The Essential Companion to Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl.
First published in 1958 and unavailable for over 25 years
With a new foreword by Anne Frank House, Amsterdam, and an introduction by Gillian Walnes MBE, co-founder and Exectuive Director of the Anne Frank Trust UK
Anne Frank House in Amsterdam have kindly agreed to write a new foreword for this important historical acount. Otto Frank initiated this project, such was the demand for more information about his daughter folowing the publication of her diary.
Anne Frank left only a faint trail behind her. Acquaintances describe her as gracious, capricious at times, and full of ideas. She had a tender but also critical spirit; a special gift for feeling deeply and for fear, but also her special kind of courage...
Ernst Schnabel interviewed 42 of the people mentioned by Anne Frank in the diary, including her father, other family members and close relatives and friends.
Here too is the full dramatic story of her family's betrayal and its disastrous aftermath in the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen.
