Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl is the published version of the real-life diary of Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl who lived in Amsterdam during WWII. The majority of the diary dates from the time when Anne and her family, along with another Jewish family, were in hiding during the Nazi occupation. From 1942 to 1944, Anne lived in secret and wrote in her diary, which remains a touching coming-of-age wartime record. Anne, who died in a concentration camp after her discovery, remains a reminder of the nameless millions who were murdered by the Nazis.
