Summary"Van Galen Last and Wolfswinkel attempt in this book to comprehend the individual voices of some Dutch Jews (in their diaries, memoirs, novels) in view of the ever more frightening sequence of anti-Jewish measures being perpetrated by the Nazis. The reader becomes acquainted not only with Anne Frank but also with other young Dutch Jews who wrote acutely of their extreme experiences... The result is a series of very compelling personal accounts of the Holocaust set in historical perspective." —Back cover
