Anne Frank, a German Jewish girl, fled with her parents and sister to Amsterdam. In 1942, on her thirteenth birthday, she receives a diary gift. On this day, she writes for the first time in the book. She tells her adventures in the form of letters she wrote to an imaginary friend, Kitty. The Diary of Anne Frank: The Revised Critical Edition has become a modern classic. It stands alone as the moving testimony of a young girl whose world collapsed around her in the nightmare of Hitler’s Final Solution.
