On the somber 70th anniversary of the day Anne Frank began her diary, TIME tells us something about the publication history of her important literary contribution: The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank — excerpted from a new book: Anne Frank: The Diary at 70.

This article is for writers, as well as Holocaust historians. It references author Philip Roth’s opinion of the revisions Frank had made of her diary. It tells you which tidbits were left out at publication. It illuminates the historical period that surrounds the aftermath of extermination camps.


“It was 75 years ago — on June 12, 1942 — that Anne Frank received a diary for her 13th birthday. Within a few years, she would have died in a concentration camp, but her diary survived. The following is an excerpt from LIFE’s new special edition, Anne Frank: The Diary at 70.” ~ Daniel S. Levy, LIFE Books

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
