4.0 out of 5 stars A Holocaust Story - with a difference, 3 Oct 2004
Martin Bull - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Frank Family That Survived (Hardcover)
The appalling fact of the Holocaust is depressing in itself - is this 'another Holocaust book' ? NO - it is very different !
The author skilfully tells the story of his own family, from a successful life in Weimar Berlin, through flight from the Nazis and ultimately spending 1000 days 'underground' - living in hiding - in Holland ; with fear of betrayal or capture a constant undertone.
The family's story, particularly the hopes and fears of the two young daughters, are skilfully set against a backcloth of some of WWII's most dramatic events - the German invasion of Holland, the battles of Arnhem and the Ardennes, and the dreadful 'hunger winter' which is still largely unknown outside the Netherlands.
Why the 'difference' ? Unlike countless others, this family survives - to enjoy a new life in the USA. In this - true - story, the 'bad guys' do NOT win.
This should be a 5-star book, but for some reason the publisher has not included an index.
But,introduced by eminent historian Sir John Keegan, 'The Frank Family That Survived' tells an important story - read, and be uplifted !
