    The reason I chose this book is because in eighth grade I read the play about Anne Frank and now it was cool to get the story from a different perspective and in a different format. This was also a book that I had seen on the shelf earlier and had been planning on reading for a couple months and thought this was going to be to month to do it. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.

This was also a book that I had seen on the shelf earlier and had been planning on reading for a couple months and thought this was going to be to month to do it. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to others. The story is not just strictly about her diary as some people might think, it was written from the perspective of the author who would talk about really just the 1930’s and 40’s in general. She would give us the life and quotes from Anne Frank and her diary, but it also talked about World War II and what was going on in different countries around the globe. An overview of Anne Frank in her life is as follows; Anne was a Jewish girl living in Amsterdam during the Nazi reign of terror over Europe, who lived in the annex of her father’s business during the Holocaust. During the day, her and her family had to stay completely quite so they would not wake the workers below. When Anne turned thirteen she received a diary for her birthday, right away she knew this was going to be a great gift, since she already had a love for reading and writing. Living in the small annex, it was hard to get by because you could not see the outside world no matter what. The only way the family would receive goods, is when their family friend, Miep, would bring them things at night. Being in such close quarters, there was a lot of fighting between the family, and the couple other people living in the annex.They all had to get over their problems and just try to survive as best they could. The Franks were able to stay in hiding for more than two years before the Gestapo finally searched their building and their cover was blown. Anne, her sisters, and her mother were all separated from their father when they were taken into concentration camps. In these camps Anne died from typhus, which is a group of infectious diseases. The only member of her family who was able to make it out alive, was father Otto Frank who was liberated from Auschwitz and later would be the person who published Anne’s diary. Something I liked about this book was at the end of the book there is some cool maps and stats they give you to show the total amount of death tolls from each individual country and also maps out where most of these concentration camps were. Overall it was a good book that told an amazing story. Something that I did not particularly like about this story is how it kind of jumped around a little bit. For example at the end of one chapter would be talking about one thing, and then when it went to start the next chapter it would start talking about something completely different.

    We all know Anne Frank but do you know what she and other Jews had to face in there dayly life? Sometimes the path that one person takes can effect everyone around him but there are some who find their life upside down due to that one figure.

When Ge We all know Anne Frank but do you know what she and other Jews had to face in there dayly life? Sometimes the path that one person takes can effect everyone around him but there are some who find their life upside down due to that one figure. As warrior of the first world war Adolf Hitler was extremely loyal to his country and he had the heart of a lion, this may seem like a marvelous feature but you will find out that if there is a bump on this road the consequence will be disastrous. When Germany lost the war they had to give away a ton of things and it caused a melt down in Germany,Adolf Hitler saw the effects up close and became a time-bomb ready to explode at any given time.When all think of Adolf Hitler we see a cruel,bloodthirsty,ambitious,unfair and notorious man, but did you know he was eager on becoming an artist until a Jew came along into the mix and added fuel to the fire thus starting the bitter relationship between Nazis and Jews. Adolf Hitler was out to get revenge, he started by pointing fingers to the Jews for all of Germany's problems and it is not very hard to accelerate when you are moving specially when you are not afraid to voice your mind and there is disorder everywhere. As time passes by the hate for Jews spread like a wild fire. The Nazis encouraged people to bully Jews, even teachers bullied them and most schools had to split Jews and non-Jews up. During the war Jews from all over Europe where forced into concentration where they were split form there families, put to permanent slumber or left there like a leaf in the snow, even though all this thing some Jews saw another sunset and sunrise. This is a recommended book to history fans as it has a lot of historical facts in it. This book really brings tears to your eye and changes you mind on death. I liked this book as it tells a moral but not literally cause it makes you think back in time and puts you in different shoes. This is one book a pacifist would not want to read.

