I can wholeheartedly recommend Nanette's book as an accompaniment to the diary for use in the Holocaust curriculum. Nanette's experiences at Bergen-Belsen mirror what Anne will also have experienced in a way that is both central to Holocaust Education and the life of Anne Frank. - Ronald Leopold, Executive Director of the Anne Frank House, Amsterdam
Her book can serve as a valuable, enlightening and educational sequel to the diary of Anne Frank who did not have the chance to continue writing after her arrest and deportation. It is also a powerful warning to all of us in a carelessly history-forgotten time. - Melissa Müller, author of Anne Frank. The Biography
A touching tour de force of a holocaust memoir. This story is told in a very personal way which greatly helped forge a relationship of both sympathy and utmost respect for Nanette. By the end of the book, one can derive multiple messages from her memoir, the one that stuck to me is how she had faced such arduous hardships, yet still found the strength to make the most of her life, ultimately finding motivations to continue moving forward. - K. Rai
Raw! Heartbreaking! Powerful! Emotional! - Marcia
A powerful book that everyone must read. The atrocities that were committed during the holocaust are beyond comprehension. Nannette survived and went on to have a beautiful family. God bless you Mrs. Konig and thank you for putting pen to paper and reliving the horror, so that future generations will know the true story. - Amy Brooks
Besides the recollection of the horrific conditions that Holocaust survivors endured, Konig relates the psychological effects. As much as the lack of food and hygiene she explains how it feels to lose your dignity, freedom, and lack of identity. She also reminds the reader of the conditions that make such things possible. - Debbie Shoulders
This author overcame unimaginable events, and has demonstrated the true definition of resilience. She selflessly tells her story in such an intense and detailed way, and all the way through it remains so reader-friendly and organized. I was able to visualize the majority of the events, people, and environments she speaks about, and I feel that if her goal was to educate others on the realities of the Holocaust, in addition to perpetuating the very impactful 'never forget' mantra, significant in keeping alive the memories of the millions affected by the Holocaust, then she was fully successful.- Ganessa Press
What was so disturbing about this book is that it is a memory of a very ordinary family. The dad worked at a bank, the kids went to school and they all led a very normal life....Until the disruption and horror brought to Holland by the Third Reich. Even then, the family thought that they would be safe until they were sent to a temporary camp where they started having their dignity gradually stripped away. Minimal food, poor hygiene and constant orders from the SS soldiers. The temporary camp was bad enough but when the family was moved to Bergen-Belsen, they lost all vestiges of their earlier life. Once they were there, it was a daily struggle to stay alive. The author presented the horror of the camp in such a way that it was even more horrific. I am so glad that the book continued to the author's years after her time in Bergen-Belsen and we were truly able to see what a strong determined woman she is. Thank you, Nanette, for sharing your story and continuing to share it with future generations so that this never happens again. - Susan Robert of A Girls who Reads--This text refers to the paperback edition.

How can other humans inflict these unimaginable crimes to fellow humans and their strength to survive
Least we forget
Brilliantly written and from the heart
Let's hope that by reading these types of books we can make the world a very different place with love leading the way
All the same, it is a powerful story, made real by her account of knowing Anne Frank.
The story was very well out though I only give it 4 starts due to the clippings after each chapter (which I think has been put in to spread the story out).
It got very annoying after a few pages.
No words do justice to what was inflicted onto all the people in camps.
