Really interesting story, but the dialogue was quite awkward and stilted It was interesting to hear what Anne Frank s classmates thought of her, to find out that a lot of what she wrote about herself and her classmates was considerably exaggerated Definitely read The Diary of Anne Frank before you read this, this book is meant as a sequel, not a stand alone story. This book sounded really wonderful but I was a little wary that it was just trying to trade in on the Anne Frank name That was true to a tiny extent but not in any kind of bad way Really the story didn t need an Anne Frank connection, the stories of each classmate was fascinating on it s own but perhaps they wouldn t have been told without the connection However, just because a story is wonderful doesn t mean the story teller is capable of doing it justice This was a little bit like listenin This book sounded really wonderful but I was a little wary that it was just trying to trade

to Israel This is a MUST READ for teachers teaching The Diary of a Young Girl, Anne Frank and a book that should be in every Holocaust teacher s library It wasn t until around 2001 and the birth of his grandchildren, that Theo Coster began telling his story to students and then others By 2007, when he was eighty, that he told his wife, Ora Rosenblat, that he was tired of reliving the past She suggested that he make a film of his story He thought that would spread his story further then his talks As they talked about it, they thought of expanding the film to include other classmates if they could find them They began to look to see if they could find classmates Through his contact with Nanette Glitz Konig, he got in contact with Jacqueline van Maarsen, Lenie Duyzend, Albert Gomes de Mesquita, and Hannah Goslar They had all attended the Jewish lyceum in Amsterdam Only a small number of Jewish students attended the lyceum and fifty percent of the total number of students survived the war while only twenty percent of the Netherlands Jews survived Their class had thirty students, seventeen of whom were killed by the Nazis In 2011, only thirteen were still alive Eight were in the Netherlands, two in Israel, one in Brazil, and the locations of the last two are unknown The classmates he was able to get together met on the Merwedeplein in Amsterdam The Frank apartment was in one of the surrounding buildings Only Hannah was unable to attend but he had talked to her before he left Israel Each of the survivors briefly tell their story in the book and also give personal information on their interactions with Anne before she disappeared into hiding Nannette, Jacqueline, Hannah, Albert, and Theo were all at Anne s last birthday party and give their memories of that party Lenie, Albert, and Theo went into hiding and avoided the camps Jacqueline s papers were changed to her Mother s Catholic Faith and avoided being persecuted as a Jew Hannah and Nannette were taken from their homes with their families to Westerbork and later to Bergen Belsen where both of them saw Anne just before her death Nannette was able to see Margot as well and to actually hug and hold Anne while Hannah was kept from her by the fences The book is exceptional and very well written and documented It needs to be started when you have time to finish it because it is very difficult to put down Their memories of Anne are fun to read Their own stories are so sad as are all those of Holocaust survivors Their reactions to the places they visited in Amsterdam are eye opening Having visited Amsterdam myself, it was very poignant The need for them to tell their stories and some to write books about their own stories demonstrated the need to keep telling the stories In their eighties, they still feel the need to tell others what happened so it won t happen again and so that the deniers won t be able to say it didn t happen Less about Anne Frank andabout her classmates reminiscing about their own experiences during the war with anecdotes about Anne thrown in here and there That turned out to be fine with me as their stories were interesting The general concensus seemed to be that Anne was just a normal teenage girl who liked to be the center of attention Maybe it s just me, but there were moments I sensed a small amount of bitterness towards Anne, but still sympathy for the fact she was betrayed and didn t Less about Anne Frank andabout her classmates reminiscing about their own experiences during the war with anecdotes about Anne thrown in here and

description of a little boy picking his nose and eating it I m a harsh critic lol Anne Frank as remembered by her friends and classmates.Highly recommended. `Download Book ☠ I nostri giorni con Anna ↙
