Anne Frank was a teenage girl that was important during the War with Germany. During this time the Jewish people were being killed because they weren't pure Germans. Her family was forced to go into hiding. They ended up hiding in her fathers job which was a bank. While in hiding they were forced to live with another family and a man. This is what made her write in her diary about her every day experiences in hiding. The diary was given to her on her birthday before the family went into hiding. In this diary she spoke about her feelings and what she went through. She was not happy about the war and lived scared of what would happen if they were found out. During hiding they had to be quiet during a certain time period because of the workers downstairs and the police doing sweeps looking for the Jewish people. Eventually after years of hiding her family was found and forced into the concentration camps. In the camps they would not feed them. They would kill the sick Jewish people right away as well as the older. They would kill them by shooting them and putting them in gas chambers. Her family was put into different camps accept her sister Margot and her. Her father was the only survivor of the holocaust. He was given her diary and because of her dream in being a star one day and being a journalist he published her diary. Now today you are able to go to Amsterdam and see her diary and her old home. In her old home her hiding place is on display for you to see. I have been to the museum, it will make you cry. It was sad to see what happened to her family. Her family was brave and it made me feel we should never treat anyone different.

A biography of the famous Holocaust diarist in graphic-novel format, this book provides additional background and context on Anne Frank's family and historical events of the time. I've read a lot of Anne Frank books and I learned a lot from this one, perhaps because the authors had access to many materials at the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, which commissioned this project. The format makes this important story accessible and inviting to an audience that might not otherwise read the diary or other accounts of Frank's life. ( )

RGG: It's a graphic biography, not a graphic version of Anne Frank's Diary, meaning it lacks emotional intensity, but it does provide to the reader who pays attention a lot of context knowledge. Reading Interest: 10-12.

Epigraph
Dedication
I would like to dedicate this book to my children, Seth and Kathy, who but for the
fortune of time and place could have suffered the tragic fate of the
young sisters you are about to meet.
-SID JACOBSON
Watching my daughters grow into young women gave me a deep sense of what
Anne Frank and her sister Margot missed and what a loss they were to us all.
This one is for Amanda, Luisa, and Rebecca.
-ERNIE COLON
