Choice Review

For many, the voice of Anne Frank emerging from the secret Amsterdam annex has come to epitomize the fate of countless European Jews before Nazi henchmen deported them to death camps. But although familiar with the Diary itself and its reincarnations, the public knows little about the genesis of Frank's text and its relevance for the Holocaust at large. This convenient anthology assembles 31 previously published essays and reminiscences (many abridged, some sadly truncated, some translated here for the first time), together with prefaces, a chronology, and several appendixes. Part 1 ("History, Biography, and Authenticity") documents the events surrounding Frank's life and her death due to betrayal. In part 2 ("Writer and Rewriter"), the editors provide some critical assessments of the Diary. Part 3 ("Anne Frank on Stage and Screen") deals with the dramatic and film adaptations of the Diary, their often-questionable artistic and historical validity, and their reception. Part 4 ("Memorializing the Holocaust") comprises representative texts leading to appraisal of Frank's significance within past and current Holocaust discourse. Despite some factual inaccuracies and the debatable selection/abridgment of a few contributions, this is an important publication and a must for every library. G. P. Knapp; University of Utah
