The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the best-selling books of all time and her tragic story continues to move us more then 70 years after her death. It is the heart-wrenching story of the hopes, dreams and fears of a young Jewish girl hiding in Nazi Germany during World War II.
This richly illustrated book uses the Diary as the starting point to explore Anne Frank’s life in Amsterdam and it takes a deep dive into this harrowing narrative, framing the Nazi’s rise to power with the plight of Anne Frank’s family and that of millions of victims of Nazi terror.
We are thankful for the Greatest Generation’s contributions to end what will hopefully forever be the last world war.
At a time when looking at historical context is on the rise, this book is a true collector’s item. It reminds people of the power of the word, what happens when freedom and hope are lost, and lessons learned from a life cut short.
