In 1942, Anne Frank and her family fleeing the horrors of Nazi occupation, hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse. Over the next two years, Anne describes in her diary her frustrations at being confined, hungry, bored and the threat of discovery.

Her diary ends when they are discovered in 1944 ...

Though she never lived to see her 16th birthday, Anne Frank's innermost thoughts scribbled on scraps of paper challenge us, and shame us, many years after her death. Her life serves as eulogy to the millions of children who perished in World War II.

 

After the war, when it was clear Anne had not survived, the diary was returned to Otto Frank, and he was persuaded to publish it. Fifty years later, it is still an international bestseller.

Anne Frank’s name is known around the world - the narrow canal side house where she hid is a museum that is visited by more than 600,000 people a year.

Since its initial publication in 1947, The Diary of Anne Frank has sold more than 25 million copies, one of the best-selling books of all time. A beloved classic since its publication, this vivid, insightful journal is a fitting memorial to the gifted Jewish teenager who died at Bergen-Belsen, Germany, in 1945 - a victim of Nazi Genocide during World War 2.
