Would love to have this movie on VHS
7 February 2001 | by moonbeam65See all my reviews

I saw this movie years ago, and remember that it was wonderful. I just wish that it was available in VHS. I also have the book and it is very informative. It filled in a lot of blanks for me. After I read the diary, I wondered how it all came about, how

Anne and her family ended up in hiding. With Meip's book you get a feel for what was going on out side.
