Editorial Reviews

"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 indestructivle nobility of  spirit in the face of pure  evil."-Chicago Tribune
