""Beyond Anne Frank is so beautiful and thoughtfully written that I couldn't put it down. Diane Wolf's voice is human and humanistic, without glossing over any painful realities. She probes the subject from an impressive array of angles, considering a wide variety of types of experiences. This book is extraordinarily fine and I enthusiastically recommend it.""â¿¿Lynn Davidman, author of Tradition in a Rootless World: Women Turn to Orthodox Judaism and Motherloss ""A deeply moving testimony to the experience of Nazi violence as embedded in the everyday life of children hidden in Gentile homes in the Netherlands. In finding the child's voice within the adult's narrative, this book makes a major contribution to our understanding of the vulnerability of children to the politics of hate.""â¿¿Veena Das, author of Life and Words: Violence and the Descent into the Ordinary ""A remarkable piece of work. Beyond Anne Frank is sensitively researched and told, morally important, and politically consequential.""â¿¿Jeffrey K. Olick, author of In the House of the Hangman: The Agonies of German Defeat, 1943-1949 ""Beyond Anne Frank stands on its own as a humanistic engagement with a tragic moment in twentieth-century European history, written by a demonstrably gentle, compassionate witness to the tragedy.""â¿¿Jeffrey Prager, author of Presenting the Past: Psychoanalysis and the Sociology of Misremembering