Throughout this book, with every word read, new information and knowledge was acquired about Anne Frank and the dreadful life she had to live in fear and hiding away. Yet, this book goes to an extent beyond just Anne Frank’s life, but takes into custody all the numerous children whom have suffered as well, and deserve recognition. The book further on explains life during World War II and how Hitler came to be and caused dreadful disorder. The account is well organized and written in chronological order, debuting by Otto Frank’s, Anne’s father, life, the birth of Hitler and how he rose to power, the birth of Anne Frank, political movement, Nazis and their dreadful acts, to the War ending and Otto being the soul survivor of the family. The work of art recounts other than just the sentimental story of Anne Frank and her two years recorded in a diary, yet this book goes beyond Anne Frank to represent all those who were victimized. It informs the reader about the condition of life during those days of misery. Reasons to why the war broke out, how did the Jews survive, and how this this tempted murder and pursuit of Jews affect their population in Europe were all revealed. Every tear of sadness, every nerve, very fear, every breath, every tiring muscle, every effort, and every word spoken out was taken into account. Carol Ann Lee commences her book by explaining the historical events to come, and the birth of Adolf Hitler and Otto Franks, and how one of them would drastically affect the life of millions. Many are ignorant towards the suffering many had to endure during these dark times, yet the author revives those moment of horror and increases the pain and sorrow one feels when being aware of the harm and trouble many young Jews have went through. Thus Lee’s writing has affected many, inspired others, and brought awareness and (exaggerated) truth to her vast audience. The life of Anne Frank was added upon as the author took liberty in explaining her surrounding and all the significant happenings that took place, while Anne Frank hid away, writing down her two miserable years of her life in her diary. “Anne Frank is a well-known person who represents millions of unknown victims. Her famous diary offers a brief glimpse into her life while she hid with her family from Nazis in 1942” (Carol Anne Lee). Anne was born in a contented German Jewish family, with an older sister, Margot. Anne’s mother, Edith, was responsible of the home and family, yet Anne grew closer to her father as she aged. Otto Frank was Anne’s father, and he worked at a local bank. Throughout her short life, Otto provides much needed help, support, and admiration to his young daughter. There neighborhood was enriched with children, thus, Anne and Margot would very often play and amuse their selves with the children in their neighborhood, apart from one particular neighbor, father of countless children, who despised Jews and believed in the Nazis conspiracy. Happy years passed by, yet dreadful ones where on the edge of tomorrow. In 1933, Nazis emerged, which is an anti-sematic and political movement against the Jews, whose goal was to “get rid” of Jews, and unite Germany under one powerful leader. Adolf Hitler promised that Germany would emerge from its destitute state to become a glorious and most powerful nation in Europe. Adolf believed that the Germans’ should have a strong sense of nationalism and demonstrate satisfactions and being proud of their country. Yet, according to Hitler, Germany was derived by its own greatest enemy; the Jews. Subsequently, the wrongs of others, catastrophes, and all that went wrong was blamed on the Jews. A few years later, after Hitler was imprisoned for trying to accumulate power other than the already existing German government, Nazis finally took power. With no second to loose, they became immediately active. Thus, Nazis rose to power and would be the result of the unthinkable for the years to come. The Nazis quickly acted upon their early years of power. They commenced by threatening and arresting anyone and everyone who contradicts their ideas and philosophies. Thus, they controlled any revolts or rebellions and wanted no internal threat. Moreover, they began burning the religious books of the Jewish people, as well as books written by Jews. Yet, they did not stop there. Books weren’t the only things they burned and grasped away from Jews. They went as far as burning their homes, leaving many Jews homeless and wrecked away from their property and hard work. The distress was far from over. Not long after, the Nazis passed down several laws, known as the anti Jewish laws. Jewish civil servants’ jobs and occupations were thrived away from them. Furthermore, the young Jewish could no longer learn at the same school as the non-Jewish, thus they would have to be separated. Yet, the Jewish weren’t the only targets Nazis despised. They could not tolerate