Literature A DIARY A Diaries A diary is a book used to record events in your life and how you feel . Some people think of a diary as a special friend . In a diary , you can express yourself freely because the only person who will read it is you . Have you ever kept a diary ? If so , what kind of things did you write about in your diary ? B You are going to read excerpts from Anne Frank : The Diary of a Young Girl . What do you know about Anne Frank ? During what period of history was her diary written ? In July 1942 , 13-year-old Anne Frank and her family went into hiding from the Nazis in an Amsterdam warehouse . This was about a month after she received the diary as a birthday present . She wrote in her diary almost every day until she and the others were arrested by the Nazis . Anne and her sister , Margot , were first sent to Auschwitz and then to Bergen-Belsen , a concentration camp near Hanover , Germany . Anne and her sister died of typhus in the camp . Their mother was murdered in Auschwitz . Anne’s father , Otto , was the only one who survived the camps . He later found and published Anne’s diary . C Read this excerpt from the first and second entries in Anne’s diary and find out how she felt when she received a diary . Anne Frank : The Diary of a Young Girl 12 June 1942 I hope I will be able to confide everything to you , as I have never been able to confide in anyone , and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support . Sunday , 14 June 1942 I’ll begin from the moment I got you , the moment I saw you lying on the table among my other birthday presents . ( I went along when you were bought , but that doesn’t count . ) On Friday , 12 June , I was awake at six o’clock , which isn’t surprising , since it was my birthday . But I’m not allowed to get up at that hour , so I had to control my curiosity until quarter to seven . When I couldn’t wait any longer , I went to the dining room , where Moortje ( the cat ) welcomed me by rubbing against my legs .
