Did Anna Frank really write the well-known diary?

...or it was written by a grown-up and was promoted as written by a teen girl to make profit?

    yes it was. her dad, the only person to survive the frank family published it because anne frank herself wanted to publish the diary someday. it's an ordinary diary like every teenagers'. she hasn't written alot about the war.

    believe me she did write the diary.

    All the evidence is that it is authentic.

    The only things against it are neo-nazi prejudice and the fact that it seems almost too good to be true.

    You are right on one point however. Her first name is pronounced like 'Anna'. 'Anne' is two syllables in German and Dutch, not one as most English-speakers pronounce it.

    yes, there has been proof that Anne Frank's diary is authentic. if a German Officer had seen and picked it up then the Diary would not have ever been found and published.

    Yes she did. Try to think that she belong to an era in which writing had more importance than today. Lots of kids her age had to write properly. Today they should, but reality is that we are far away from those standards.

    It was started by her and probably finshed by her dad who made tons of cash off of it. I mean if you have ever seen the originals of the book her handwriting changes dramatically. "If it is too good to be true.." Well you know the old saying.

    No it was Anne Frank

    It's authentic. Unless, of course you believe those IDIOTS who say the Holocaust never happened.
