Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl

The Diary of a Young Girl - B.M. Mooyaart, Eleanor Roosevelt, Anne Frank I recently bought this at one of the Salvation Army's shops here in Norway, and I knew that I had no longer an excuse not to read this book. I've been postponing it for very long, and I don't even know why.Anne Frank was a very reflected young girl. I was nowhere near that reflected when I was thirteen, I don't think I'm that reflected now either though.It's absolutely heartbreaking to read this Diary, and know that Anne Frank was a living person and not a work of fiction. It's good to read it, and it's good that the book is out there, but it's also terrifying. Because it underlines heavily what actually happened during the war, and it scares me, because history has a bad habit of repeating itself.Another useless review by me.
