Synopsis: Hiding from the Nazis in the "Secret Annexe" 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 completes the portrait of this remarkable and talented young author.
Tales from the Secret Annex is a complete collection of Anne Frank's lesser-known writings: short stories, fables, personal reminiscences, and an unfinished novel. Here, too, are portions of the diary originally withheld from publication by her father. By turns fantastical, rebellious, touching, funny, and heartbreaking, these writings reveal the astonishing range of Anne Frank's wisdom and imagination--as well as her indomitable love of life. Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex is a testaments to this determined young woman's extraordinary genius and to the persistent strength of the creative spirit.

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.
