New book tells Anne Frank's tale

New book tells Anne Frank's tale
 
A new book about Anne Frank, the iconic Jewish teenager who was killed by the Nazis, claims to be the most comprehensive story of her life so far.

The book, The Life of Anne Frank, has been released to mark the 60th anniversary of the publication of the girl's famous diaries.

It tells the story of her life before she went into hiding in Amsterdam.

The publishers say they want to keep her story alive in a new generation with lessons that are relevant today.

"Will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies."

That is what Anne Frank asked in her diary. She was never to know that her wish would be fulfilled, as her journal was discovered and published after her death, and became one of the most famous and poignant tales of persecution under the Nazis.

Family photos

The Life of Anne Frank, published by Macmillan books, aims to fill in many of the lesser known details about her, such as her life before she went into hiding, her arrest and how she was betrayed, the BBC's Geraldine Coughlan reports.

It is written by people working for the Anne Frank House, the museum dedicated to her in Amsterdam, and is filled with family photos and other contemporary details.

Anne Frank and her family hid in a cramped secret annexe in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands for two years between 1942, when she was 13, and 1944.

She kept a diary of her life and efforts to stay hidden.

But her family was betrayed and she died, aged 15, in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp shortly before the end of the war.
