Publisher's Summary

Anne Frank, it has been said, gave a face and a name to the horror of the Holocaust. This is her story. It relates how Anne, her family, and their friends hid in secret rooms - "the Annex" - in an Amsterdam warehouse for 25 months. Anne, just 13 when the family moved in and only 15 when the Gestapo at last broke down the doors of her secret world, found hope where there was only fear and the first blush of love when outside and all around there washed a sea of hate.

Wrote Ernst Schnable, a German writer who has researched Frank's life: "Out of the millions that were silenced, this voice no louder than a child's whisper has outlasted the shouts of the murderers and has soared above the voices of time."

What the critics say

"An incredible reading of Anne Frank's diary. Optimistic, enthusiastic, and a vibrant tribute to an intelligent young woman whose life was cut short so tragically in the Nazi concentration camp at Belsen. Anne speaks to all ages and all people." ( Lawrence Eagle Tribune)
"The young voice of Susan Adams paces and inflects this diary with utmost skill. Also commendable is the fine afterword in which the historical context and the remaining details of Ann Frank's life are explained." ( Booklist)

Gripping first hand experience of fear of death!

This account gives you an insight into the life of an adolescent girl, the various relationships she has with family and friends, and the dynamics she undergoes at that point of life. Rarely have things like this been so blatantly penned down.

Moreover, Anne's diary entries give you first-hand details of what months spent in hiding from persecutions and fear of death looks like. I also liked how the book does not leave you in suspense and gives you the details of events post Anne's capture.

However, the book is not all gloomy, and one may be able to relate to her experiences, more so having survived current pandemic. This book gave me a viewer's perspective, because while the listener/ reader knows that Anne ultimately dies, the author, Anne is unaware of the same at the time she writes her diary.

Narration was in line with the author's character and emotions she penned down. I thoroughly enjoyed this listen!

This is a wonderful Audio! Read the book, as a read a loud to the children, to which they were taken by! As a treat, we listened to the audio, to which the children have completely enjoyed the wonderful writings of this heroic young woman! And so very talented! What a joy and a blessing that we were able to have a window into her life. Heroism, indeed!
