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. In a sense it filled in the gaps and the unknown of what happened to Anne, and many others, during those horrific times.

When I first read Anne Frank's diary I think I was about sixteen and even then I thought what an amazing human being. Much has been said about her diaries. When they first came out under the editorship of her father he made some omissions, however, subsequent editions have been published in full. More recently there has been the debate about the public access of her diary. Does copyright still apply or not? At different times there has been some debate about young people reading her diary.

This book was an interesting read. It's said to be "the essential guide to The Diary of a Young Girl". For the most part I would actually agree with that statement.

At one point, after quoting a stomach-wrenching fact, he states haplessly, “These things were done in our ...more

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.

"As minhas quarenta e duas testemunhas disseram tudo o que havia a dizer. A reportagem acaba aqui. Surgiram as pegadas duma criança, um rasto delicado e a sombra do mais negro dos sonhos."
