We can learn many things from The Diary of Anne Frank. This book is about survival. It's about prejudice. It teaches how there is nobility in human compassion. And it's also about a young girl trying to survive adolescence. Many teens can relate to such a book because Anne goes through all of the normal adolescent trials in life, even though she's locked up. Anne has a difficult relationship with her mother, as most young girls do. She often says things to hurt her mother, yet she can't help her temper and continues to do so as time goes on. She also goes through the beginning stages of love. She and Peter enjoy each others company, and that leads to a very close bond that many teens experience in their lives. Anne also struggles with her identity. She finds through her writing that there are two Annes: a good one and a bad one. She longs throughout the story to find someone who will relate to her. All of these feelings she has can relate to most teenagers, no matter what year it is. Although it teaches of the Holocaust and what the Jews went through, it reaches out to the reader to make the story more realistic and believable.
