Summary"In the spring of 1945 15-year old Anne Frank died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. This book provides a portrait of her life and gives an account of historical developments between 1929 and 1945. The changes in Germany after Hitler was elected in 1933 and daily life in occupied Holland after 1940 forced people to make a choice: collaborate, resist or remain passive." —Back cover
