In 1942, a girl named Anne Frank received a diary for her birthday — one which would become both a chronicle of the dangers facing Jews during the Nazi occupation of the Netherland, and a testament to the power of hope. Anne revealed the challenges and dreams common for any young girl, and also talked about her family's desperate effort to escape the Holocaust: two years living in a tiny secret space in her father's old business, hiding from the Nazis while friends and allies tried desperately to keep them fed and safe.
Who Was Anne Frank? looks closely at Anne's life before the secret annex, what life was like in hiding, and the legacy of her diary. This captivating biography from the Who Was...? biography series, which includes black-and-white illustrations, maps, and diagrams, puts a personal face on the history of the Holocaust and celebrates Anne's incredible belief in the human spirit.
