"Prepared by the Netherlands Institute for War Documentation, this monumental work allows the reader to compare the three versions of the diary itself: Anne's original entries: the diary as she herself edited it in the hiding place of the "Secret Annex"; and the version most popularly known, as edited by Anne's father, Otto Frank, and a Dutch publishing house after World War II, when they removed certain family and sexual references. Every aspect of the diary - including Anne's handwriting and the paper used - is meticulously examined, providing compelling proof and historical affirmation of its poignant testament. Absorbing biographical information on the Frank family enhances Anne's personal perceptions, and a summary of critical events during and after the family's arrest - including how the Nazi authorities learned about the Franks and their secret hiding place - adds a new dimension to this tragic, still resonant story."--BOOK JACKET.
