“It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
In 1942, with the Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. While they were hiding for few years, Anne Frank wrote a diary and capture the situation at a time, and how they lived, how it affected their life, her thoughts and much more.
What I liked most about this book is that how Anne describe boring everyday moments and random thoughts. Though It is a war book, my favourite parts are about Anne or father views of his child, relation between parents and siblings. As I can relate most of the things from it. About how when we are child and we think we know everything and how we feel bad when parents told us not to give opinions and all. In return, we do stupid things which we later regret or feel embarrassed about.
Some parts of the book are quite inspiring. We get to read, dreams and goals of 14 years girl, who wants to write and see the world. Even she is in a locked and distressing time, she was optimistic and think about the future. There were up and down at that time, still, she held on. It surely one of my favourites memoir. If you want to read an inspiring good memoir. You should give try this one.
