Publisher's Summary

Anne Frank, it has been said, gave a face and a name to the horror of the Holocaust. This is her story. It relates how Anne, her family, and their friends hid in secret rooms - "the Annex" - in an Amsterdam warehouse for 25 months. Anne, just 13 when the family moved in and only 15 when the Gestapo at last broke down the doors of her secret world, found hope where there was only fear and the first blush of love when outside and all around there washed a sea of hate.

Wrote Ernst Schnable, a German writer who has researched Frank's life: "Out of the millions that were silenced, this voice no louder than a child's whisper has outlasted the shouts of the murderers and has soared above the voices of time."

Critic Reviews

"An incredible reading of Anne Frank's diary. Optimistic, enthusiastic, and a vibrant tribute to an intelligent young woman whose life was cut short so tragically in the Nazi concentration camp at Belsen. Anne speaks to all ages and all people." ( Lawrence Eagle Tribune)
"The young voice of Susan Adams paces and inflects this diary with utmost skill. Also commendable is the fine afterword in which the historical context and the remaining details of Ann Frank's life are explained." ( Booklist)

Anne Frank...brilliant!

I read this book as a child in primary school and remember crying at the end of this book, thinking this was the worst story I have ever read (worst meaning the truth was so horrible). A true and devastating story told so eloquently through a 13 - 15yr old child. Reading now some 30+ years later it is a story of a once lucky happy child and then her journey throughout her 2yrs of hiding. She amazingly had moments of fun, laughter and made the most of her dreary and inescapable surroundings. She captures the time so well it teleports you to that moment in time.

Definitely worth the read for everyone, we should always remember to be grateful for the simple things in our life, that we all may take for granted, time to time.

Anne Frank...you have lived forever, your wish has come true!!
