This valuable addition to the literature of the Holocaust assembles for the first time the three known versions of Frank's diary--the original, a self-edited version of same, and yet another edited by her father. It also contains a variety of related studies and reports, e.g., handwriting and paper analyses, new documentation regarding the Frank family's arrest, and a wealth of information about the diary's troubled publication history. Prepared under the auspices of the Netherlands State Institute for War Documentation, this authoritative volume will silence forever those who have denied the diary's authenticity. It honors and enriches a story that has inspired most of the civilized world for over 40 years. Mandatory for all but the smallest libraries.-- Mark R. Yerburgh, Trinity Coll. Lib., Burlington, Vt.
