A Goodreads user asked:

I often wondered if the book was as poignant if Anne survived. My mum was the same age, and even looked similar. She survived the camps. So I often wondered what Anne Frank would have been like if she was allowed to grow up. I have Jewish friends with our parents being Holocaust survivors, our parents are different to the average parents of our non Jewish friends.

Debbie I'm answering this based on an assumption of Anne surviving the Death Camp and continuing her plan to publish her memoirs. I think it would have been more poignant as it would have also included her memories of the time in the camps. It would have shown a change in her attitudes about her parents and her sister and their relationships, even in looking back on her views while living in the Annex. We would learn details of the experience of their capture.
