Anne Frank: The Biography
For people all over the world, Anne Frank, the vivacious, intelligent Jewish girl with a crooked smile and huge dark eyes, has become the human face of the Holocaust. Now in paperback, here is the highly acclaimed first biography of the girl whose fate touched the lives of millions. Drawing on exclusive interviews with family and friends, on previously unavailable correspondence, and on five diary pages long kept secret, Melissa Muller has created a nuanced portrait of her famous subject. This is the flesh-and-blood Anne Frank, unsentimentalized and so all the more affecting. Full of revelations, Muller's book casts new light on Anne's relations with her mother and solves an enduring mystery: who betrayed the families hiding in the annex just when liberation was at hand? An indispensable volume for all those who seek a deeper understanding of Anne Frank and the brutal times in which she lived and died.
