How Anne Frank’s Diary Survived | Time.com

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
