The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank - the haunting memoirs of a young German Jewish girl who recorded her and her family’s experience of falling victims to the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. Anne Frank’s diary has become a widely known and thoroughly read description of just how much devastation the Nazis caused to so many lives. Now, 65 years after the original publication of the diary, Viking, Penguin and Trademobile are publishing the first digital edition. The digital app will allow the reader to gain a greater emotional understanding of what Anne and her family had to go through. Anne’s thoughts and feelings will come to life as the readers follow links in the copy to experience the harsh realities of what it was like to be in hiding. The location maps by illustrator, Michael A Hill, allow the reader to click on various locations that Anne visited during her time in Amsterdam. This up to date version of an extraordinary girl’s diary has been described as, ‘an intimate record of courage and heartbreak’ and ‘a remarkable edition of the diary.’ For More information visit: http://www.penguin.co.uk/static/cs/uk/0/penguin_morningcuppa/diaryofayournggirl_release.html
