Het Achterhuis (Diary of Anne Frank) - front cover, first edition-1-
The Diary of a Young Girl (also known as The Diary of Anne Frank) is a book of the writings from the Dutch language diary kept by Anne Frank while she was in hiding for two years with her family in the Amsterdam "Achterhuis" during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. The family was apprehended in 1944 and Anne Frank ultimately died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany. The diary was retrieved by Miep Gies, who gave it to Anne's father, Otto Frank, the only survivor of the Achterhuis. The diary has now been published in more than 60 different languages.

Anne Berkowitz (née Frank), was a survivor of the Holocaust. She was saved from the genocide through the help of Dutch friends who hid her and her family, along with others, in the Secret Annexe. During her time of refuge, she wrote a diary detailing her experiences.

A student named Vicki from a Junipero Middle School class, who were visiting an elderly Berkowitz, asked her what she had done with the diary. She revealed that she had thrown the book away because it reminded her too much of her bad experiences during the war.
