        “The Diary Of A Young Girl” by Anne Frank is not a mere teenage girl’s diary entry, but is way more deep than that. This book is the personal account of the author, Anne Frank, maintained by her during her hiding in the ‘secret annex’ at the time of World War II. It will not be right to perceive it as an account of childish rambles and whines, but rather it is a wonderful literary piece, depicting the beauty and significant potential of the human mind. As you turn through the pages of this book, you get to read about the author’s opinions, thoughts and ideas on various subjects including matters of war, religion, philosophy, human relationships and desires etc, which are truly fascinating. The readers also get an idea about the instability and fragility in a teenager’s life which is quite relatable. Anne has an interesting personality and perspective towards life and the way she keeps an understanding of herself and everyone around her is intriguing. She is a courageous young lady who aspires to be a writer or a journalist on growing up and dwells on various modern-day ideas. It is absolutely enchanting to see how a girl so young has her own opinions on great topics such as world politics and how her creativity and powerful imagination are beautifully described in her own words.The book totally serves as an insightful medium for learning.

        Review“Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart. It’s utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering and death. I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness, I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too, I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquillity will return once more. ”This is my first time reading The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, but I’m sure it won’t be my last. I thought going in that this would be a tough read but it was completely the opposite. I thought that this book, in addition to the overwhelming feeling of the inevitable, was funny. It was funny and relatable. I didn’t think that I would have anything in common with this young girl whose life has been completely upended, but there were so many different moments where I felt tied to this stranger by ourshared experiences. Anne Frank finds ways to connect with her readers through her opinions and feelings in a way that is uncanny. We all know what it is like to have friends, fight with our mothers, question our sexualities, worry for our futures, hope for a fulfilling career, plan our first kiss, worry about our cats, go through puberty, and bicker with our roommates. Anne highlights her humanity even with the horrors of Hilter’s war raging around her, driving her to hiding and coming closer every day. It’s amazing to read—even know she could be caught any day, she gave herself the hope and optimism she needed to continue on.“On the contrary, beauty remains, even in misfortune. If you just look for it, you discover more and more happiness and regain your balance. A person who’s happy will make others happy; a person who has courage and faith will never die in misery!”I bought this on kindle but I am going already planning on buying a physical copy so that I can annotate my favorite quotes and showcase Anne’s personality. After all, according to Anne: “I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death!”

        One of the “must-read” books for every parent. Illuminating & inspiring read for everyoneTo me, this book became one of the most insightful, witty, well written and interesting books that I have ever read! It is almost unbelievable that the author, who possessed such a poignant mind with a very fine sense of humour, and a tremendous literary talent, was a girl of only 13-14 years of age!Anne Frank was a Jewish girl who, in 1942, together with her family and another family, went into a hiding in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation of Holland. She had written most of this diary while they stayed there (and not in the camps, as usually thought of). Two years later they were found out and arrested by the Nazi police and transported to the labor camps, where almost everyone was eventually killed or died, including Anne. The only survivor was her father. Anne’s diary was rescued by their Dutch friends just before the Nazi returned after their arrest to clean that hiding. After the war, with her father’s consent and help, Anne’s diary was published and became one of the most well known books in the world.I had not heard much about it before I started to read it, and so had no particular expectations of what it will be. Quite unlike the popular image of this book, which is usually presented as the description of the suffering of the Jews during the WWII, the horrors of labor camps, etc., it is an optimistic and highly entertaining read about the life of this teenage (13-14) girl, mostly concerned with the grown ups around her and their social behaviour in that hide; her relationships with them and her innermost feelings and anxieties; her first and second love; her self exploration during those 25 months there and the hopes and dreams that she entertained for after the war is over, when they can return to a normal life; and much, much more. Although the struggles of the war and their frequent fears in hiding are also addressed, her writing mostly remains a humorous, witty, very touching and super addictive read!So I am a little bit perplexed why so many 5* reviews here emphasise so much the terrible fortune of the many Jews during the WWII and the tragic end of Anne Frank and most of her family. Whereas these are undoubtedly the shocking facts (well described in _another_ book, “Anne Frank Remembered”), they happened after this diary was completed by Anne and thus did not influence neither the spirit nor the content of it.This book is an important read for every parent because not only does it show what an early teenager anticipates, wants and needs to see in her parents, but also describes very well on how particular character traits of the parents and other grown ups, which we as adults stop even noticing because they’re all so common, how these are perceived by children and how they form their opinions, and then of course their attitudes, towards us & life. I think it will be quite clear to everyone who reads the book that the parents-kids misunderstanding symptom, recurring in every generation, must be due not so much to the change of circumstances / technologies / opportunities / values, etc., but because too many of us, when we grow up and become parents, tend to do exactly the same things for our kids and become exactly the same characters which we ourselves despised while being young. No other book which I have read describes the yearnings and the needs of an adolescent so well and can offer so much practical insight for parents and kids alike as this one!I do not intend to repeat what is already written in some other reviews here, but to give you just one example where this book really struck me by the depth of Anne’s thought and feelings: how well (at the age of 14!) she defined what love is and what it is not. What does it mean to love someone? In one place she writes: “Love is understanding someone, caring for him, sharing his joys and sorrows”. And then few months later she adds: “To love someone, I have to admire and respect that person”. Until I read her diary I thought that the best definition of what love is was given by a renowned psychologist Erich Fromm (who actually wrote it when Anne was no more): “Love… always implies certain basic elements, common to all forms of love. These are care, responsibility, respect and knowledge”. But if you pause and slowly repeat and compare these definitions, how much more precise and resonating is this word that Anne used, “to admire” (the same word in the Russian translation)! Aren’t we all really longing for a partner, for friends and parents whom we would not only know and respect, but admire? Does not each of us yearn to live a life that is worth not only of respect, but admiration? Sometimes it happens that just one or few precise words open up the new depths of understanding and meaning. For Leo Tolstoy, a famous Russian author, 8 words spoken in the Sermon on the Mount: “Do not resist the one who is evil” (only 3 words in Russian actually) opened up the understanding of the teachings of the Gospels. As for me, this one verb, in the context of Anne’s writing about love, – to admire (not in the modern, superficial sense of admiring what is on the outside, but subtle admiration of the person’s character), – enriched my understanding of love. This is just one example which is most vivid in my memory from this book, but the truth is that at no moment I was willing to speed up my reading, or to skip any paragraph or part of it, because everything she wrote is really so captivating!P.S. Few words on the English translation. This English text is beautifully written, maybe even a bit too beautiful, too stylized compared to the original. I actually cannot compare it to the original in Dutch, but when I looked at the Russian translation, some written thoughts sounded a little less accurately formulated there; somehow it felt more believable to be closer to the writing of a 14 year old girl. Yet I did preferred to read the English version, since as long as this is a translation, I think it is alright to make it more natural & harmonious in the final language, rather than trying to find ways to retain the slight unpolished-ness of the original. Besides, English is more of a kindred language with Dutch.
