family were found and taken to a concentration camp where Anne died. After
the war, her diary was found and published is read by millions of people
each year. This new book is told by Anne's friend Hannah Goslar. Hannah's
reactions to what is happening to her dear friend are told. When Anne disappears,
Hannah believes that she is safe in Switzerland. She has no idea that Anne
is living in an attic with other families. Eventually, Hannah and her family
are arrested and put into concentration camps. The story tells of Hannah's
treatment during these times. When Hannah and Anne do finally reunite,
it is at a concentration camp before Anne is killed. This book is a wonderful
companion to Anne's diary.
