    bursting with frustrated life

    Despite the monumental differences in our situations, I identified strongly with this eloquent girl my own age. Here predicament burned in my thoughts : How she hid from the Nazis in a tiny annexe above her father's Amsterdam office building bursting with frustrated life, "like a canary in a cage."

    Please explain the highlighted group of words.

    tiny annexe: I believe the writer is referring to the attic where Anne Frank was hidden (I'm assuming that you're still reading an article about this topic)

    bursting with frustrated life: It would be extremely frustrating to remain hidden in an attic day after day.

    About to burst (explode) with frustration.
