Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, a vivid, personal account regarding the persecution of Jews during the Holocaust, is annually read by millions of readers. The diary of Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl forced into hiding alongside her family, is set during World War II and chronicles Anne’s maturation during a harrowing period of history. Anne’s diary begins prior to her family’s forced seclusion in an Amsterdam annex and continues throughout the two years they spend in hiding. Anne Frank covers not only Anne’s fears of the surrounding danger, but many matters personal to her, such as Anne’s developing feelings for a boy and her strained relationships with other household members, notably her mother. Anne’s diary entries range from teenage angst to incredibly introspective reflections on human nature. Anne Frank has garnered acclaim not only because it is a non-fictional account of the Holocaust, but also due to its eloquent writer, who presents an enlightening perspective of a girl who is forced to mature at a rapid rate.
