Un testimonio único sobre el horror y la barbarie, y una celebración del espíritu humano y las ganas de vivir
 
Diario de una adolescente es una de las biografías más queridas de todos los tiempos, además de uno de los documentos más perdurables del siglo XX. Desde su publicación en 1947, continua cautivando a lectores de todas las edades y ha sido leído por millones de personas en todo el mundo.
 
En junio de 1942, tras la invasión Nazi de Holanda, los 8 miembros de la familia Frank, se ocultaron en una buhardilla anexa al edificio donde el padre de Anne tenía sus oficinas. Allí permanecieron recluidos hasta agosto de 1944, fecha en que fueron detenidos y enviados a campos de concentración. En ese lugar y en las más precarias condiciones, Anne Frank, con tan solo trece años, escribió su estremecedor Diario. Descubierto poco tiempo después en ese mismo ático, Diario de una adolescente captura el admirable espíritu de Anne y su familia, mientras sobreviven al horror más grande que el mundo moderno había visto sin jamás perder su sobrecogedora  humanidad.

The only girl I've ever loved was born with roses in her eyesBut then they buried her alive,one evening 1945, with just her sister at her side.(Neutral Milk Hotel - Holland, 1945)It's such a shame that as a Dutchman I've never read the diary of Anne Frank up until recently, as it not only describes such an important milestone in history from such a special perspective, but is also a touching and very personal written analysis of herself and the people surrounding her in the 'achterhuis'. Anne has an almost awkward and very adult self-awareness and knows how to describe it inch-perfect. Somewhere in the diary Anne writes about becoming a journalist, or even a writer. Not only did the world lose an innocent young girl, it also lost a great talent who kept my eyes glued to the pages right up until the sad, sad epilogue.read more

"Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl" is to powerful to be adequately expressed in words. At the end I was in tears and so sad. The power in the story is not just not that Anne Frank dies in a concentration camp (I don't think this is a spoiler since it should be common knowledge) but in the hope and fear that Frank express throughout the diary.The story is compelling because Anne Frank the reader gets to see a 13 year old girl develop while hiding in a back attic (apartment) during the holocaust. The reader gets to see her go though all the emotional and developmental changes that teenage girls go through. They get to read about her dream of being a reporter. Her appreciation for the Dutch people for not only hiding them but taking them in as refuges before the Germans conquered the country. Anne expresses her disassociation with her parents and the mixed feelings that age and Independence bring to the parent-child relationship. It is all there pain, hope, frustration, happiness. Even knowing how Anne's story ends I couldn't help but hoping for her.On another note: I really enjoy reading not only nonfiction books but also historical fiction but sometimes they put the world in order. For instance I know the time period that the holocaust happen. I know about Gandhi. But to put them together and to see how Gandhi's words affected Anne Frank and her family is eye opening. When in school there is a tendency to look at bits and pieces of history and disconnect places and events. Reading story like this mesh them together and gives people a boarder more encompassing view of the world.Pros: Writing, Characters, EverythingCons: SadOverall Recommendation:I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It is most definitely now a favorite book. It is a real tear jerkier so keep a box of tissues with you and don't read it in a public place.read more

To be brutally honest, I did not like “Anne Frank: the Diary of a Young Girl” that much. Sorry. There are so many books about the Holocaust (yes, the event is a capitalized word—the lowercase word is something different) out there, and this was not the first I read. As a result, perhaps, I think there are a lot of books that can, and do, do better than this one to make the events “hit home”. It found it somewhat uneventful; but of course, my life would be uneventful, too, if I lived in an annex and could barely ever make contact with the world! I can’t blame her for that, of course. Some of the events that did take place involved fights or Anne getting mad at her mother or sister, which I found to be kind of trivial. Maybe part of the “blahness” is due to editing in order to make the book more acceptable? I notice there is a “newly” translated “definitive” edition out there, which could be different than the version I read.I also found it extremely girly—I can’t deny that Anne Frank was example of a normal girl in a rather unique situation, so most women can more easily identify, I suppose. And I can’t deny that she was very insightful and smart. I, however, was never really into the whole pouring-my-heart-out-into-a-diary kind of thing, nor much “inspirational” writing. As I mentioned, I had read similar insightful stories about the Holocaust before (and shortly after) this one, so her maturity didn’t jump out at me and seem so profound. I’m sure this also contributes to why I couldn’t identify with/ didn’t like this book so much.It’s good if you want something “inspirational”, and want to learn a bit about life in the Holocaust without reading about too many of the death facts, politics, whatever (naturally, being a kid in an annex, she was sheltered from much of it). Personally, I like something that has more of a mix of the two ends.read more

When people talk about the holocaust, they usually talk about the concentration camps. While it's true that Anne Frank's life was ended in one, that's not what this book is about. Her diary shows us things we often don't think about. It shows us the daily life of people who went into hiding, and it also shows us the thoughts and feelings of a girl growing up in that time. Anne Frank wasn't really any different than girls who are now the age she was then. She had many of the same fears and dreams. Because this is her actual diary, it puts a face on the people who suffered during that time. It brings them out of the pages of history books and makes them as real as our own families.

Anne Frank's Diary is essential - something that every person ought to read at least once, if not keep on hand for later rereads. As a young girl, it touched me to read through it and experience a little of the horror of the time via someone who was about my age. Now, I read it and still secretly hope every time that the ending will be different, even though I know better. I have a love for the book and for the person who wrote it in girlish innocence and hope.

 I fail to see the allure of this book. It offers very little insight on the war, Judaism during the war, or perspectives on the Holocaust. It is largely a character study (and a good one at that), but sadly I have no interest in the whiny rambling of a self-absorbed teenager. I teach high school and have rarely seen such an obnoxious child. I'm loathe to imagine how horrible she would have been if she hadn't been separated from all of her "boyfriends."
