    Ann Frank's Diary Was Censored

    If you read The Diary of Ann Frank you will be doing yourself a favor by reading The Hidden Life of Otto Frank. If you didn't read Ann Frank's Diary, you will be seeking it after the last chapter of this book. Otto Frank was involved in printing Ann's diary and left out some telling information. That information and the full story of Otto Frank and his rubbing elbows with the Nazi's is enlightening in regard to the lives of those in the background of Ann Frank's Diary. You will read of his relationship with his wife and his motives before and after Ann's Diary years . Included are the omissions Otto didn't want revealed. This is a mystery story that raises questions that you want very much to find the answers which are revealed with truth & facts. Was Otto an innocent victim? This book is not a quick read but worthwhile, fascinating and revealing. I consider it an important addition to my personal library.

    Was Anne Frank's Father, Otto, a Nazi Collaborator?

    This is a good book. It is perhaps the first that talks about Otto's collaboration with the German army at the very time that army was making Europe 'free' of Jews. While this information is touched upon, the implications for others who 'collaborated' with the Nazis does not appear to be recognized. Perhaps this information is one reason why the book is not being reviewed by major media. It's a real hot potato, and no one wants to talk about the obvious.

    Good Book

    Very good and very educational on the Frank and Hollander families. At times the book seemed a bit dry, but overall it shed a fascinating light on Otto Frank and the betrayer.
