Publisher Description

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

    " Very interesting read since it concentrates on Anne's (and her family's) life before and after they went hiding. An even more clear picture of them and the horrors of the holocaust emerges. Recommended highly to anyone. "
