Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One of the things that strikes me about Anne Frank's life was her wish to become a famous writer. She accomplished in death what she was not allowed to achieve in life. The events that took place during Hitler's reign and the fortitude the Frank family had to survive are remarkable. If they hadn't been betrayed by someone they might have survived the war in their attic hiding place. Once they were discovered, Anne and her family and friends, eight in all, were sent to prison camp. It was another dark time in our history. They all died in the prison camp except Mr. Frank. Because someone had saved her diary, her father was able to publish it and since then plays and movies have also been made based on her diary. This is part of the "People to Know" series. 2005, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 7 to 9.
