Review


Synopsis:  Few more poignant true stories emerged from the Second World War than The Diary of Anne Frank. Published long after the event by her father (the only family survivor) it records the minutiae of the twenty−five months that two Jewish families, the Franks and the Van Daans, and a dentist called Mr Dussel spent in hiding from the Gestapo in the three tiny cramped rooms of an Amsterdam warehouse attic. Every day Miep Giles and Mr. Kraler, who run the offices downstairs, visit them with news and food. The constant secrecy, growing hunger and friction of living in such cramped conditions could not dull Anne's vibrant personality or her passion for living. Moving and inspiring!
