Tales from the Secret Annexe also includes twenty-eight further short stories, reminiscences and compositions. Although she never finished the novel, she sketched the remainder of the plot in her diary entry of 11 May 1944. Any sense of safety disappeared when the Germans marched into neutral Holland in May 1940 and the deportation of the Jewish population commenced. In the spring of 1942 Otto Frank began to prepare a hiding place in the upstairs rooms at the back of the Opekta building and, on 6 July 1942, the Franks moved in to what was to become known as the Secret Annexe.

Tales from the Secret Annex is a collection of miscellaneous prose fiction and non-fiction written by Anne Frank while she was in hiding during the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands.

A dangerous half hour in the Secret Annex. Reading at dusk didn't work, so she took out the binoculars to peek from the dark Secret Annex into the brightly lit rooms of the neighbours who still had electricity. Between 8:30 and 9:00 am, the people in hiding had to keep very quiet, and the toilet and washbasin could not be used, as the pipes happened to run straight through the warehouse. The warehouse workers started earlier than the helpers in the offices. A few neighbours had just started dinner, a family was filming, and a dentist was still at work. Anne was pleasantly surprised.

Michel Mok (Translator). Cady’s Life is a novel that after reading the fragments of in Tales From The Secret Annexe, I kind of want to write an ending for but at the same time, I don’t. I decided to read Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex after I finished her Diary. Her Diary (The Diary of Anne Frank) was still on my mind and having had this Kindle book for years, it was about time to read. I think Anne had a potential ending in mind which sadly never got written. I did enjoy most of the content included in the collection.

Tales from the Secret Annexis a complete collection of Anne Frank's . This book completes the portrait of this remarkable and talented young author.

Tales from the Secret Annexis a complete collection of Anne Frank's lesser-known writings: short stories, fables, personal reminiscences, and an unfinished novel. Here, too, are portions of the diary originally withheld from publication by her father. Hiding from the Nazis in the "Secret Annexe" of an old office building in Amsterdam, a thirteen-year-old girl named Anne Frank became a writer. The now famous diary of her private life and thoughts reveals only part of Anne's story, however.

Anne Frank's stories display a real gift. With sensitivity and intelligence, she came to grips in her imagination with a world of which she had no experience.

This is a necessary addition to "Anne Frank - The Diary of a Young Girl" because there are references to stories and fablies in this book from which Anne Frank, in her diary, refers. This is a book worth reading, because it not only answers any questions the reader of the original book might have, but it contains stories reflecting Anne's outlook on life. Anne, in spite of her captivity (hiding from the Nazis), was still an optimist and looked upon humanity as mostly good.
In the first part of the book, you have the impression that the entires should be in her main diary itself, because it tells of her situation, her hiding, and her impressions of her fellow "captives" and how they react in life. For example, in rationing food, one person is greedy and wants the most, or the best, for himself. Some are selfish and self centered in other ways, and the only person Anne really respects is her own father, for he is the most understanding of her, and possibly her boyfriend, Peter. A young child, especially a girl, can see a lot in adults that they cannot see in themselves. Anne seemed to be the most aware of what was happening around her. She was, aside from her father, the most mature person there.
The book then proceeds to telling stories, then fables, up to an unfinished tale, "Cady's Life."
This stories, surprisingly, do not reflect gloom and doom of the real world (except Cary's Life, in some parts, telling of the Nazis) but convey the message of doing good and giving everything you have, getting much more in return, though the latter must not be the motive. A fairy inherits a large sum of money, but gives it all away withing a year to the needy, but is revered by them forever afterward. A girl who loved and cared for her grandmother then loses her, but the grandmother then beomes her guardian angel. Other tales involve animals, still others involve teaching a lesson in life, and others tell you not to be obsessed with fame and fortune, for they are not what they seem. None of them end tragically.
This shows Anne's observation of life, her maturity, and her optimism towards humanity. This was definitely very challenging for Anne, with death and destruction hovering over her, surrounded by seemingly unpleasant people, except her father and boyfriend, though there were people trying to hide her that show her compassion.
This is a lesson to anyone reading this book. If Anne can have a good attitude, despite her present situation and what was going to happen to her (she was captured by the Nazis and put into a concentration camp, where she died of typhus), then perhaps other people in not so bad surroundings can handle what life gives them, good or bad.
This volume contains several essays or stories that also appear in the diary along with a few pieces of fiction and the novel Anne was writing. I enjoyed reading this.
Throw her heart
Anne Frank is one of my favorite people. Her diary was my favorite to teach in the English class. When she had a fault, she didn't blame her nature for the shortcoming but devoted herself to improve. The definitive copy of Anne Frank, the one she wrote before her father Otto got ahold of it is the much better choice.
im glad i got this book it was so eye opening and sad at the time.. i remember when i was in Germany and the wall was up between east and west and it was sad.. its not the same but her story is great..
Best book ever
Not only does it have her diary,
But it has some story's and novels she was writing.
It's great. Her novels are amazing
inside the head of Anne Frank great read
I purchased this book for my grand girls because we have been talking about how hard it was for this particular girl to grow up, hiding from the German solders. In fact, she didn't grow up at all, she was killed shortly before the liberation.
Her journal, which is now this book, is real and honest and touching. Such innocence. Such trajedy. So sad because of it's truth.
Having never read The Diary of Anne Frank this was new. Although I ordered both Tales from the Secret Annex and the Diary of Anne Frank together I opted to read this one first. I find it pretty amazing the thoughts of a young girl written so well. Her stories are catching. A must read.
