A story worth the telling, though it would have been an idea to get someone else to read it - Sander's voice is very drab. Moment plane's landing gear sparks with flames and detaches itself. Mother of British teen in gang rape case says she is 'suffering'. Buddhist monk distracted by cat during five-hour prayers. Hezbollah leader says retaliation should not target American civilians.

  • This book is written by the grandson of Myrtil and Flory Frank. When I first saw the title of the book, I, of course, thought it was saying that the family of Anne Frank had survived. Obviously, that is not true. Myrtil and Flory Frank were German Jews who, with their two daughters, also escaped Germany after Hitler came to power. They moved to Holland, they had family ties there, and also business ties. Unlike Anne Frank and her family who were pretty well hidden during the war, Myrtil and his family lived literally in the mouth of the wolf. They spent nearly three years hiding in a few small rooms of a house in the Hague. The house was owned by one of the four helpers who hid them during the war. It was also very close to Nazi headquarters in that area. Some how, the Franks survived almost three years of hiding, occasionally, Myrtil even ventured out for supplies. He had already spread a rumor in that area that he was a German-Swiss doctor with a wife that was not well. I just loved this book, even though there were a few things that were historically inaccurate. To me, it felt that the author cared so much about his family. I also always enjoy reading a book written by an author that is around the same age as I am. I must admit though, it was a bit eerie seeing all the similarities between the two Frank families. It is so tragic that they both didn't survive. I highly recommend this book, it was a great read.

  • Excellent Ser!

  • The author is the grandson of a Holocaust survivor who was forced, like their name-sake family,that of Anne Frank's, to leave a comfortable life in Germany to escape the diabolic shadow of the Swastika after Hitler took control in the 1930s. They settle in neutral Holland where the blitzkrieg chases up with them. Like Anne Frank this Frank family - father, mother and two daughters - are forced to become "onderduikers" (go into hiding)after the implementation, in 1942, of the Final Solution on Jews in occupied Holland. Unlike the concealment of Anne Frank's hideout this family hide out - for an incredible 1022 days - in a friend's studio apartment where a mere demanding knock on the door would have exposed them. The book also covers the seldom spoken about famine that ravaged Holland in the closing months of the war. In the light of a raid on the street of their hide-out when every dwelling on the street, save their own, was searched by the SS to arrest able bodied men for slave labour in the Reich the question persists, was this luck or divine intervention? If it is the latter such intervention was indeed selective since after Poland the Jews of Holland suffered the highest casualties of the Holocaust (three quarters of their pre-war population)due to the complicity of the Dutch Police in actions for their deportment to the killing machines in the East.

  • This book is a thorough academic account of the events leading up to WWII going back in history before WW1 and on to the innilation of the Jews in Europe and especially in Holland during WW11 with an emphasis on the author's family, "the Frank Family that Survived." The book is very well written if not on the verbose, pretentious side with the author using terms that could easily been suplanted with more commonly used words. I have an excellent vocabulary but had sit with my dictionary at hand to check out many many words and some were not even in the most updated Webster's Dictionary. He compares the similarities of the two Frank families, Anne's and his and then how they separate; I don't believe he was totally accurate in his account of the other Frank family though he does not go into debth regarding them. I wish he had used another title though as this seems to point out unnecessarily the tragedy of the other Frank family. I still recommend the book as there is new information to be had historically.
