This is a True story told in the first person by a young Jewish girl, in the most tender and optimistic language of the heart. Her sad life and living conditions for the duration of the Second World War are stoically tackled and I for one came to love and cherish her as a loyal, gentle friend. My heart weeps for the loss of such an incredible human being - who in the Spring of her life had to endure such hardship - and yet, almost to the end, remained light-hearted, loving and gentle - and wise beyond her years! War is a terrible thing - but leaves us all these unsung heroes, who can be held up as candles in our dark times - as examples for human beings to continue to strive against all odds to retain their dignity even when life seems impossible. Make Ann Frank your friend - read her words, and place her gently - with love -into your heart for eternity.
