* AloneInACrowd: Even though Anne has a loving family, lots of girlfriends and boy admirers, she still wishes for a TrueCompanion she can confide her thoughts in. Her diary becomes a ReplacementGoldfish in this regard, which she calls Kitty as if it's a friend or pet cat (which she also misses once she's in the Annex).

* AwkwardlyPlacedBathtub: The Secret Annex doesn't come with a bath, though it does have running water, so they must bathe in a tin tub. However since everyone has different ideas of acceptable privacy, they all use different rooms in the house.

As human nature would dictate, locking eight people in half of a townhouse under such stressful situations meant that each of the occupants immediately proceeded to get on everyone else's nerves. The Diary abounds with morbidly funny tales of the occupants arguing over rations, radio channels, people's cooking, and in one memorable story, a low scale campaign over bathroom privileges (any small mistake, like a toilet flushing at the wrong time, could get everyone killed).

* BiTheWay: There are passages in the unabridged edition where Anne admits to being excited by the female body and asks to feel a friend's breasts. As mentioned below, these were cut from the original publication, though quite likely as much due to the {{Squick}} factor of her being a preteen at the time as due to squeamishness about bisexuality.

One of the most famous and memorable accounts of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust, ''The Diary of a Young Girl'' or ''Het Achterhuis'' in the original Dutch, was the title given to the edited version of the diaries of Anne Frank (1929 - 1945), a German Jewish school girl living in Amsterdam. In 1942, Anne was given a diary notebook for her 13th birthday. By that point, [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Germany had already invaded]] and occupied the Netherlands for two years. At first, the Franks tried to live out the occupation, but as UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler's genocidal intentions began to show, Anne's father Otto built a secret shelter in the building where he worked. (By that point, the borders were closed and travel for Jews was so tightly regulated that leaving Amsterdam would have been impossible.) On 6 July 1942, Anne's sister Margot received relocation orders to enter a "[[BlatantLies work]]" camp and the Franks, along with the Van Pels family and another Jewish friend, immediately moved into the Secret Annex.

* ParentsAsPeople: Anne wrote about her difficult relationship with her mother--compounded by the fact that they were all cooped up together and, well, Anne ''was'' thirteen or fourteen--but also regretted it: "I said to myself, 'Anne, is that really you talking about hate? Oh, Anne, how could you?'" Ultimately it came down to a simple personality clash, and later the two grew closer.
