Seventy years since Anne began her diary . . . '12th 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 the summer of 1942, fleeing the horrors of the Nazi occupation, Anne Frank and her family were forced into hiding in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse. Aged thirteen when she went into the secret annexe, Anne kept a diary in which she confided her innermost thoughts and feelings, movingly revealing how the eight people living under these extraordinary conditions coped with the daily threat of discovery and death, being cut off from the outside world, petty misunderstandings and the unbearable strain of living like prisoners. An intimate record of tension and struggle, adolescence and confinement, anger and heartbreak, this is the definitive edition of the diary of Anne Frank. '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 'A monument to the human spirit.' Mail on Sunday