homosexuals, the disable, and gypsies either. Jews were discriminated and thought of us unworthy and certainly untrustworthy. They were viewed as the reason of any failure and misfortune. They were viewed as a deceiving and selfish race. As Germany was an intolerable country for Jews to live in, both Edith and Otto agreed that they had to move out. Thus, the Franks no longer desired to continue their path in Germany, as the dangerous were increasing, and left for the Netherlands, as Otto, Anne’s father, has received a job there. Amsterdam would have been safer for a Jewish family, for now. Yet, as they move to the Netherlands, that signified a fresh new start, a new beginning, a new adventure, far from “home”. Celebrating her fifth year, Anne would go to school, learn a new language, Dutch, and meet new friends. Yet, she would soon discover that she is certainly no the only German Jew refugee who has moved to Amsterdam. In other hands, financially, no serious problem was mentioned as Otto’s company, Opecta, provided an essential ingredient to make jam. He later makes an entertaining film to advertise his product and demonstrate how his ingredients turn to Jam. Though Amsterdam provided all necessities and was more safe for the Jewish family then they would ever have been in Germany, certainly as matters were worse, Edith started getting homesick as she misses her home and nation, and longed for a day where she can return. Yet, she is well aware that she absolutely can’t. She consistently writes to her friends and family. Yet, Jewish life got harsher and harder back in Germany, Jews may not own business and were forbidden to marry anyone other than another Jew. Unfortunately, November 1938, the dreadful years signified the time when numerous Jewish homes were abruptly and brutally destroyed. This event was later remembered, and honored by Jews today. As one event lead to another, Anne’s grandmother decided to join her family to Amsterdam, at the age of 73. Yet Nazis were only showing signs of growth and obtaining more and more power as they were aiming to conquer all Europe. In 1939, German armies invade Poland, which results in England and France joining the war since they are strong allies of Poland. Thus, the second World War begun. One year later, the day has finally come when, in 1940, Germany invades the Netherlands and was extremely successful that they were able to occupy the territory within only five days. In the early stages of occupation, the German presence did not have much affect on the Frank’s and Anne’s life, yet, a few years later, changes began taking form. Anne and her older sister Margot were forced to enter a new school for Jewish students and other students were not required to learn in the same place. Jews were violated from their rights as their privileges as a normal human and citizen were fading away. Jews were forbidden to work for the government, be in the same school as non-Jews, and must hand over their companies to Nazis. Every they go, they had to carry identification papers stamped with a big “J” which identifies that the person is Jewish. Furthermore, Jews were required to wear a bright yellow star in order to inform all around them that they are Jewish. Jews could not even be in the same public space as non-Jews! Life was certainly getting harsh for the peculiar race, yet, as time flied by, matters only took a darker turn. Anne Frank received a significant present on the 13th birthday; a dairy! Anne grew very fond of her diary and decided to write in it right away. She wrote her life events, interests, and her deepest thoughts down. She treated her diary as a friend and even proceeded to naming it “Kitty”. One dreadful morning, the postman has left horrid news, since Margot was being reposted to work duty in Germany, which only signified that she would suffer and never return. However, if she does not agree to go, then Nazis will harm both her and her family. Edith and Otto were aware that this day would come and acted quickly. Otto has known a hiding place behind is company, and the Frank family decided to hide. They brought as many clothes as they possibly could without the need of attracting attention of looking suspicious. Otto’s work colleagues provided help and aided in furnishing the house and supplies. The house is made up of two stories and an attic, where all the supplies is stored. The Frank family lived on the lower floor, and occupied two rooms. Edith shared one room and Edith and Margot shared Otto while the other room. Later that November, a new acquaintance joins the Franks and hid as well from Nazis. Later, a new family joins as well. Through many years, not being able to leave their hiding place, Anne wrote and wrote in her diary, yet one day, someone who’s identity is unknown betrayed the hiding Jews and reported them to the police. Thus the families were split apart and had to go separate ways and submit to