The candid, poignant, unforgettable writing of the young girl whose own life story has become an everlasting source of courage and inspiration.
Hiding from the Nazis in the “Secret Annex” of an old office building in Amsterdam, a thirteen-year-old girl named Anne Frank became a writer. The now famous diary of her private life and thoughts reveals only part of Anne’s story, however. This book rounds out the portrait of this remarkable and talented young author.
Newly translated, complete, and restored to the original order in which Anne herself wrote them in her notebook, Tales from the Secret Annex is a collection of Anne Frank’s lesser-known writings: short stories, fables, personal reminiscences, and an unfinished novel, Cady’s Life.

Anne Frank is known worldwide for her moving and powerful Diary written whilst hiding from the Nazis. Less well known are these stories, fables, personal reminiscences and an unfinished novel - now re-issued after being out of print for many years. Her humour, unflinching honesty and her wisdom - all evident in The Diary of Anne Frank - are equally present in these Tales, rendering it an essential part of her legacy.About the Author:
Anne Frank and her family fled to Holland from Germany in 1933 to escape the Nazis but when in May 1940 Holland was invaded, the Jews were trapped. In the summer of 1942 the Frank family went into hiding in a secret annexe off her father's office. They were eventually betrayed, arrested and transported to concentration camps where they all died, except for Anne's father. Anne Frank's name has become synonymous with the Holocaust, and the millions killed by a murderous ideology.
