Publisher's Summary

Anne Frank wrote a diary from the age of 13 as she hid for over two years in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse escaping the horrors of Nazi occupation. An intimate record of adolescence and confinement, anger and heartbreak, it is among the most enduring documents of the 20th century. Famed throughout the world and read by tens of millions of people in many different translations, it remains a beloved and deeply admired testament to the indestructible nature of the human spirit.
Recently discovered documents and photographs of Anne and her family, including letters from her, her father's letters from Auschwitz and his poignant descriptions of searching for his family after the war, have been made into a family saga by Mirjam Pressler, the editor of the definitive edition of the Diary. The book, which reads like a novel, recounts the story of Anne's family before, during and after the war. It contrasts the normality of family life with the horrors of persecution, deportation, and the concentration camps, and through it we gain new insight into Anne and her iconic diary, one of those unique documents that portray innocence and humanity, suffering and survival in the starkest and most moving terms.
