In this graphic novel the famous story of one young Jewish girl’s experience of the Holocaust is brought to life. Anne Frank’s early life is happy and comfortable, but in 1930s Europe, Germany’s political and economical problems lead to the rise of the Nazis and the eventual persecution of Jews.
Anne and her family were living in Amsterdam when Germany invaded the Netherlands early in WWII. Persecution of Jewish people came to Amsterdam and the Franks were forced into hiding to avoid arrest, simply for being Jewish. For two years Anne Frank kept a diary of her family’s life in hiding until her eventual discovery and death.
Anne’s diary was published by her father Otto Frank in her memory and for all those who died in the Holocaust.
