Anne Frank's Diary

In, Jennifer Rosenberg describes “5 Things You Don't Know About Anne Frank and Her Diary.” Anne chose pseudonyms for the people she mentioned. Her father authorized use of the family’s real names in the publication.


At first, Anne wrote for herself, but after hearing a radio broadcast urging study of personal along with official texts of history, she revised her journals thinking they might be published.

Initially, Anne corresponded with more than one “friend,” (characters named in Cissy van Marxveldt’s popular Dutch series), but finally addressed all entries to “Kitty,” (perhaps a character or a real person, Kitty Egyedi).
