Anne's story is the eternal story of Hope in the greatest darkness.

Living On

by Bunny on Oct 3, 2010

It wasn't the most exciting book and a little boring at times. But its a diary, she didn't intend for it to be a book. That only thing that gets to me is how there was so much going on, and she doesn't write about it until she has too. But at the end of the book, I felt really happy for her. Since in one of her diary pages she talks about how she wants to live her life and be know for something. And how she wants to live on after shes gone. And now she is:)

Mesmerizing!

by Beebe1 on Feb 19, 2009

Throughout the reading of this diary, I kept wishing the world could have known Anne Frank as the gifted writer she was already becoming. Whether she felt fear, hope, love, exasperation or flashes of joy, she made me feel them. My children read this diary in high school. I am grateful to have read it as an older adult and suggest it is worth a re-read every few years. It shows the indomitability of the human spirit.

a tribute to Anne Frank

by Ron Townsend on Jul 9, 2007

I reread Anne Frank's book over and over again. I don't know of any testimony of the war and the dilemma of the Jewish people that is so fresh and honest as this one. Not only is she becoming a woman but she is also becoming a writer and it is a tragedy that she was lost to the world so young. I suppose that she died about the time she would be doing her bat mizvah. I only have this to say. We all have learned a tremendous amount about how terror works it's deadly deeds and for Anne to still be in a positive mood at the end of her life is a testimony to virtue. Together with Simon Wiesenthal and Victor Frankl she belongs to a group of Jewish Holocaust writers that will be here forever. 100 years from now we will still be looking into Anne Frank's life and marveling at her candor.
