Read full description of the books The Anne Frank Case: Simon Wiesenthal's Search for the Truth:I’ve always admired Simon Wiesenthal and the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
This is a book about his life, his experiences as a young person then, after the Nazis invaded his homeland, in various concentration camps, his dedication after WWII to hunting down Nazis who participated in atrocities and bringing them to justice. He also recorded names of Nazi officers who behaved well and helped him or were otherwise less brutal than they could have been.
The title of this book refers to an incident that took place in 1958, when teens caused a commotion at a performance of The Diary of Anne Frank, claiming the diary was a hoax, saying that Anne Frank had never lived or been murdered by the Nazi regime. Wiesenthal made it his mission to find the man who arrested Anne Frank and her family as proof against this claim. But, this book is about so much more than just that one search.
This is a gripping tale, very suspenseful, very moving. I am in even more awe of Wiesenthal. He was remarkable, brilliant, and he was very lucky to have survived. It’s a compelling true story. Because of its graphic description of violent atrocities I can’t really recommend this for children younger than eleven.
This book was researched thoroughly and in the back of the book there are various resources listed and a glossary and an index. It’s a wonderful, and well deserved, tribute to Wiesenthal and his life’s work.
I really appreciated the photographs that are in the back of the book. The overall look of the book’s illustrations is pleasing and they have an appropriate atmosphere about them, but I really didn’t enjoy the way Anne Frank looked in any of the pictures of her.
