Memories of Anne Frank
Memories of Anne Frank takes the reader one step beyond the Diary, describing Anne and her close friend Hannah Goslar. Alison Leslie Gold writes about Hannah’s own struggle during the war and of a young, funny, bright Anne Frank who had sleepover parties, and flirted, and wanted to be famous, a girl just like any other girl. She recalls last tearful meetings at Bergen Belsen soon before Anne’s death.This book brings to life Hannah’s remembrances of two teenage girls who, despite the utter hopelessness of their situations, kept hoping anyway. “Readers drawn to Anne Frank’s diary will be grateful for the fuller picture rendered here.” – Publishers Weekly , in a starred review.
