One of the most famous accounts of living under the Nazi regime of World War II comes from the diary of a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl, Anne Frank. Today, "The Diary of a Young Girl" has sold over 25 million copies world-wide. It is one of the most celebrated and enduring books of the last century and it remains a deeply admired testament to the indestructible nature of human spirit. Anne Frank and her family fled the horrors of Nazi occupation by hiding in the back of a warehouse in Amsterdam for two years with another family and a German dentist. Aged thirteen when she went into the secret annexe, Anne kept a diary. She movingly revealed how the eight people living under these extraordinary conditions coped with hunger, the daily threat of discovery and death and being cut off from the outside world, as well as petty misunderstandings and the unbearable strain of living like prisoners. "The Diary of a Yong Girl" is a timeless true story to be rediscovered by each new generation. For young readers and adults it continues to bring to life Anne's extraordinary courage and struggle throughout her ordeal. "One of the greatest books of the century". ("Guardian"). "A modern classic". ("The Times"). "Rings down the decades as the most moving testament to the persecution of innocence". ("Daily Mail"). "Astonishing and excruciating. Its gnaws at us still". ("New York Times Book Review"). Anne Frank was born on 12 June 1929. She died in Bergen-Belsen, three months short of her sixteenth birthday.
