This book is the real diary of a teenage Jewish girl named Anne Frank. The Diary begins on Anne’s 13th birthday on 12 June 1942 when she receives it as a birthday present and ends when Anne is fifteen years old. It focuses on the life and world of Anne Frank who is forced to go into hiding with her family in Amsterdam to avoid German persecution during World War II.

The Diary tells us about the persecution of Jews by the Nazis in war-ridden Europe from the viewpoint of a young Jewish girl. Anne Frank’s diary highlights her dreams, love, despair, emotional conflict and never ending optimism even when the odds are stacked heavily against Anne and her family. The most important message in this book is that people have the right to live in freedom.
