Fact Fiction Friday ~ Anne Frank

Continuing our new and regular feature here at Historical Fiction.  

Each Friday we will publish an historical fact based upon the date. Each fact will be accompanied by a book(s) title and perhaps a review or other snippet.

20th June 1943. Today marks the anniversary of the German round up of the Jewish population in Amsterdam.

The Diary of a Young Girl: The Definitive…I visited Amsterdam in my early teens. That visit included amongst others a visit to Anne Frank's house. I was incredibly moved by the account of the war years in The Netherlands, the legacy she left behind.

So it will not be a surprise that I am going to suggest The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank.
The Hidden Life of Otto Frank by Carol Ann…

I am also going to suggest this book. The Hidden Life of Otto Frank, who was Anne's father who survived the war.

  1. This edition of The Diary of Anne Frank is my absolute favorite. My parents gave it to me as a gift many years ago and I read it over and over and over...

    She had such hope and faith in humanity!
