For ages 8 and up Anne Frank loved to play tennis and swim. She enjoyed being with her friends in school and couldn't resist chattering during class. But, tragically, Anne was growing up in Holland during the Second World War, when all European Jews lived in grave danger. When Dutch Jews were forced to leave their homes, Anne and her family found a hiding place.Anne kept a diary in which she described the two years of their secret life. After the war ended, the diary was found and published. Her innocent account of the horrors of war was widely read, and it touched readers all over the world. This biography tells about Anne's family and their lives before the Second World War, the Nazi persecution of Jews, and Anne's years in hiding.Johanna Hurwitz's readable, direct style enables young readers to share Anne's childhood dreams and to feel the tension of the years that followed. The realistic black-and-white drawings by Vera Rosenberry bring Anne Frank even closer to readers' hearts.
