Who was Who In and Around the Secret Annexe? (English)
Is a more detailed introduction to the thirteen people rendered unforgettable by Anne Frank’s diary – the people in hiding: Otto, Edith, Margot and Anne Frank, Hermann, Auguste and Peter van Pels, and Fritz Pfeffer; and the helpers: Johannes Kleiman, Victor Kugler, Bep Voskuijl and Jan and Miep Gies.
These personal portraits give us a glimpse of their lives from before, during and after the hiding period. What was it like to spend every day in hiding? What did they eat? How did they relate to each other? How were the helpers able to do their office work on top of having eight extra mouths to feed? Did they keep in touch after the war? In addition to these main characters there were also warehouse workers, suppliers and sales representatives who were part of the life in and around 263 Prinsengracht. Their role is highlighted here for the first time. With scores of new photographs and quotes.
