No single person better represents the face of the Holocaust than Anne Frank.  As a 13-year-old Jewish girl living in wartime Amsterdam, she hid out with seven other Jews for over two years.  During this time, she kept a diary of her thoughts, feelings, and experiences.  Eventually the Frank family was discovered and deported; Anne later died of typhus in Bergen-Belsen at the age of 15.  But her diary lives on.

 

Millions of people know of Anne’s story, but very few know of the many problems with it.  As it turns out, Anne’s tale is rife with absurdities, logical problems, inconsistencies, and incoherent claims.  Here, Japanese researcher Ikuo Suzuki deconstructs Anne’s famous dairy, exposing the many issues lying just below the surface.  In the process, he unmasks the truth: that the notorious diary was likely written by a middle-aged Jewish man who worked in conjunction with Anne’s father, Otto, to foist upon the public a deceptive and highly misleading story of a young teenage girl who perished in a German camp. 

 

Here, for the first time, Suzuki presents a thorough, detailed, and highly readable critique of the global bestseller that is Anne Frank’s Diary.  Far and away the best critical analysis of the famous diary, this book fills a badly need gap in revisionist literature.
