Treasures From The Attic

Mirjam Pressler/ Phoenix, £9.99

ANNE Frank wrote a diary from the age of 13 as she hid for over two years in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse escaping the horrors of Nazi occupation.

Here Pressler, the editor of the definite edition of the Diary, has woven a wealth of recently discovered letters, documents and photos of Anne and her family into a family saga.

Included are letters from Anne herself, Otto Frank's correspondence from Auschwitz and his poignant descriptions of searching for his family on his release.

This moving book, which reads like an epic novel, recounts the story of Anne's family before, during and after the war.
