Although many of the attempted bans on Anne Frank The Diary of a Young Girl The Definitive Edition have taken place in modern society the censorship of Anne Frank began long before After Frank had perished during the war period only her diary remained. The last surviving member of her family Otto Frank retrieved her diary after the second world war came to a close and preserved it. There were many companies that could have published her works but the publishing company Contact in Amsterdam was finally decided upon. The Story of Anne Even though Anne's diary was a unique piece of literature the publication process would not be easy. The publisher of Contact felt that Anne writes too freely about her sexuality in her journal. The Story of Anne Censorship would need to be made before publishing her diary. The director requested that the passages regarding Anne's sexual exploration be removed and the company's chief editor also makes some small changes. The Story of Anne, Anne Frank's journal also saw some revisions at the request of Otto Frank in which he removed a comment about his fondness for talking about farting and going to the lavatory which Anne thought was repulsive Macdonald. Other comments Anne had made were censored to accommodate the common views of the time period including the idea that its not wrong for a man to bring a little experience to marriage. After all it has nothing to do with the marriage itself, Macdonald. Censorship was also applied to Anne's emotions about others in the household and the hard truth she would tell. One instance of her candor shines through in a diary entry about her caretaker's engagement in which she states that none of us are particularly pleased. Bertus may be a nice steady athletic young man but Bep doesn't love him and to me that's enough reason to advise her against marrying him when voicing the house's feelings on the news Macdonald. After removing all of Anne's intimate passages the director was ready to publish the diary under the title of Het Achterhuis meaning The Secret Annex, The Story of Anne.
