This memoir is the amazing story of striving to live a normal life, when everything arounds you becomes more and more abnormal. It is a story about friendships and dreams of romances, a story about daily struggles and small victories set against a backdrop of the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam and all the dangers that time held for Jews in the city. Through this remarkable book, we get to meet a remarkable real-life heroine whose determination, optimism and wonderful spirit are the qualities that both ensured enjoyment of life as well as the tenacity to survive. When Hannah and her family are arrested and transported to Bergen Belsen (where Hannah has one final and emotional reunion with Anne Frank), it is Hannah's courage that saves the lives of herself and her younger sister. This is a truly remarkable book that tells us more about the lives of ordinary people during World War Two than any history book can.show more
