This Just In… Anne Frank, Silent Witnesses: Reminders of a Jewish Girl’s Life by Ronald Wilfred Jansen

Ronald Wilfred Jansen visited Anne Frank’s home addresses in Frankfurt am Main, Aachen and Amsterdam; her hiding place the Secret Annex; and the Westerbork, Auschwitz-Birkenau and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps where she was imprisoned. His book describes her history and the objects that today still remind us of the environment in which she lived. 

Jansen’s motivation for writing the book was that it was one of the last opportunities he would have to contact the people who knew Anne. As a result, Jansen was able to uncover some new facts about this remarkable young woman and her world. 

Other contemporaries of Frank’s also contributed fascinating information about her surroundings. By tracing her footsteps, the author gained a more complete picture of Anne Frank and her environment.
