The Diary of Anne Frank

In this 100% true story, Anne Frank is a young Jewish girl who loves to write living in Holland. Then World War II comes along, and her life changes forever. Her family (including parents Otto and Edith, and older sister Margot) must go into hiding in order to save themselves from Hitler and the Nazis' wrath upon Jews. The Franks also hide with another family, the Van Daans, and a Jewish dentist, Mr. Albert Dussel. While in hiding for two years (from 1942-1944), readers will see Anne change and mature as she chronicles events from their "Secret Annexe" in her beloved diary (whom she names "Kitty"). 
   Readers will most definitely cry at the end of this true story told through Anne's point of view. Some parts are funny; others are quite serious. The Diary of Anne Frank, recommended for readers of all ages, will certainly change people's view on the world: truly a life-changing book.
