<b>This is a fascinating and very moving account of a remarkable friendship.</b> "For years after Anne Frank's diary was published, the identity of her 'best friend' was secret. Then [author Jacqueline] van Maarsen owned up. Now she has written about the Anne she knew - vain, pretty, sexually curious. The little girl who giggled with Jacqueline van Maarsen has become the face of six million victims of the Holocaust, and, to many, a Jewish martyr."- <i>Sunday Telegraph</i> Jacqueline van Maarsen's father was Dutch, her mother French; he was Jewish, she a Catholic. Jacqueline was forced to go to a special school for Jewish children - it was there that she met Anne Frank and they immediately became friends. Unlike Anne Frank, Jacqueline van Maarsen escaped deportation. It was only after the war she found out the truth about her best friend's fate.
