Written by Anne Frank, the
story covers three years during
World War II and immediately
afterwards. Anne, a 13-year-old
Jewish girl was forced into hiding
with her family and four other
people over a factory in Amster
dam. In two acts, three years are
lived. The play is of the lives of
these eight people and the world
that changes them. It is a mar
velous story, seen through the
eyes of a young girl growing up
during the time when age was
meaningless. It is written with
love, courage and a sense of hu
mor rare in books of this type.
Anne Frank died with her
mother, sister, and boy friend
in a concentration camp some
where in Europe. The only sur
vivor of her family was her fath
er Otto Frank, who had Anne’s
diary published. It has turned
into one of the most loved stories
ever written. The Diary of a
Young Girl has been translated
from Dutch into all the major
languages of the world and has
been made into a movie.
Anne Frank has become the
symbol of senseless persecution
and hatred throughout the world.
Foundations have been set up in
her name all over Holland, and
the refuge where she stayed has
been made into one of the chief
tourist attractions in Holland.
