Book Review: The Diary Of A Young Girl, by Anne Frank

Anne Frank, a Jewish teenage girl is forced to go into hiding with her family during Nazi regime. Fortwo years they live in "Secret Annexe" the recluse named by Anne, with four other Jews. What starts with the chirpy and girly experiences of Anne, her diary graduates towards the hopes, yearning for freedom, teenage tiff with parents and gloom of a caged youth.
I have read about the World Wars in history classes during school and could only understand that the countries were fighting; some good some bad but never could have known the agony of children like Anne, their innocence and dreams torn apart by war and hatred. Her words changed my thoughts that there was no good or bad, but only suffering. Anne Frank was a brave young girl and her strength shines throughout the book. Her story should be known by all humanity.
