MI Mother Calls Anne Frank Diary "Pornographic;" Slaps School District with Lawsuit for Requiring It

Anne Frank's "The Diary of a Young Girl" is required reading in many schools, and a mother in Northville, Michigan has filed a formal complaint over it, the Inquisitr website reports today (April 26, 2013).

Gail Horalek has filed a formal complaint against her daughter's school district over the Anne Frank book, because it contains passages she believes are too graphic for seventh graders.

The unedited version of the diary -- which was published in 1996 -- describes Frank's discovery of her own genitalia in some detail, which Horalek considers "pornographic."

She believes that the Meads Mill Middle School -- which her daughter attends -- should have asked parents for permission before assigning the book. "The problem is the school is giving the seventh graders inappropriate material and not explaining it to the parents," she told the Northville Patch newspaper.
