For the Sake of the Children
Name: For the Sake of the Children
Product Code: BJA2
Description:Item Number: BJA2 
Product Detail:As the situation worsened for Jews in Amsterdam under Nazi occupation, Otto Frank, Anne frank's father, made arrangements to take his family into hiding. In 2007, scholars discovered a cache of letters between Otto and his lifelong friend Nathan Straus Jr., an influential American journalist and the son of a founder of Macy's. We have long known of the relationship between these two men. The letters revealed for the first time, however, that Otto Frank had tried desperately to get his family out of war torn Holland in 1941, fifteen months before they went into hiding in the now famous attic at Prinsengracht 263, Amsterdam. The story of the letters was recently published in a book for the first time by Joan Adler, Executive Director of the Straus Historical Society. For the Sake of the Children enriches our understanding of the Frank family and gives us greater insight into this tragic era.
