BEFORE YOU READ
Anneliese Marie Anne Frank (12June 1929 February/March1945) was a German bornJewish girl who wrote while inhiding with her family and fourfriends in Amsterdam during theGerman occupation of theNetherlands in World War II. Herfamily had moved to Amsterdamafter the Nazis gained power inGermany but were trapped whenthe Nazi occupation extended intothe Netherlands. As persecutionsagainst the Jewish populationincreased, the family went intohiding in July 1942 in hidden rooms in her father Otto Franksoffice building. After two years in hiding, the group was betrayedand transported to the concentration camp system where Anne diedof typhus in Bergen-Belsen within days of her sister, Margot Frank.Her father, Otto, the only survivor of the group, returned to Amsterdamafter the war ended, to find that her diary had been saved. Convincedthat it was a unique record, he took action to have it published inEnglish under the name The Diary of a Young Girl.

WRITING in a diary is a really strange experience forsomeone like me. Not only because Ive never writtenanything before, but also because it seems to methat later on neither I nor anyone else will beinterested in the musings of a thirteen-year-oldschoolgirl. Oh well, it doesnt matter. I feel likewriting, and I have an even greater need to get allkinds of things off my chest.
Paper has more patience than people. I thoughtof this saying on one of those days when I was feelinga little depressed and was sitting at home with mychin in my hands, bored and listless, wonderingwhether to stay in or go out. I finally stayed where Iwas, brooding: Yes, paper does have more patience,and since Im not planning to let anyone else readthis stiff-backed notebook grandly referred to as adiary, unless I should ever find a real friend, itprobably wont make a bit of difference.Now Im back to the point that prompted meto keep a diary in the first place: I dont have afriend.
Let me put it more clearly, since no one willbelieve that a thirteen-year-old girl is completelyalone in the world. And Im not. I have loving parentsand a sixteen-year-old sister, and there are aboutthirty people I can call friends. I have a family,loving aunts and a good home. No, on the surface Iseem to have everything, except my one true friend.All I think about when Im with friends is having agood time. I cant bring myself to talk about anythingbut ordinary everyday things.
