Hi everyone, I am sorry that I haven’t written a blog for ages but either I couldn’t be bothered or a really couldn’t find time do it. I know I have said this lots of times, but I really will try to write more often. Today, as you can see in the title, I am going to be writing about the diary of Anne Frank. It is a very sad and inspiring book and I absolutely loved it. Lately, I have been reading lots of books about the Nazi’s and all of them were very sad but very interesting. I would definitely recommend this book but not for children younger than nine as it could get a bit sad and tricky to read. If you like I am Malala then this is the book for you. It is about Anne’s thoughts and feelings while she hides in an annexe with seven other people for two years. Unfortunately, it has a sad ending as, in August 1944, somebody betrays the family (and the other people). Anne’s father, Otto Frank, was the only member of his immediate family who survived the holocaust. He found Anne’s diary and published it, wanting to share his daughter’s message with the world. Anne herself died in either late February or early March, a day after her sister, from typhus. It was especially sad because she died just a few weeks before the camp liberated and the war ended. Here is a photo of the book:
Sorry the photo is a bit blurry but that was the best I could do. I am going to stop writing now but I hoped you enjoyed my blog!
