Simon Wiesenthal is known primarily for his work in tracking down Nazi war criminals—but he also took on the challenge of identifying the SS officer who arrested Anne Frank’s family in order to prove to doubters that Anne Frank did indeed exist, and that her diary was not a fake.

I put this book on hold, not realizing it was a childrens' book. I looked through it, and it seemed interesting. The drawings are VERY well-done, and pleasing to the eyes.

I didn't read this book fully because I prefer biographies for adults and teens, but I would definitely recommend it for kids and tweens.
