    I was not so enthusiastic when I started to read this book Oh please another Holocaust novel I said to myself This is my 5th and I thought that I started to hate spending hours reading another 300 page book about the atrocities perpetuated by the Germans However Tata J said that I should read this book after THE HIDDEN LIFE OF OTTO FRANK by Carol Ann Lee to which I gave 4 stars so just like a dutiful younger brother I obligedHe is right The reason is that this book is encompassing better researched and has details both in micro and macro levels Micro means what transpired inside 14 Pieter van den Zandestraat where Myrtil Frank family hid but also what was happening outside even to the level of Hitler and Joseph Goebbels The book also managed to present the parallels between Otto Frank and Myrtil Frank's families in terms of their experiences as onderduikers hiding Jews Gordon Sanders covered what happened to Otto Frank Edith Margot and Anne while he extensively covered what happened to Myrtil Flory Dorritt and Sybil The first family who hid in Amsterdam perished except Otto while the second who hid in Hague all survived I believed that there must be a hand of God working somewhere because Anne Frank's diary became famous though she died This Sander's book is not as successful as the diary though the Myrtil's family did not dieHowever I should not read one Holocaust book after the other The practice is just depriving me of precious sleep Once again thank you Tata J for lending me another good book Happy Birthday today Celebrate life as is it short and thank God that there are no gas chambers in the Philippines

    Apart from the family history or as told alongside the family history a great detailed account of the Dutch governments actions and the Dutch jews during the war I really got a sense of the times and the climate An unusual history lesson of what was happening in a country people think of in a benign light as they were occupied by the Germans Covers the time before the occupation and after Fascinating
