Waterstones Says

A remarkable true story of friendship, courage and the barbarity of Nazism, the eagerly-awaited memoir by Anne Frank's best friend adds a fresh dimension to one of the Second World War's most heartbreaking moments.

The long-awaited, moving memoir of holocaust survivor Hannah Pick-Goslar.

When five-year-old Hannah Pick-Goslar and her family fled Nazi Germany to live in Amsterdam, she soon struck up a friendship with a precocious, outspoken and fun-loving girl named Anne Frank. For several blissful years, the girls were inseparable, enjoying carefree childhood games and sleepovers in their neighbourhood of Rivierenbuurt.

Then, one day in 1942, two best friends' lives were about to change for ever. As the Nazi occupation intensified, Anne and the Frank family vanished. As Hannah puzzled over the fate of her friend, hoping she was safe, her own family's fate began to unfold: they were captured and taken to Westerbork transit camp, before being transported to Bergen-Belsen.

Amid horrific conditions and surrounded by death, Hannah heard astonishing news about her dear friend and risked her life to help her.

'As a girl I witnessed the world I loved crumble and vanish, destroyed by senseless hatred, and with it, my best friend Anne.'

In an incredible memoir of hope, strength and defiance, Hannah's story of survival is testament to the enduring power of friendship, love and remembering.

'One of the most moving, profound and important books I've ever read.' - Rangan Chatterjee

“Poignant”

I read this book courtesy of NetGalley. It's a poignant real life story beautifully written and a definite must read. Whilst it is amazing that anyone could survive the atrocities of the Nazi concentration camp... More
