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.

I'm pretty surprised with the book. I thought that it would be pretty similar than other diaries written by victims such as The diary of Rutka. But it's different because Anne Frank was hidden in a house so she didn't describe any crime that she could see with her own eyes. But she wrote about how difficult is for her to live with a lot of people and about how difficult was to get food in the balck market. In some moments, she was able to reflect about war and about her maturity.
