* AdaptationDistillation: The play and TheMovie.
* AdaptationExpansion: Again, the play and TheMovie.
* ArtisticLicense: The play and TheMovie take some liberties with the source material. Certain details, such as Dussel's allergy to cats (and the resulting conflict with Peter, who has a greater attachment to the cat than in the diary), the Hanukkah celebration, the fight over food (and threats to evict the Van Daans) immediately before the announcement of D-Day, and the sequence of events documenting precisely how the Annex residents were caught, are nowhere found in the diary itself. Certain scenes, such as the Annex residents' learning about D-Day and Anne's first kiss, play out very differently between the diary and the two adaptations. Also, certain statements from the diary, in both TheMovie and the play, are taken out of context, to the extent that the changes alter, even contradict, the statements' original meanings.

* PragmaticAdaptation: Several of the printings of the diary, as well as the play and TheMovie. Face it, there was no way some of the material, particularly the sexual discussions, would have made it past the MoralGuardians.

* AsTheGoodBookSays: At the start of the [[UsefulNotes/JewishHolidays Chanukah]] scene, the Frank family and their friends read Psalm 121 from the KJV Bible... which counts as FridgeBrilliance when you discover that its Christian Old Testament is known as and translated from the Hebrew Bible, whose canon is called the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanakh Tanakh]], a name used in Judaism.

* BiTheWay: The first several rounds of publishing excluded excerpts from when Anne admits to being excited by the female body, even going so much as to reveal she kissed a friend and asked to feel her breasts. The {{Squick}} factor of this being a young girl barely even in her teens is a justified explanation. The sections had been {{Bowdlerise}}d by her father, and weren't discovered until his death.
** In 2010, the Culpeper County (Virginia) school board banned the 50th anniversary definitive version due to complaints about its sexual content and homosexual themes, with a similar controvery arising in Northville, Michigan in 2013 when a concerned mother referred to portions of the diary as "pretty pornographic".

Added DiffLines:

* TheUnfavorite: Anne gets upset when her mother Edith wishes that she would be as quiet and well-behaved as her sister, Margot.
