Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has since become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. 

In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the “Secret Annex” of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death. In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short.

“How brilliantly Anne Frank captures the self-conscious alienation and naïve self-absorption of adolescence.”—Newsday
 विश्व की सर्वाधिक बिकने वाली पुस्तकों में से एक
यह उस युवती का मर्मस्पर्शी दस्तावेज़ है जो दूसरे विश्व युद्ध के दौरान एक यहूदी होने के नाते नाज़ी अत्याचारों की शिकार बनी. ऐन फ्रैंक का परिवार 1942 से 1944 के दरमियान एक ईमारत में स्तिथ किताबों की अलमारी के पीछे बने कुछ गुप्त कमरों में छिप कर रहा.
ऐन के तेरहवें जन्मदिन पर तोहफ़े के रूप में एक नई डायरी भेंट की गई, जिसमें वह अपने जीवन के आख़िरी दिनों तक अपनी यादें दर्ज़ करती रही. ऐन की मृत्यु 15 वर्ष की उम्र में नाज़ी कॉनसन्ट्रेशन कैम्प के टाइफस नाम की बीमारी से हुई. युद्ध समाप्त होने के पश्चात् ऐन के पिता के प्रयासों के फलस्वरूप 1947 में इस डायरी का प्रकाशन इस पुस्तक के रूप में किया गया.
युद्ध की भयावहता को दर्शाती यह पुस्तक मानवीय भावनाओं का एक आश्चर्यजनक व् दिलचस्प वृत्तांत है, जिसे द्वितीय विश्व युद्ध के बचे हुए महत्वपूर्ण दस्तावेज़ों में से एक मन जाता है. मूलतः डच भाषा में लिखी गई इस पुस्तक का 60 से अधिक भाषाओँ में अनुवाद किया जा चूका है.

"इतिहास में जितने भी लोगों ने घोर विपदा और पीड़ा के दौर में मानव गरिमा की बात की है, उनमें ऐन फ्रैंक की आवाज़ सबसे आगे है.

In the early morning of August 4th, 1944, a Nazi police car stopped at 263 Prissen Street in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. An informant had revealed the location of two Jewish families, Otto Frank and Van Dan, who were hiding out there. Both families were taken to concentration camps. Mrs. Miff Hiss, who worked for Anne’s father, visited the hiding place and discovered Anne’s diary. The diary was given to Anne from her father, Otto Frank, on June 12, 1942 for her thirteenth birthday. She wrote down every incident while hiding out for two years (June 1942 - August 1944). She expressed various aspects of her life, such as scenes of the Jewish people, criticism of adults, her relatively good attitude to live in harsh situations, and the hope of freedom. Her writings have been praised as works far beyond her age. In addition, Anne, who always wanted to be a famous author, composed a couple fairy-tales, short fictions, and essays. Her diary and all other compositions were preserved by Mrs. Hiss and delivered to her father after the surrender of Germany. They were first published in Dutch in 1947 as The Diary of Anne Frank. Since then it has been translated into many other languages and read world-wide. It is still well received as a symbol of protecting hope from violence and threats.
