Jewish Values: Anne Frank: Hope in the Shadow of the Holocaust
Number of Pages:
The author includes salient facts of Holocaust history, interweaving them with excerpts from the diary, a map, photographs, anecdotes, and personal characteristics gleaned from many books written about Anne Frank and interviews from oral sources, including remarks by Anne's close friends, neighbors, teachers, and of course, Miep Gies. In addition to a timeline, there are chapter notes (in which all sources used are noted by chapter), a glossary, further reading, Internet addresses, and an index. Part of the Holocaust Heroes and Nazi Criminals series. The use of the word "hope" in the title is misleading to children: for Anne Frank, her family, and millions of other Jews during the Holocaust, there was no hope.
