* ParanoiaFuel: Being cramped and crowded in a small space while you are constantly fearing for your life. The inhabitants must remain completely quiet ten hours every day, not moving a muscle. Even the most minor mistake (such as flushing the toilet at the wrong time) can mean the end. If that wasn't terrifying enough, every scene where they are nearly discovered is this.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The diary has been assigned in some {{UsefulNotes/North Korea}}n classrooms. Students are taught that while Anne had a beautiful dream, she was naive and stupid for failing to fight against the Nazis. The students are then taught the importance of fighting against other "Nazi" nations, particularly the United States.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Everything Anne says about what she's planning to do when she'll leave the house falls into this.
** There is an annecdote where Peter hangs a notice on the bathroom door in GratuitousFrench which reads: "S.V.P., Gas" ([[MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels Please, Gas]]).
* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Japanese Love Anne Frank]]: The diary is surprisingly popular in Japan, where it was an instant best seller when published.
* HeartwarmingMoments: Several, but the biggest one comes at the end:
-->"It's difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart."
* OlderThanTheyThink: Some of the things alluded to in the diary, such as a twelve-year-old boy rumored to have "gone all the way", the cohabitation, without marriage, of Dussel and his girlfriend, and Anne's own libertine attitudes toward sexuality, would startle many readers who believed that such things started in TheSixties.
* TearJerker: Everything in the diary. Every happy moment, every fight, every sad entry, and every philosophical observation is made absolutely heart breaking because we know what will happen to them.
