  • Alternate Character Interpretation: The diary has been assigned in some North Korean 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.
  • Big in Japan: The diary is surprisingly popular in Japan, where it was an instant best seller when published.
  • Older Than They Think: 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 The Sixties.
  • Tear Jerker: 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.
