Va. School Pulls Version of Anne Frank Diary

January 28, 2010

A parent complaint has prompted the Culpeper County school system to pull a version of Anne Frank's diary off library shelves.

The county's director of instruction Jim Allen says the book pulled is "The Diary of a Young Girl: The Definitive Edition."

Allen says the parent complained because the version contains sexual references. The school system will use an alternative version of the diary that does not contain such references.

The diary chronicles the teenager's life from July 1942 until she was arrested in August 1944. She died in a German concentration camp.

The definitive edition, which is considered an unedited version of her diary, was published in 1995 by the Anne Frank Foundation on the 50th anniversary of her death.
