'Treasures from the Attic are treasures indeed. The book is a thoroughly absorbing and engrossing family history, with fascinating descriptions of people's lives and emotions dating back to the end of the eighteenth century. Through letters and photographs we learn how one Jewish family moved out of the early nineteenth century ghetto of the Frankfurt Judengasse, to feel so accepted by the late nineteenth and early twentieth century that they found a successful bank, holiday around Europe...
and stage lavish celebrations. How fragile it all is that by the mid twentieth century it has all turned to dust. Reading these remarkable letters, poems and family tales shows us how the descriptive powers and strong moral code Anne Frank demonstrated in her famous diary and accompanying stories were inevitable. They were coursing through her DNA.' (GILLIAN WALNES, MBE Co-Founder/Exec Dir, The Anne Frank Trust)
"Their story is the story of countless others and remains required reading" (SUNDAY TIMES - 6.03.11)
The story of Anne Frank, her family and the famous diaries, told with the help of thousands of letters, documents and photographs recently discovered in an attic.See all Product Description

I did get really bogged down in the earliest bits, though, and had to re-read it to work out how all the generations fitted together.
