This book is a biography about a Jewish girl named Anne Frank. The Frank family were persecuted Jew during the reign of Adolf Hitler. The Frank family hid from the Nazi's for two years, until they were captured and all taken to concentration camps. This book is voiced by Anne Frank and talks about her life in hiding for two years up until she was taken by the Nazis. This book has notable features such as the very accurate and descriptive language the author uses. I would use this book as an instructional application during a history lesson over WWII. ( )

This book is about a girl (Anne Frank) and her personal story of going through the holocaust. She gives her own experiences of what she had to go through. A teacher can use this as a mentor text to support a unit of World War II and the holocaust. It can also be used to create empathy with the students because Anne was close to their age when she wrote her diary.

Anne Frank was a young girl in the time of World war 2. Her diary was from the point of view from someone living in the time of the Holocaust.I found this book informative and deeply sad yet happy.It took my on a bit of an emotional roller coaster.I would recommend this book for people doing research on the Holocaust or on Anne Frank herself. This book will be one that you simply cannot forget and will always remember. The genre is historical. Anne Frank was a real person with real feelings that you can relate to and understand. If you don't read this book, I'll have to make you read it myself,it's so good!

This is a story written by a Jewish girl, named Anne Frank, during World War II. It is written through diary entries about her hopes, fears, dreams, and realities of the world that following apart around her. Her family is living in an attic with another family, and Anne explains the good times and bad times during their stay. At the end of the book both families get caught, and were sent to different concentration camps.
I would classify this as an auto-biography, as it is a true story written by Anne Frank.
I would read this to sixth grade and older.
  Michaiah.Annear | Apr 10, 2017 |
Anne Frank is a girl from the Holocaust who wrote about her life during the Event. She explains how lonely she was and how she was always hiding unfortunately she did not make it to survive. This is historic realism because its from the past and its areal event that took place.

It is a truly remarkable book. Its revelation of the emotional turmoil and intellectual growth of an adolescent girl during extraordinarily difficult circumstances is psychologically fascinating. Its portrayal of ordinary people under frightful nervous strain and perpetual forced intimacy is wise and perceptive. Anne was precociously mature in her understanding of both herself and of others.
 
Anne Frank's diary is too tenderly intimate a book to be frozen with the label "classic," and yet no lesser designation serves... But her book is not a classic to be left on the library shelf. It is a warm and stirring confession, to be read over and over for insight and enjoyment.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553296981, Mass Market Paperback)

A beloved classic since its initial publication in 1947, this vivid, insightful journal is a fitting memorial to the gifted Jewish teenager who died at Bergen-Belsen, Germany, in 1945. Born in 1929, Anne Frank received a blank diary on her 13th birthday, just weeks before she and her family went into hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. Her marvelously detailed, engagingly personal entries chronicle 25 trying months of claustrophobic, quarrelsome intimacy with her parents, sister, a second family, and a middle-aged dentist who has little tolerance for Anne's vivacity. The diary's universal appeal stems from its riveting blend of the grubby particulars of life during wartime (scant, bad food; shabby, outgrown clothes that can't be replaced; constant fear of discovery) and candid discussion of emotions familiar to every adolescent (everyone criticizes me, no one sees my real nature, when will I be loved?). Yet Frank was no ordinary teen: the later entries reveal a sense of compassion and a spiritual depth remarkable in a girl barely 15. Her death epitomizes the madness of the Holocaust, but for the millions who meet Anne through her diary, it is also a very individual loss. --Wendy Smith
