Information about the author.
On a summer in 1942, Anne Frank and her family went into hiding from the Nazis. Until the day they arrested her, more than two years later, she kept a diary. Anne Frank is the indespensable visual guide to her tragic, but inspiring story. Produced in association with The Anne Frank House and filled with never-before-published snapshots, school pictures, and photos of the diary and the Secret Annex, this elegantly designed album is both a stand-alone introduction to Anne’s life and a photographic companion to a classic of Holocaust literature.
In over one hundred pictures, many never before published, Anne's life before she was forced into hiding is uncovered. Anne Frank: Beyond the Diary captures the childhood of almost any girl we might know, one with a lively personality, friends, and family. We can imagine her hopes, her dreams. Photographs and excerpts from Anne's diaries expose the worsening political situation and oppressive conditions that marked the last years of her life. Finally, the testimony of the people who last saw Anne and her sister Margot alive reveals the tragedy that followed.
