Editorial Reviews

Eleanor Roosevelt
This is one of the wisest and most moving commentaries on war and its impact on human beings that I have ever read.
New York Herald Tribune
It is a poignant, heartbreaking yet somehow heartwarming story, fresh with the dew of adolescence.
Meyer Levin
There is anguish in the thought of how much creative power, how much creative power, how much sheer beauty of living, was cut off from genocide. But through her diary Anne goes on living. From Holland to France, to Italy, Spain. The Germans too have published her book. And now she comes to America. Surely she will be widely loved, for this wise and wonderful young girl brings back a poignant delight in the human spirit.-- Books of the Century, New York Times

Issues related to war violence generate a lot of interest from society and demand independent academic research. NIOD conducts and stimulates such research and its collections are open to all those who are interested.

The Institute was founded on 8 May 1945 to write the history of the Second World War in the Netherlands and in the former Dutch East Indies through independent research. Since 1 January 1999 the Institute is part of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).

On 9 December 2010 NIOD merged with the Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies (CHGS) and it now operates under the name NIOD, Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

This is the diary by Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl. Her family had to leave Amsterdam and hide from the approaching Nazis. When their location was discovered, they were forced to hide in an office building. This diary demonstrates the transition from being a young girl to being a young lady, during one of the most horrific times in the world’s history. Anne Frank turned thirteen years old, when she started writing in her now infamous diary. In it she documents her daily life over the course of two years. She honestly writes about the details of the events that her family went through, as well as the emotions she and the seven others felt being trapped in the office building. What started out as innocent diary entries, typical for anyone her age, quickly turned into a documentary of the constant fear of being discovered mixed with the physical pains of being in hiding. This book will change readers’ lives. Notes: This review was written for My Sister's Books. This review was originally posted on the Ariesgrl Book Reviews site.
