Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
With approximately 30% more material than the original 1947 edition, revealing a more rebellious and complex narrator, the new edition of Frank's classic diary spent five weeks on PW's bestseller list. (Mar.)
Library Journal
Anne Frank's now famous diary stops days before her hiding place was found and she began a forced journey to Auschwitz. Through her record of ordinary life in a terrible era, she became a voice for all who died. Lindwer, a documentary filmmaker, found six women who knew Anne in the camps; they described on camera their own memories of her death and their own survival. Here Lindwer presents the complete texts of interviews, which could not be fully incorporated into Lindwer's 1988 documentary. Not only is the courage of the survivors demonstrated but the nature of death and dying is clarified for the far greater number, like Anne, who disappeared in the Holocaust. A moving account, recommended for most collections.-- Rena Fowler, Northern Michi gan Univ. Lib., Marquette
School Library Journal
YA-- Lindwer presents the transcripts of six in-depth interviews conducted in preparation for his film documentary, The Last Seven Months of Anne Frank . Although ``Lies Goosens,'' real name Hannah Elisabeth Pick-Goslar, will be the most familiar to readers of Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl , each of these women's first-person accounts is compelling. They relate their backgrounds, their capture, details of the concentration camp experience, and descriptions of the time immediately following liberation. Each includes her relationship to Anne Frank and gives impressions of the girl's final days. This collage of intimate recollections paints a clear picture of the human experience known as the Holocaust. Few will be able to digest this book in one sitting; fewer still will be able to turn away from it once they've begun. --Barbara Hawkins, West Potomac High School, Fairfax, VA
From the Publisher

After reading Anne Frank's diary, I desperately searched for anything written about what had happened to her after the hiding place was raided by the Green Police. This by far, is the most informative book I have ever read about what happened to Anne Frank. These women share their own stories and each one is as heart-breaking and courageous and I recommend this book to anyone who reads about the Holocaust.

I had just read Anne Frank's diary, along with reading other books about the period and watching documentaries, when I read this book. As a continuition of Anne's story, this book fleshes out what happened after Anne stopped writing. It is equally powerful in its detailed description of life inside the concentration camps.

Great book. I read it through very quicky. I was captivated by the stories of these women. They gave a vivid account of their journey to the camps and what life was like there.
