For her 13th birthday Anne Frank received a diary she dubbed Kitty Shortly after her birthday with the fear that her older sister, Margo may be taken by the Nazis the Franks disappear into the night and go into hiding It is through Kitty that Anne records her thoughts and daily life living behind a bookcase in the secret annex.
When I was younger I went through a holocaust phase before moving on to Harriet Tubman and slavery The funny thing is that Anne Frank s Diary was not the first Holocaust book I read, I think that was The Devil s Advocate Anyway,I soon became fascinated by the Secret Annex and the secluded life she lived for two years Unfortunately she and the other occupants of the Annex were betrayed and sent to concentration camps with only her fa Honestly, I just can t do it I can t bring myself to finish the book Ive tried three times already, and each time I have been forced to put it aside books and film about the Holocaust are fascinating, but not this one Unfortunately, I was not engaged and found I couldn t care less I ll have to try it again in a few years On the up side, I firmly believe that Anne Frank, had she survived the war, would have grown up to be a marvelous, best selling writer At the age of 13 her words are better than that of many modern day, famous authors.
I confess to feeling slightly voyeuristic while reading this It was constantly in the back of my mind that this was no ordinary novel, or even a true to life account This was someone s diary Every page written in confidence, each word revealing the thoughts closest to the heart of this young girl As a journal keeper myself, I sometimes find myself wondering, What if someone else were to read this which causes me to wonder how much to filter my words But then, isn t the purpose of a diary or journal just the opposite To record one s honest and unfiltered thoughts While reading Anne Frank The Diary of a Young Girl I do not get the sense that there is any such filtering going on From the ages of 12 15 Ann If only Anne Frank s diary was the figment of someone s imagination If it meant that this spirited, intelligent and articulate girl hadn t died along with so many others in Belsen concentration camp, and that the holocaust had never happened, that would be a wonderful thing, but it did happen, and that makes the reading of this diary even heartbreaking.
For a 13 year old girl, Anne was so articulate the way she expresses her thoughts and feelings about herself and others is remarkable She s able to analyse herself in a particularly honest way, her abilities, failures, weaknesses.
As Jews in Nazi occupied Holland, Anne and her parents and sister Margot, had to flee their home in Amsterdam to escape capture From 1942 1944 they occupy rooms in an old office building, which they call The Secret Annexe Anne s diary details daily life within the confines of their safe hous Maybe the first thing that most people would get shocked is that I rate with only 3 stars one of the best selling books of the 20th century and now 21st century too and even , a book about the Holocaust.
First thing that I learned about this book is honesty.
Anne Frank teaches us all about honesty, about telling what you really think, and so I am doing the same.
For starters, I wonder how many people really, I mean REALLY read the book, because to rate with 5 stars a famous book that everybody tells you that it s a book that all people should read, and then they got in this commnunity for readers and maybe they feel the compromise to make the rest to think that you really read the book.
If not the case, hey, I don t see why anyone can be offended by this comment, and it s true, I don t see either anyone who will complain, since to me i
