Overview

The Diary of Anne Frank is read and loved by children throughout the world, yet few of those readers know what life was really like for the young Jewish girl before and after she wrote her famous diary.

Written in a lively yet sympathetic style, Anne Frank’s Story follows Anne Frank from her birth in Germany and her happy childhood in Amsterdam through the years she and her family spent in hiding from the Nazis to her imprisonment and eventual death in the concentration camps.

“This book gives children the opportunity to meet Anne Frank, to know her story and her destiny, and to learn that discrimination in every form is evil and inhuman.”—Buddy Elias, first cousin to Anne Frank

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-This well-researched work explores the girl's life before, during, and after her time in hiding from the Nazis. Lee is obviously taken with her subject but does not fall prey to hero worship. In a clear, engaging style, she shares details of Anne's life, including a letter to an American pen pal. Dialogue is carefully footnoted, as is any mention of feelings or opinions. Black-and-white photographs of the Frank family and the Annex are included. The book offers speculation about who might have betrayed the Franks and ends with a discussion of memorials to Anne around the world. Sandor Katz's Anne Frank (Chelsea, 1996; o.p.) does not have as much information about Anne's life before hiding; Johanna Hurwitz's Anne Frank (JPS, 1988) does not have photographs. This solid biography will supplement classroom study and is a good choice for reports or leisure reading.-Martha Link, Louisville Free Public Library, KY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
