There is so much information crammed into this slim book that I have no idea how or where to even start writing a review Some chapters I enjoyed and others not so muchA warning to future readers the print is so incredibly small that after 10 pages I would have to lay the book aside because of eye strain causing a pounding headache This is a collection of 31 essays on the diary and Anne Frank's other writings its various incarnations in terms of different versions or scripts the historical setting of the book and interviews with people who either knew Anne Frank Miep Gies a neighbor a school friend or who were involved in the events after it Simon Wiesenthal etc As is usual with critical theory the opinions run the gamut from highly interesting to those who refer to sentimentality in the same way many people would refer to cyanide What this volume does accomplish is placing together a fairly wide variety of criticism and historical background into one volumeI would also warn that it is rather an exhausting read emotionally at times Okay didn't really finish Some of it was interesting and some just sounds like the elite jumping on the AF bandwagon It was a bad thing the Holocaust and she Anne Frank was a human being who did the best she could with the very bad hand she was dealt Hopefully we can all learn something from that to avoid contributing to hatred and anger in the world and contributegive to peaceful pursuits That is the point of these studies I would think it's not a joy ride Peace
