a young lady's body trying to find where she fits in. Anne and her mother do not get along while her father is the only strength she has to cling to. She feels no one understands her and see's her as a child. Anne grows to love and dislike and then love again. Within two years Anne Frank was an ordinary girl in extraordinary times. She survived for a while after her group was caught but not for very long. Anne Frank died in the concentration camp called Bergen Belsen of Typhus within a week of her sister who died of the same thing. Although she is gone Anne's spirit lives on through her diary and in our hearts.

Q: Does this book contain the sexual references I've heard are in the updated version of this story? I need to get this for my 7th grade daughter's literature class, but I want to ensure it is the original version that did not include the sexual references (apparently her father took them out before handing over her notes?). Thank you.

A:

This is the original version, published in 1952. It does not contain any updated material.
