This is a real diary of a teenage girl which starts from Anne's thirteenth birthday(12th June 1942) when she gets her diary. She was from Frankfurt, Germany but had to flee from there as a result of Hilter's and the Nazi party's treatment of Jews. Her family escaped to Amsterdam where they lived with the other Jewish people. The diary suddenly ends on 1st August 1944.
I liked how amidst the situation which was prevalent at that interval, Anne was very cheerful and inquisitive. She loved to write and comment on other people living there. Sometimes, she could be very selfish as well. Her diary showed how worse the situation was and how they had to live without catching someone's attention.
Though there are many messages the diary gives, the most important message is that everyone, irrespective of their caste, religion, race, or gender, has a right to live in freedom. It shows how worse the situation can be for people considered inferior to live in fear of dying. I would recommend this book to all those who love to read historical, war, and mystery books.
