The Diary of a Young Girl represents the private thoughts and notes of Anne Frank, a young teenage girl hiding with her family from the Nazis in Amsterdam in the 1940s. After two years of hiding, Nazis discovered Anne Frank and her family, and she left behind her diary and loose notes. Friends of the family collected these notes and gave them to Otto Frank, Anne’s father and the only surviving member of the Frank family, following World War II. Otto Frank edited and published his daughter’s diary in 1947. The memoir has since been translated into 67 languages and sold more than 30 million copies — making it one of the best selling books of all time.
