Unfortunately, a conflict arose between Levin and Otto Frank when Levin attempted to produce a stage-version of the diary.
Levin complained that Annes father wanted "a tamed version of Anne and her life"—one less Jewish—and, thus, he supported other playwrights work.
Explaining that because both plays relied on the same original sources, there were inevitably similarities.
Levin refused to settle, until after two years of impasse, Frank and Levin reached an out-of-court settlement.
Her private thoughts, feelings, and frustrations found expression in this diary; the pains of adolescence are the most prominent topic.
However, Anne also recorded the stresses of living in hiding with seven other people. In response to a call-up notice from the SS for Annes sister Margot, the family moved, five days early, into a set of hidden rooms behind Otto Franks office.
Returning from the war, he found out that his daughters had died.
Luckily, after the capture, Miep Gies picked up what she recognized as Annes papers and "put them away, unread, in her desk drawer" where they remained for her father.
Why does Anne Franks work have this quality, this power?
Whether it is the diarys few innocent remarks about the Nazis or its entertaining accounts, it is difficult to define the reason behind the books extraordinary success.
