As an ordinary Jewish girl who was one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust, Anne Frank was an incredibly memorable girl due to the publication of her diary.

In July 1945, after the Red Cross confirmed the death of the Frank sisters, Otto Frank passed Anne’s diary to historians who made continuous attempts to publish it. The official publication of the diary in 1947 was named Het Achterhuis, and was later on translated into English in 1952, entitled as Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.

Anne Frank had the same problem when she gained a liking towards a boy named Peter who lived in the building, but later on throughout her entries, she began to push the thought of Peter away and replaced it with the things that really mattered, like how unbelievably close she was to her death. I’ve been inspired by Anne Frank’s style in writing and I’m willing to discover more books that hold the same sense in mesmerizing literature.
