(2000)
A Hidden Life
A non fiction book by

 
 
Anne Frank's diary, an enduring symbol of the tragedy of the Holocaust, also serves as an introduction to a very real, fascinating girl. But the best-known version of Anne's diary is missing many entries. Just last year, more entries came to light. Here the editor of the diary's definitive edition shows us a much more complicated and appealing girl than we have known before. Mirjam Pressler pays particular attention to the new diary entries and what they tell us about Anne's sexuality and her feelings about her parents.

The other residents of the secret annex have a fuller life here, too. Careful portraits give us information that Anne couldn't. We learn how they came to the annex, why they may have behaved as Anne described, and their feelings about Anne. And, finally, this book reaches beyond the end of the diary to the terrible events after the annex was discovered--the family's imprisonment in Auschwitz, followed by Anne's and her sister's deaths in disease-ridden Bergen-Belsen.

This insightful look at Anne Frank and her world gives readers a new understanding of the girl behind one of the best-loved books of all time.
