Diary of a Young Girl
Diary of a Young Girl | Anne Frank
For almost fifty years, Anne Frank's diary has moved millions with its testament to the human spirit's indestructibility, but readers have never seen the full text of this beloved book--until now. This new translation, performed by Winona Ryder, restores nearly one third of Anne's entries excised by her father in previous editions, revealing her burgeoning sexuality, her stormy relationship with her mother, and more.

• Not the jolliest of reads, for sure, but a diary-memoir we should all experience... •

Diary of a Young Girl | Anne Frank

"My arguments were that talking is a feminine characteristic and that I would do my best to keep it under control, but I should never be cured, for my mother talked as much as I, probably more, and what can one do about inherited qualities?"

I read this between Aug 10 & 25th. I gave it 4 ⭐️ on Good Reads. This was a re-read for me. I had first read it some 30 years ago. I think it‘s an important document to read, especially for teens. I wish that I had found the “definitive” edition but regardless the diary is an important historical document.

It‘s hard to put into words what this book made me feel. Through diary entries, it feels as if you‘ve become friends with Anne by the end. Knowing what happened to her shortly after the book ends is just heartbreaking. It‘s especially distressing to know that we haven‘t adequately learned or passed along the lessons to our children/grandchildren to love each other for our differences, rather than be fearful of them. ✌️💡❤️ Rest In Peace Anne Frank

cariashley 😞 I‘m going to the Anne Frank house in a few weeks when I visit Amsterdam. Thinking a reread of this is in order. 4mo
keys_on_fire @cariashley I just was there in June! Truly an incredible experience. I only wish I had thought to read the book first, so I would totally recommend a reread! 4mo

I just love Anne Frank so much she is so inspirational to me and is a rly great role model for dealing with tough times. Who is ur role model rn

royallyregan93 I love her too. So much, indeed, that I‘ve got the original, the unedited, and the graphic novel of her diary! 😂 (edited) 5mo
Annie_Belle_Ravenclaw7 @royallyregan93 that is so cool! I have the graphic novel and the original too plus a bunch of biographies and magazines, she‘s an amazing role model 5mo
royallyregan93 That‘s amazing! My favorite picture in the graphic novel is where the diary is in the form of a shadowed girl and Anne is whispering to her. That is such an amazing illustration for a young girl who writes all her private thoughts and feelings in a diary. 5mo
Annie_Belle_Ravenclaw7 @royallyregan93 I wholeheartedly agree! It‘s like the artist was trying to portray that Anne had a close friend in the diary, and she did😃 5mo

OK I‘M AWARE THAT I TALK A LOT ABOUT BOOKS BUT PLEASE BEAR WITH MY LARGE JEWISH EMOTIONS FOR THIS POST THANK YOU. So we all know this is Anne Frank‘s B. I‘m going to consider this an award winner for several reasons, though the diary itself did not literally receive an award, I feel that it wouldn‘t make sense – works based on it won many, though, and out of it came The Anne Frank Award, among others. Comments to follow. #LAE3414sp19

cwright Depending on the teacher‘s approach/background knowledge, it could be a historical AS, but like any AS, research should be monitored by the teacher. It could also be a GR, which I recommend. I don‘t understand why some places in the world do not teach about the Holocaust at all. I strongly believe that this book should be introduced in elementary. Not only is it NF unlike the usual Number the Stars (still worth a read), but Anne‘s — 9mo
cwright — perspective makes it more relatable and age-appropriate than many other NF pieces of Holocaust literature. The greater the connection to one‘s personal life, the more the lesson is absorbed, and wherever we can inspire a student to think about making actual change, we should go out of our way to. 9mo
cwright http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/blog-anne-frank-t... This lesson will pull from ESOL 3, 10, 11, 12, 32, and 48 and UDL 7.1, 8.3, 9.1, and 5.2. It essentially challenges the student to relate to Anne, but not in the insensitive way that many LPs about marginalized people‘s experiences (e.g. slavery) do. At the root, it compares the spread of information today to pre-Internet and 24-hour news coverage. 9mo
See All 8 Comments
cwright That can be done with or without information on Nazi propaganda, which may or may not be appropriate for the class needs. It ultimately, of course, relates literature to social studies, and in turn, relates Anne‘s motives to real life and their actual goals by challenging them to also write from the heart for an audience. 9mo
cwright Also depending on the class needs, the teacher could provide broad topics for the class to choose a more specific issue to write new information about weekly that could range from anything like tech in the classroom, standardized testing, or a relevant community issue. I would randomly assign students to read and comment on each other‘s blogs for the duration of the project. 9mo
cwright TL;DR: Holocaust curriculum needs to start early and be taught responsibly and in a way that students can relate to TODAY, especially with current events. The whole point of the “never again” message is to make sure that this never happens again, so don‘t let it. 9mo
Edenmonet This Anne Frank book looks great! I feel it‘s important for students to learn about children in history that made a big impact, especially someone like Anne Frank. I like how your lesson plan allows the students to view Anne Frank as an author and a historian. 8mo
DrSpalding Noted! Technically the holocaust should be touched upon in fifth grade utilizing quality children‘s literature like, as you mentioned Number the Stars and wonderful biographies like this. Another excellent resource and your passion for reading in general is inspiring. 8mo

I ordered this beautiful book to add to my shelf- and decided to reread it. Wow! It is still as powerful as I remember it being the first time I read this as a teen. I feel that I read an abridged version the first time- there are entries that I feel I‘m reading for the first time. Anybody feel the same about this (or another) book you read as both a child and later as an adult?

“It‘s difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It‘s a wonder I haven‘t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.”—Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl🕯

Such a moving tale about a young girl, wise beyond her years, going into hiding with her family to escape the Nazis. The book ends so abruptly and it really does make you think and appreciate your life for what it is; because as this book shows, things could be a lot worse.

I tried reading it once before, I just couldn't read it. But I am really glad I gave it another try. The ending made me really sad... To know that so many innocent lives have been lost... The book shows the real life of a real teenager who was forced to endure so much difficulties in so short a life...

This book is incredible, eye-opening, honest, funny, and sad. I have always wanted to read this one and now that I can check it off as read I‘d like to take some time to really think about the subject matter. I will just say that I‘m amazed by the wisdom of such a young girl and it‘s incredible that her story is still being read today.
