After the end of World War II and the death of her daughter, the father of Anne Frank prepared a third version, in which he opted to eliminate passages related to the crises typical of puberty.

The new original and complete edition includes version A and version B of the book.

The "Anne Frank Diary", originally written in Dutch, has been translated into dozens of languages ​​and is considered one of the "key documents" of the Nazi era.

Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt (central Germany) on June 12, 1929, to a Jewish family who fled the Nazis to Holland in 1934.

In 1940, Nazi troops invaded the Netherlands and in 1942 intensified persecution of the Jews in that country, forcing their family to hide in the back of a house (annex), together with other Jewish families, in which they remained during two years.

Anne Frank began writing the "Diary" on June 12, 1942 when she turned 13. "I hope to be able to entrust you with everything that I could not entrust to anyone," says the first note.

The last passage described in the book is dated August 1, 1944, three days before the Nazis discovered the hiding place and detained their family and the remaining Jews.

The "Diary" was in Amsterdam and was kept by the employees of Otto Frank, father of Anne Frank, to whom they delivered the writings after the end of the war.

Anne Frank died in March 1945 and a few weeks later the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp was liberated by the British.

Of the eight people who were detained in the "hiding place" of Anne Frank, her father was the only one who survived the captivity.
