This new translation, performed by Winona Ryder, restores nearly one third of Anne's entries excised by her father in previous editions, revealing her burgeoning sexuality, her stormy relationship with her mother, and more.

"I hate how this is a banned book. This is straight up another form of oppression of the suffering that people go through for literally doing nothing wrong. Banning these important works is just reinforcing hate and encourages people to believe that the Holocaust didn't exist. Otto Frank published her diary for a reason, and that is so we remember the suffering their family and the others in the annex had a endure before being found. On another note, you can really feel for Anne, being a teenager and house bound, constantly living in fear and hearing air raids. She often retreats into herself for comfort and as she said "paper has more patience than people". You also see the development of her depression, being isolated from the world and constantly being picked on by Dussel and Mrs. Vaan Dan and her mother. That resonated with me, especially because I had depression at that age. In no way can I comprehend what people who are victims of genocide go through, but seeing her talk about these certain things really makes me feel like I'm having an open conversation with her. And that is an important thing especially in order to show people their suffering. "
"It's so heart wrenching seeing this transition from an innocent girl writing about her crush on a boy and getting ice cream with her friends to her writing about being in the annex and how scared she is. I just... god it was a hard read but also compelling and hard to put down. She would have made a wonderful writer. Can't help but tear up thinking about it."
