Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl ("The House Behind" in its original title in German) is one of the most shocking narrations among the stories of the Nazi occupation.

It tells the life of Anne Frank, a thirteen-year-old girl who runs away from her home in Amsterdam to hide. She reveals the relationships between eight people living in miserable conditions: facing hunger, threat of discovery and the worst horrors the modern world has ever seen.

In these pages, she grows into a young woman and a wise observer of human nature.

Anne shares an incomparable bond with her diary, which contains a detailed account of her close relationship with her father, her lack of love for her mother, her admiration for her sister's intelligence, and her closeness with her friend Peter.

The story of Anne Frank offers a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and energetic young woman who becomes thoughtful and learns of the many horrors of the world.

It is also a unique revelation of its kind about the horror and atrocity committed by Nazism, and about the impact that this barbarity had on the life of Anne and her family.
