Anne Frank: The Biography

31st December 2005

Anne Frank : The BiographyI’ve read Anne Frank’s diary many times, and always enjoy it. While Anne’s diary covers mostly the time that she and her family spent in hiding, this book tells what happened before the family moved to Holland, and what happened to them after they were betrayed. Some of the details of Anne’s father’s businesses were too much for me, and I skimmed those sections. But the information on Anne’s schooling, the methods that the Nazis used to subdue the countries they conquered, and the sacrifices that those who helped the Franks made, were quite interesting. The author also interviewed survivors of concentration camps, who had come into contact with Anne and her family in Westerbork, Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. These interviews gave a clear and grim picture of what happened to the family in the camps.
