Unmasking Anne Frank: Her Famous Diary Exposed as a Literary Fraud


SKU: 998 Categories: ,


By Ikuo Suzuki. Edited by Thomas Dalton. No 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. Anne’s tale is rife with absurdities, logical problems, inconsistencies and incoherent claims. Here, Japanese researcher Ikuo Suzuki deconstructs the famous dairy. 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 misleading story of a young teenage girl who perished in a German camp. Here, for the first time, is a thorough, detailed and highly readable critique of the global bestseller that is The Diary of Anne Frank. Far and away the best critical analysis of the famous diary, this book fills a badly needed gap in Revisionist literature. Softcover, 192 pages, #998.
