Read full description of the books Searching for Anne Frank: Letters from Amsterdam to Iowa:"In the fall of 1939, ten-year-old Juanita Wagner of Danville, Iowa, picked a name from a list of pen pals provided by her teacher. She chose a girl her own age who lived in Amsterdam. The girl's name was Anne Frank." "Through firsthand reports and interviews with Juanita's sister, Betty, friends of both Juanita and Anne Frank, as well as never-before-published photographs, Susan Goldman Rubin weaves the story of two girls - one in America and one in the Netherlands - against the backdrop of pending World War II, its brutal reality, and it aftermath." In alternating chapters, Goldman Rubin describes the lives of Juanita and Anne before the war begins, then continues to tell their stories, as well as those of their sisters, Betty and Margot, as the war progresses. Juanita, Betty, and their mother witness the war from afar, aware of its presence only through radio, film clips, rationing, and watching schoolmates and friends leave for armed service. In tragic contrast, Anne, Margot, and their parents go into hiding, are discovered, and are sent to concentration camps. Only Anne's father survives.
