I always thought I had an obligation to read this a chore to honor the dead by reading what I expected to be a stuffy prissy cardboard saint sort of a book Boy was I dead wrong What an amazing writer and observer Balanced between observation humor biting wit recording events the backdrop of the war evolving feelings and Imagining life in a Secret Annex surrounded by fear with the occasional distant events of the Holocaust recounted would make it an obligatory record of a historical moment And all of that is there But it is much interesting as a girl's evolving relationship with her parents her sister the boy that is living with her and her wry and humorous observations about how all of them get together And an amazing real time record of the maturation of her writing and observation as it is written from when she was 13 through 15 Over the course of the book Anne talks about what she is reading and studying her passion for mythology and all of which shows in the way she constructs and understands her own storyIt makes her fate all the cruel I would love to read everything else she wrote over the course of a lifetime Sadly it is just this and Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex A Collection of Her Short Stories Fables and Lesser Known Writings which I'll be reading very soon if not next

READ The Diary of a Young Girl

The Diary of a Young GirlHiding in the back of an Amsterdam warehouseAged 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 prisonersAn intimate record of tension and struggle adolescence and confinement anger and heartbreak this is the definitive edition of the diary of Anne Frank. 71142 Not being able to go outside upsets me than I can say and I’m terrified our hiding place will be discovered and that we’ll be shot That of course is a fairly dismal prospectI read The Diary of a Young Girl when I was 13 That version of her diary was brief and edited to remove both references to sex and negative comments about the other seven residents of the Annex The Diary of Anne Frank The Definitive Edition is 30% longer than Young Girl and includes material that her father had removed from the first book; it also calls the other members of the Annex and their helpers by their real names Her helpers deserve credit for what they didIn this reading I was most interested in Anne's response to being imprisoned for 26 months in the Annex Anne and her family were safe and relatively privileged in the Annex – although unable to open windows flush toilets during the day or step outside According to her the adults tended toward argumentative judgy and selfish She was as she later described herself a pleasant amusing but superficial girl who has nothing to do with me 3744Over the course of her stay in the Annex Anne went from superficial and avoidant of intimacy while blaming that on others to empathic thoughtful insightful and searching for real intimacy 12244 I want to reexamine the van Daans and decide for myself what’s true and what’s been blown out of proportion If I wind up being disappointed in them I can always side with Father and Mother But if not I can try to change their attitude And if that doesn’t work I’ll have to stick with my own opinions and judgment I’ll take every opportunity to speak openly to Mrs van D about our many differences and not be afraid — despite my reputation as a smart aleck — to offer my impartial opinion I won’t say anything negative about my own family though that doesn’t mean I won’t defend them if somebody else does and as of today my gossiping is a thing of the pastAnne's interests are not typical of most young teens – she was 14 here51644 Shorthand in French English German and Dutch geometry algebra history geography art history mythology biology Bible history Dutch literature; likes to read biographies dull or exciting and history books sometimes novels and light readingAnne's sunny optimism and witty response to misfortune makes her a fun read even when we know the outcome6244 I also have a brand new prescription for gunfire jitters When the shooting gets loud proceed to the nearest wooden staircase Run up and down a few times making sure to stumble at least once What with the scratches and the noise of running and falling you won’t even be able to hear the shooting much less worry about itWe tend to think that trauma destroys people People like Anne Frank remind us that trauma can transform That transformation is not a passive process but reuires determination courage and a sense of meaning and purpose even when those ualities seem not to make sense71544 It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals they seem so absurd and impractical Yet I cling to them because I still believe in spite of everything that people are truly good at heart My 12 year old granddaughter downloaded both The Diary of Anne Frank and The Tattooist of Auschwitz to my kindle account without asking She raced through both How can I complain when these are her choices
