The diary of a young girl is a true story written by Anne Frank. It was 1942 in Holland and the Germans had invaded the country. During WWII the Jews were persecuted by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps. Anne Frank and her family were Jewish and they had to hide. They hid in a little room that was behind a big wardrobe in her father’s work office. But...
Personal Opinion: I think it’s an interesting book because it shows the horrors of WWII and the pain that the Jews suffered during that time. It has got a terrible ending (and the worst thing is that it is a true story) because the only survivor of Anne’s family was Otto (her father). He is the one who published his daughter’s diary. It’s an easy to read book: the vocabulary isn’t very difficult; the main theme is easy to follow... Finally, I would like to say that I love the way Anne describes every situation and her feelings.
I would recommend it to people who are interested in WWII.
