  1. Anne Frank was a figure whom I’ve admired for most of my life, knowing what she’s been through and how she managed to pass on the perspective of a Jew during World War II through literature. However, there’s still so much we don’t know about her and her family, so I believe this biography will help me understand much more about their lives!
