Description: A touching and intimate autobiography, this account recalls the author s remarkable childhood friendship with Anne Frank while attending a special school for Jewish children in Amsterdam during the late 1930s. With the story of her initial meeting and bonding with Anne Frank, Jacqueline van Maarsen s memoir recollects her family s near escape from the Netherlands only months after the Frank family went into hiding or moved to Switzerland, as van Maarsen was lead to believe and provides a revealing look into life under Nazi occupation. Written by a one-time friend who only discovered the truth about Anne s fate after the war ended, this memoir is a moving, firsthand recollection of a youthful friendship in the foreboding days of World War II.
