The Footsteps of Anne Frank

August 1st 1944 – The Diary of a Young Girl ended abruptly. Three days later the Gestapo arrived seized Anne Frank and her family from their Amsterdam attic and started them on a journey to Auschwitz, and then to Belsen.
Ernst Schnabel interviewed 42 of the people mentioned by Anne in her diary. He began with her father and many other close relatives and friends.
They describe her character in an open and honest way and the importance of this book is not only its fascinating insight into who Anne Frank really was, but also its closeness to the events and people involved.
Here too, is the full dramatic story of her family’s betrayal and its disastrous aftermath in the concentration camps.
