Summary
In the spring of 1945, 15-year-old Anne Frank died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. In 1947, Otto Frank published his daughter's diary. To date, The Diary of a Young Girl has appeared in more than 50 different editions and has sold more than 20 million copies.This photo essay is an invaluable resource for readers of Anne's diary. It offers a portrait of the Frank family, including many never-before-published photographs. And it also provides an account of the events between 1929 and 1945 that forced the Franks into hiding and resulted in their discovery and imprisonment in concentration camps. With more than 250 photographs, this book helps readers to see what Anne saw and brings the turbulent events that shaped her world into sharper focus.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 5Diary of a Young Girl (1947) is read and remembered by millions. Often it's a young person's first encounter with what happened during the Holocaust. It's still the subject of scholarly debate (Does it offer false comfort? How did Anne's father censor the original?), and it makes regular appearances on stage and TV. Based on a traveling exhibit put together by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, this book of 225 black-and-white photos helps to correct the upbeat view of the Diary, the "people are really good at heart" view of the Holocaust atrocity. Snapshots of Anne and her family, set within the historical context of the raids, roundups, deportations, and massacres, show the brutal truth of how the persecution invaded ordinary life. There's a short text on every double-page spread, but the focus is on the powerful, captioned photos--including Anne's childhood in Germany and the Nazi rise to power that caused the Franks to flee to the Netherlands as well as Dutch collaboration that drove the Franks into hiding. There is coverage of the Dutch Resistance and of the camp where Anne died. Finally, there are chilling depictions of racism today. Some photos are grainy and the pages are crowded, but that won't stop young people from reading the history and the powerful personal accounts. --Hazel Rochman"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A much improved version of the identically titled catalogue published in 1985 to accompany a traveling exhibit, this volume joins an already large number of distinctive, accomplished books that magnify Anne Frank's experience to teach young readers about the climate in which she perished. While other titles (including the Anne Frank House's Anne Frank: Beyond the Diary by Ruud van der Rol and Rian Verhoeven) focus intimately on Anne Frank, this volume stresses history, detailing the rise of Nazism and its immediate effects on the Frank family. Photographs, several on every spread, tell even more of the story than does the compressed text. Readers see not only the by-now-familiar photos of the young Anne, but a view of a Jewish man, wearing the military decorations he earned fighting for Germany in WWI, standing outside his store in 1933 Cologne in response to the boycott of Jewish stores ordered by Goebbels; happy Dutch families with arms extended in a Heil Hitler; an anguished-looking naked girl, described as "mentally disabled," restrained by uniformed nurses right before she is to be killed through Hitler's "Euthanasia Project." The concluding sections, with views of Bosnian Muslims and Serbian soldiers, contemporary Ku Klux Klan rallies, a Londoner injured in an attack on a gay bar and other shocking instances of racism and racial crimes, explicitly connect prejudice with violence in an eloquent plea for tolerance.
