|Jacqueline van Maarsen|
My Name is Anne, she said, Anne Frank and Inheriting Anne Frank (Mijn naam is Anne, Anne Frank en De Erflaters)
Instead of contenting herself with writing about Anne
Frank, van Maarsen presents her experiences of war via the story of her
own family and then relates her struggle to uphold the truth in our memories
of her childhood friend. Both moving and gripping, van Maarsen takes hold
of the reader and refuses to let go until the last page is turned.
This family history contains more exciting material than
many a novel. As our memory of the past grows vague or overgrown with
myths, memoires such as these become ever more essential.
Archieves something unique: a clear and personal perspective
on a legend.
An animated autobiographical portrait of life in the Netherlands
during the Nazi terror.
