Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Gold, the author of the adult work Anne Frank Remembered, a study of Miep Gies and her role in protecting the Frank family, again explores the world of Anne Frank to bring home the painful truths that Frank has come to symbolize. Here she presents the wartime experiences of Hannah Goslar, the best friend immortalized in Frank's diary as Lies. Goslar's relationship with Anne Frank, including their brief reunion in Bergen-Belsen, has previously been outlined in books for adults; the poignancy of Gold's book rests in its sensitive evocation of Goslar's youthful reactions to the war and its destruction of her family and community. Readers feel Goslar's desolation and shock upon discovering the Franks' disappearance; as the Germans' oppression increases, she daydreams about Anne, whom she is certain is safe in Switzerland, "maybe even eating a real egg and buttered toast." Following Goslar through her family's arrest, internment in Westerbork and subsequent deportation to Bergen-Belsen, Gold uses carefully chosen details and specific incidents to communicate the horrors of the Holocaust. While acknowledging frequent cruelty, she emphasizes the heroism and altruism of prisoners (including Goslar's, in assembling a gift of food and, at great personal risk, passing it over an illuminated barbed-wire fence to the dying Anne). Readers drawn to Anne Frank's diary will be grateful for the fuller picture rendered here. Black-and-white photos not seen by PW. Ages 8-12. (Oct.)
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Readers of Anne Frank's diary "will be grateful for the fuller picture" rendered through the recollected wartime experiences of Frank's best friend, said PW's starred review; "Gold brings home the painful truths that Frank has come to symbolize." Ages 8-12. (Apr.)
Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
This book is a beautifully written memoir of terrible times. Alison Leslie Gold captures Anne's background through her friend Hannah Pick-Goslar, who survived the war. Although it was written fifty years after Anne Frank's death, readers will be caught up in her story.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8--This moving story of Anne Frank's neighbor and friend, Hannah Elizabeth Pick-Goslar, recounts the tragedy of World War II through a young girl's eyes. It does not take the form of a diary, but rather Gold puts into words Hannah's reminiscences of her childhood in Amsterdam and fills in the gaps of what happened to Anne after her diary ended. The account traces the childhood friendship of the two girls from the time Anne disappeared to the removal of Hannah and her family to concentration camps. The narrative also tells of the brief meeting between Anne and Hannah at Bergen-Belsen shortly before Anne's death. The girls met at a fence, risking death if caught, so that Hannah could give her beloved friend some food. The emotion and fear of the moment are fully realized. Although well told, this memoir often refers back to and relies on Hannah's connections to Anne, rather than letting Hannah's story stand on its own.--Allison Trent Bernstein, Blake Middle School, Medfield, MA

    The Holocaust was one of the biggest mass-murders ever Jewish people in Europe were becoming endangered. It was World War II and the Nazis were invading Holland. Hannah Goslar¿s friend Anne Frank had all of the sudden disappeared rumors were she was going to Switzerland. Hannah got sent to camps all over Europe, and had a short reunion with Anne at one, but after that Anne was never seen again. Hannah then got sent on a train but on the way the Germans surrendered and the war was over. Memories of Anne Frank is a touching book about Jewish life in World War II. I like Memories of Anne Frank because it gives a full picture of life for Jewish people during World War II. When the author tells about the barracks it seemed as if I was there at the time. The barracks were crowded, flea-infested, and cold. The bunks there were small and uncomfortable. The people barely got any food people were starving to death. When Hannah was on the train going to Theresienstadt it seemed horrible they had no food or water for three days straight and Hannah had typhus. There were dead people all around her. When the war was over, I could practically see the smiling from everyone to be free from Germany. In Memories of Anne Frank I liked the happy ending. At the end, the Germans surrendered and all of the Jewish people aboard the train were free. Mr. Frank came and took Hannah so she could fly to Switzerland to fully recover from typhus. Hannah¿s neighbor gives her a photo album that has all her childhood memories in it. The last reason I like Memories of Anne Frank is that Hannah Goslar told the author about her new life. Memories of Anne Frank is a primary source so the information is correct. There are not many books where the person being written about is there and that¿s what makes this book unique. Memories of Anne Frank describes being a Jewish person in World War II in a detailed but clear way. It¿s a great book about finding ways out of hardships.