harsh terms and labor. The family began to die off, and Anne herself dies March 1945, du to hunger, sickness, and an excessive amount of exhaustion, just after her sister, Margot, died as well. Otto was reveled to be the soul survivor of the family. Anne has inspired countless of children and adults, yet one wonders what would she have added to her diary knowing it would be the last passage she wrote? Who would she miss most? What would she do? How did she survive up until she died? The dreadful Holocaust had significant consequences. In January 1933, Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany, thus the Holocaust began. The Holocaust then ended in 1945, when the Allied, finally, defeated Nazis. It is believed that about six million Jews and five million other habitants were brutally murdered, consisting of men woman and children, between 1933 and 1945. The Nazis saw Jew children as an immense threat as they were the ones who would grow up and be responsible for a whole other generation of Jews. Thus, children immensely suffocated and suffered as they were a vital target, and many children asphyxiated in cattle cars on their way to campus. Jews’ rights in Germany were altered and barely consider tolerant. In September 15th, 1935, before the Holocaust ended, Jews were kept out and were not included in public life as the Nuremberg Laws were published. These laws forbid Jews to marry Germans as well as removing their citizenship. After all, we are all humans and look farily alike. Some charatistic that were believed all Jews shared a commonly structured long noise, and a small phallus, as they would cut the top off at an early stage of life. However, Muslims, too, had similar characteristic, therefore, the Nazis ended up killing others than the Jews. The Nazis gave out a strict command to all Jews and ordered them to wear a yellow Star of David on their clothing ; thus they could be easily identified and targeted. The Ottoman Turks, originally centered in modern-day Turkey, began spreading into Europe and the Middle East, conquering a significant amount of lands.In the early 16th century, after defeating the Mamliks, the Ottoman Empire began ruling the Holy Land, and maintained rule until 1922, the end of World War I, where Great Britain gained control of Palestine. The Ottomans were valued tolerance as they allowed religious committees and groups to practice their religion, keep their laws, and traditions. In the Ottoman empire and rule, the religious minorities in the Holy Land where the Christians and Jews, and they both went through glorious times where both were exposed to wealth and success, however, they went through harsh times and periods of persecution. After the war ended, and after the Holocaust, numerous people wanted to come to aid for survivor Jews, thus, the world leaders decided that the Jews should have their own country. The intriguing and highly informative account about a drastic event, which proved to be well written and highly informative as well as sensual, guaranteed to make your knowledge about Anne Frank and Jews during the Holocaust increase, and how she became the idol and powerful symbol she became even in the absence of her presence. With every word read, with every new word acquired, with every new fact and information procured, one will surely reach the last few pages wiser and more information about Anne Frank and Jewish life under Nazis, their goals, achievements, trials, challenges, affect on lives, and invading land. One would be more familiar with Anne Frank and the impact she had on others at the start of the book. I would recommend this book to all yet, the truth is sometimes over simplified and over exaggerated. This book exceeds in length, thus I would recommend this book to those who are able to read till the end! One should not fear weariness, for this book is active and deep, as well as divert, for it attracts the reader and connects the heart to the mind into a profound tragedy, relived and retold like never before. The author writes upon facts, however, leaves a slight scent of personal opinion, as her voice is heard. The information provided is believed to be accurate for the information is gathered through many aspects and among many different points of view; thus, this book is far from being judgmental. I recommend this book to intrigued readers, who aren’t judgmental and are intrigued by World War I and those affected by it. As one can see, as the story provides all elements necessary to obtain and acquire vital facts and information about Anne Frank and the Holocaust, thus this intriguing account it is targeted to the sympathetic eyes, to those who seek knowledge and the open minded ones; those who hold no grudge. Thus I strongly advocate qualified readers to read the book and unravel their confusion and add to their knowledge about the Holocaust and Anne Frank. GO AHEAD AND READ THE BOOK!

