  Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

Review by: Emily L.
Maryland, Grade 4

This is a great book! It was sad, but it made me care more about history and how unfair Jews were treated during World War II. I would recommend this to anyone who can read sad books and anyone who likes history. Go on a miraculous journey of endurance. Anne Frank, a 13 year old Jewish girl and her family lived during World War II. Many Jews were captured and sent to concentration camp. Anne and her family hid in the “Secret Annexe”, a small place behind a bookshelf in Mr. Frank’s office for 3 years.

This is a sad but interesting story. Jews had many restrictions. Life then was hard and full of melancholy. Anne was found and sent to a concentration camp and died at age 16. The war ended a few months later. Each day of hiding they worried of being found. They finally were. Only Otto Frank, Anne Frank’s father was the only one in the family that was alive at the end of World War II.

Even though Anne Frank died at an early age, her diary still tells of life as a Jewish girl during World War II is hard, unfair, tragic, and sad. It tells us that many Jews died because they were Jewish. Anne Frank wrote her diary for herself, not knowing that later her diary would become a big part in history.
