A truly remarkable book. The New York Times

The new edition reveals a new depth to Anne s dreams, irritations, hardship, and passions. . . . There may be no better way to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II than to reread The Diary of a Young Girl, a testament to an indestructible nobility of spirit in the face of pure evil. Chicago Tribune 

The single most compelling personal account of the Holocaust . . . remains astonishing and excruciating. The New York Times Book Review

How brilliantly Anne Frank captures the self-conscious alienation and naïve self-absorption of adolescence. Newsday
