The nov­el­ist and pro­fes­sor of He­brew and Yid­dish lit­er­a­ture re­calls the first time she, as a teenager, read Anne Frank’s diary. “I vividly remember the af­ter­word to the book,” which de­tailed the bru­tal­ity the young girl faced in the con­cen­tra­tion camps. Horn’s es­say (p. 64) ex­plores why the diary re­mains so beloved—and what its pop­u­lar­ity ob­scures.
