Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is an inspiring and tragic account of an ordinary life lived in extraordinary circumstances that has enthralled readers for generations.

This Penguin Modern Classics edition is edited by Otto H.

Frank and Mirjam Pressler, translated by Susan Massotty, and includes an introduction by Elie Wiesel, author of Night. 'June, 1942: I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.'In Amsterdam, in the summer of 1942, the Nazis forced teenager Anne Frank and her family into hiding.

For over two years, they, another family and a German dentist lived in a 'secret annexe', fearing discovery.

All that time, Anne kept a diary. Since its publication in 1947, Anne Frank's diary has been read by tens of millions of people.

This Definitive Edition restores substantial material omitted from the original edition, giving us a deeper insight into Anne Frank's world.

Her curiosity about her emerging sexuality, the conflicts with her mother, her passion for Peter, a boy whose family hid with hers, and her acute portraits of her fellow prisoners reveal Anne as more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever.
