Through her vivid, tender entries we experience Anne's changing world as persecution, hiding, and betrayal become part of daily life in Nazi Europe.
Ann Kramer's superbly illustrated book also celebrates the enduring legacy of Anne Frank. Her story, now known to millions, is an inspiration for young readers and writers everywhere. This attractive volume will bring a new generation to a story which should never be forgotten.
