Anne Frank: Beyond the Diary - A Photographic Remembrance
By Rian Verhoeven

This book gives much more insight into How Anne Frank lived and more history about her living conditions during the war. There are many really wonderful pictures of the secret Annex where Anne, her family and several others spent years before they were sent off to concentrations camps.
This book is very touching and makes Anne's death even more devastating, while making the years she was alive, even more precious.

An Excellent book!!

Speaking as someone who has yet to read the diary (I will, I will!) this was still a great overview of what became the phenomenon that is Anne Frank. It adequately personalizes her story and places her as one among many victims and diarists of German atrocities during WWII. Of course hers is the one that became most famous, and only a reading of the diary itself will demonstrate why. This book, meanwhile, also offers a good overview of general events of the time, while providing the Anne Frank timeline and wonderful supplemental photographs.… (more)

Small book with information and photos that explain 'the rest of the story.' Somber.

I loved reading the Diary of Anne Frank in elementary school. When I read this book I thought it brought her story to life. The photos and documents really put into perspective how she lived not just her emotions of the war. In this book you can see more pictures and have a visual of her story. I would use this in a classroom along with the Diary of Anne Frank when teaching the Holocaust. Also you can look at this book when doing an art project with students on how pictures alone can tell such a wonderful story with no words. I would recommend reading this and using it in a classroom.… (more)

Wonderful! I read this one with my ten year old. The pictures help in making Anne seem more realistic and show you her life before it was invaded by tragedy. Truly helpful to those who have read the diary but wish to know more. Recommended!

This went beyond the diary of Anne Frank and was an incredible story. Readers will find pages filled with actual photographs from the Frank family as well as documents from the time of WWII and the holocaust. There are maps and historical notes to help the reader understand where events took place and who certain people were. This book is translated from the Dutch and international influences are found throughout the text. It is almost like an evaluation of Anne Frank's diary explaining all of the important details that she talked about in her original diary along with facts and quotes from other witnesses during this time in history. You follow the Franks from the time of Anne's birth to her father, Otto's death at age 91. Very moving and sad but highly recommended.… (more)

I would use this book as a way to introduce my class to Anne Frank, before reading The Diary of a Young Girl. Anne Frank Beyond the Diary is a quintessential collection of source material that creates the world of 1940s Europe. It has everything that one might look for when studying a subject in depth: scans from the diary, scans of Anne’s fiction writing, photographs of the secret hiding place, family photographs, Nazi documents, maps, newspaper clippings, postcards, et cetera. It moves along more or less chronologically. With asides that give the reader insights into what was happening to the society outside of the Secret Annex. It would be a great companion to the diary. Ideally if the kids are reading the diary in their Language Arts class, they could be reading Beyond the Diary in a Social Studies class.… (more)

My Mom had me read this book years ago, and then I pulled it off the shelf for this class. This is a story of a terrible time in our worlds history and the experience of a girl and her family. It was hard to read/look at when I was younger this book was hard to digest, when I read/looked at it a couple weeks ago it was still hard. This book was well written, it really paints a great picture. The pictures are very hard to see.… (more)
