It's hard to find the right words to describe this book, as anyone that has read or heard of Anne Frank knows how it all ends. A well written book that interviewed people from all times of her life.

This book shows its age as new information has come to light since, but as the first exploration of what happened 'after the Annexe' it is indispensable. Some poignant and searing recollections from those who knew Anne before she went into hiding and how she eventually died in the camps.

Achei um livro bastante interessante, onde temos relatos de algumas das pessoas que conheceram Anne Frank, desde a sua infância até à sua morte. E ainda com alguns relatos de sobreviventes dos campos de concentração.