    A vivid telling of the horrors of the holocaust. I can’t fathom the numbers nor the experiences, but can only admire the strength of the survivors. Helps me appreciate the freedom that I have today and be grateful for what I have and where I am.

Also it must be really hard to be stuck in that little place with a lot of people in it and there was really no type of social life going on. When they talked about the robbery that happened to the store that was below them I felt scared for them because that was a really big risk because the police would come after or the robbers could find them as well. Over all this book was really good and I can not wait to read the next book.

    Anne Frank and the Children of the Holocaust is about how the Frank Family encountered many struggles because of their religion. The Franks had to move from house to house because of various discriminations happening to the Jews because of the Germans. And because of this, when the time flew by for Margot and Anne they had to say good bye to all their friends and relatives and good bye to freedom.

The book talks about how not only did the Frank Family suffer but also did all the Jews who had to be put in concentration camps. The theme of this book is that when there is something bad happening, in the end there is always something good that comes out from it. What I didn't like about this book is how the Germans made the Jews suffer a lot that it came to the point that Jews couldn't get any freedom and how many families died just because they had a different belief.

    I can't stop crying. This book broke my heart. This well written piece contained such an insightful account of what went on before, during and after the war; it was hell. Although Anne Frank's diary was beautifully written, it was somewhat detached to the horrors of the Holocaust due to their hiding in the Annex. Anne Frank and the Children of the Holocaust offered stories of other children and also what happened after Anne's last journal entry, and it leaves me torn.

Genocide is disgusting, I'm sad and appalled that men can be capable of such evil.

    The story of Anne Frank stands on its own as do the stories of the other children. The reason I only gave this three stars is that the author's writing is weak at times. Sometimes sentences switch from sounding like the writing of a professional author to that of a high school student. I'm also not sure her facts are always accurate based on other books and autobiographies I've recently read about this subject. I think she has a tendency to over simplify or exaggerate as well on occasion. The ma The story of Anne Frank stands on its own as do the stories of the other children.

    First of all, I have to admit that I haven't read Anne Frank's diary yet (which I feel ashamed about myself). Secondly, Carol -- although her tendency to include figures can be a block for the images -- is a great author. While reading the book, there are some parts which I know that I won't remember because there were too many figures, and dates. Yet in a sense, it is good to know that the numbers are there. I can always check what happened at when if I really need to in the future. Books on th First of all, I have to admit that I haven't read Anne Frank's diary yet (which I feel ashamed about myself).

If I were a teacher, I would definitely make my students read this.

    I gave Anne Frank and the Children of the Holocaust 5 stars. My reason for the 5 stars was that I loved it and never wanted to put it down. During it I just sat and became scared for my life. The book makes you feel like you are going to be killed by a Nazi soldier. A small smile came once, when Anne Frank and her family went to hide. That is why I gave it 5 stars.

    This book took me awhile to read, but I am so glad I did read it. It is so sad how these children had to live part of their childhood. They were all so young to die. It is so sad how some of these children die. If you have time I would read this book.It is a great history book and is interesting how they survived in hiding for that long. Carol Ann Lee really did a great job on this book.

    My Civics 7th grade students read "Anne Frank and the Children of the Holocaust." The book is age appropriate and content related. It gives a human perspective of the Holocaust, meaning this wasn't just a military agenda, human being inflicted cruel treatment upon men, women, and children.

    It was a sad thing to learn that maybe Anne could have survived...if she would not have lost hope. If she would have remained strong and not let go of hope,,,which is all she had,,,maybe three weeks later she could have been on her way to reuniting with her dad.

    An excellent look at not only Anne Frank but the forgotten children of the Holocaust. May all their souls rest in peace.

    This biography made a person's life seem like a story, rather than a list of facts. I was truly intrigued. This biography made a person's life seem like a story, rather than a list of facts. I was truly intrigued.

    This was a book that delved more deeply into the children of the holocaust including Anne Frank and her family and who might have turned them in to the Gestapo.

    Extremely detailed and interesting. Great for kids with projects, or those just want to expand their knowledge. The pictures were interesting to look at too.

    This book broke my heart with so much respect for those people who've greatly suffered and died during the Holocaust. This book broke my heart with so much respect for those people who've greatly suffered and died during the Holocaust.
