Sinopse

Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is an inspiring and tragic account of an ordinary life lived in extraordinary circumstances that has enthralled readers for generations. This Penguin Modern Classics edition is edited by Otto H. Frank and Mirjam Pressler, translated by Susan Massotty, and includes an introduction by Elie Wiesel, author of Night.

'June, 1942: I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.'

In Amsterdam, in the summer of 1942, the Nazis forced teenager Anne Frank and her family into hiding. For over two years, they, another family and a German dentist lived in a 'secret annexe', fearing discovery. All that time, Anne kept a diary. Since its publication in 1947, Anne Frank's diary has been read by tens of millions of people. This Definitive Edition restores substantial material omitted from the original edition, giving us a deeper insight into Anne Frank's world. Her curiosity about her emerging sexuality, the conflicts with her mother, her passion for Peter, a boy whose family hid with hers, and her acute portraits of her fellow prisoners reveal Anne as more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever.

Autor

Anne Frank

Escrito entre 12 de junho de 1942 e 1 de agosto de 1944, O Diário de Anne Frank foi publicado pela primeira vez em 1947, por iniciativa de seu pai, revelando ao mundo o dia a dia de dois longos anos de uma adolescente forçada a esconder-se, juntamente com a sua família e um grupo de outros judeus, durante a ocupação nazi da cidade de Amesterdão.

Todos os que se encontravam naquele pequeno anexo secreto acabaram por ser presos em agosto de 1944, e em março de 1945 Anne Frank morreu no campo de concentração de Bergen-Belsen, a escassos dois meses do final da guerra na Europa. O seu diário tornar-se-ia um dos livros de não ficção mais lidos em todo o mundo, testemunho incomparável do terror da guerra e do fulgor do Espírito humano.
