I have been wanting to read this book for years, yet I never got around to it. I love this book because it takes you beyond the diary, and gives you a look at everything-Anne's childhood, her time in hiding, and, fascinatingly, the time she spent in various camps before her death in the spring of 1945. There is no way that you can just read the diary and truly understand Anne as a person. You need to read this biography if you are going to have any sort of respect for her, her family, and those that helped hide her family during the war. You also need to have a thorough understanding of the time period and setting, including Germany and Holland, particularly Amsterdam, and this book can give you that. The made for T.V. movie based upon this book is also fantastic, and I have used it in the classroom as well as watched it for my own viewing purposes. The two compliment each other very nicely.

Leane You can look it up on Amazon, it's called "Anne Frank: The Whole Story" and it stars Ben Kingsley as Otto Frank.
