Think of beauty still left around you and be happy…-Anne Frank
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.
I read this when i was in class 8.We were supposed to read this in our summer vacations.3 years later today i have again ordered this book.I am truly very small in rating this book as its not something for pleasure.It`s the bitter truth of past and how people suffered so much.This was actually not supposed to be a diary but Anne Frank`s father,a survivor of the war published this.Its an amazing diary of a little girl who died at a young age of 15.How jews were treated so badly.
This book is not just meant for reading but understanding as well.Jews are equal as all of us.Hence we should give them equal respect and love.Discrimination on these basis should be eradicated from the roots so that the world doesn`t has to face such kind of a horrendous past.See below the real pictures of Anne Frank`s memory….
So do read this book,its excellent.I`ll rate it a 10/10 because i simply loved it.Do tell me your views on this.Happy reading to all the bookaholics……. 🙂
