It is 75 years ago this year that Anne Frank was given her first diary, with its red checked cover, for her thirteenth birthday on 12 June 1942. And it is 70 years ago that Anne Frank’s diary was published, on 25 June 1947. With your help we want to commemorate these events.

Malala with Anne Frank's diary

"The Diary of Anne Frank reveals the courage and strength of a young girl living under war and conflict. It inspires me to believe that every child deserves the right to dream, the right to learn and the right to live in peace." #Malala #Diary75

From 12 June to 25 June this year we will be using a social media campaign to call on people all over the world to reflect on the diary of Anne Frank and its meaning. We are asking people to briefly explain what Anne’s diary means to them, and/or to take a photo of themselves with their own copy of the diary. We would be very grateful if you would post your contribution on your social media channels with the hashtag #Diary75 and @annefrankhouse.

The diary

Anne Frank’s diary has been published in over 70 languages and is famous around the world. Anne’s descriptions of the time in hiding in the secret annexe, her powers of observation and self-reflection, her fears, hopes and dreams still make a deep impression on readers worldwide. Through Anne’s diary people begin to learn about the Second World War and the Holocaust, and they read about how it is to be excluded and persecuted. After all these years, Anne’s diary still has contemporary relevance.
