Anne Frank: Her life in words and pictures from the archives of The Anne Frank House

Menno Metselaar & Ruud van der Rol, translated by Arnold J.Pomerans

Flash Point

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.

REVIEWS

Praise for Anne Frank: Her life in words and pictures from the archives of The Anne Frank House

“A treasure to hold and to read, created with great care and mission.” —Kirkus Reviews,
 

“…exemplary…this small and quietly compelling dutch import is filled with warm family and chilling historical photos that intimately chronicle the slide toward genocide….This thorough and thoughtful companion piece underscores Anne Frank’s importance as an unintended and enduring voice in the struggle against oppression."  -- San Francisco Chronicle

 

"Readers will be enthralled by the intimate details and by the ongoing mystery of who betrayed the family, and they will want to talk about the heartbreaking quote from Otto Frank, who, after reading the Diary, realized that he never knew his daughter.”— Booklist [STARRED]

 

“A treasure to hold and to read, created with great care and mission.”

                                                                         —Kirkus Reviews [STARRED]

 

“Even for those collections where Anne Frank is well represented, this is a moving and valuable book that creates a memorable introduction to both Anne’s diary and her short, yet meaningful life.”

“This beautifully designed, hand-size volume published in partnership with the Anne Frank House makes an ideal gift for any age admirer of Anne Frank. Photos of the interior and exterior… make the journey through this book the next best thing to a visit to what is now preserved as the Anne Frank House.”                                                            Shelf Awareness

 

This extraordinary little book has a sky-high fascination factor. Most spectacular of all is the reproduction on nine wordless double-page spreads of actual pages from Anne’s diary…Eminently browsable, goosebump-inducingly immediate; a treasure for all those moved and inspired by Anne Frank’s story."                                                 Horn Book Review
