    This book is about a girl who is in hiding from the Nazis. I loved when Anna decides to help find Fannie. I also liked how Fannie is found and she was going to be taken to her real mom. I learned that people changed their names when they were in hiding. The Nazis took away so man...

    Sigh...and the Summer Curse continues. Even aside from the bland writing and unimpressive plot, it still would've been an okay story if Anna hadn't become so unlikeable by the end of it. The way she bullied that poor innocent boy, Stefan, was disgusting. And not much is said about i...

    The book Anna is still here by Ida Vos is a great book one of my favorites it?s a very sad book. This book talks about a girl named Anna who hid in an attic for 3 years in world war 2. She's is still trying to get over the trauma that world war 2 caused her to have. This book has 139...

    This is a story about the aftermath of the Holocaust. I have read many books, both written for children and for adults, about the Holocaust, but few about what the the survivors faced in trying to piece their lives back together. I appreciate this book for that reason. The story starts...

    The narrative was a little choppy, and perspective a little inconsistent from time to time, but then, wouldn't Anna's brain patterning be as such with what she went through, hiding upstairs, separated from her parents and all those she knows and loves? A good read, full of sadness, but...

    Very educational but not necessarily appropriate for the age level ...

    Most WW2 books I read take place during the war, but this one had the unique premise of taking place after the war, and the lingering effects it still has on everyone. War is not something that just goes away once it's over. ...

    Thirteen year old Anna is facing difficulties in the real world, because she was mentally abused from the war, and hiding from Nazis. She has to recover from all the hard times of being alone to being disrespected as a person. Her father, even has troubles of his own. Her mother and An...

    I read this as part of my final project I am doing for Children's Literature, the topic is the Holocaust as presented in Children's Lit. This book falls in the early chapter book area, no pictures, all text but no overly hard words. However, if you let the simple reading level stop you...

    The book Anna is still here by Ida Vos is a great book one of my favorites it?s a very sad book. This book talks about a girl named Anna who hid in an attic for 3 years in world war 2. She's is still trying to get over the trauma that world war 2 caused her to have. This book has 139...

    This book is about a girl who is in hiding from the Nazis. I loved when Anna decides to help find Fannie. I also liked how Fannie is found and she was going to be taken to her real mom. I learned that people changed their names when they were in hiding. The Nazis took away so man...

    Sigh...and the Summer Curse continues. Even aside from the bland writing and unimpressive plot, it still would've been an okay story if Anna hadn't become so unlikeable by the end of it. The way she bullied that poor innocent boy, Stefan, was disgusting. And not much is said about i...

    The book Anna is still here by Ida Vos is a great book one of my favorites it?s a very sad book. This book talks about a girl named Anna who hid in an attic for 3 years in world war 2. She's is still trying to get over the trauma that world war 2 caused her to have. This book has 139...

    This is a story about the aftermath of the Holocaust. I have read many books, both written for children and for adults, about the Holocaust, but few about what the the survivors faced in trying to piece their lives back together. I appreciate this book for that reason. The story starts...

    The narrative was a little choppy, and perspective a little inconsistent from time to time, but then, wouldn't Anna's brain patterning be as such with what she went through, hiding upstairs, separated from her parents and all those she knows and loves? A good read, full of sadness, but...

    Most WW2 books I read take place during the war, but this one had the unique premise of taking place after the war, and the lingering effects it still has on everyone. War is not something that just goes away once it's over. ...

    This slim novel engages readers with a variety of characters whose lives were severely altered by the Nazi persecution of the Jews. In this case, it is Netherlands, post-WWII, and the young girl Anna carries the story while probing and weaving the stories of others into her post-war tr...

    This is poignant novel that is an important story. It follows Anna Markus, a 13 year old Dutch Jewish girl. Holland has just been liberated from the Nazis. This novel explores the emotional and physical struggles of a young girl, along with her Jewish community, trying to regain a plac...

    I read this as part of my final project I am doing for Children's Literature, the topic is the Holocaust as presented in Children's Lit. This book falls in the early chapter book area, no pictures, all text but no overly hard words. However, if you let the simple reading level stop you...

    What I Learned: There are so many people out there with struggles of their own, some cant even help. They cant help that they were born jewish, or whatever makes them different from their haters. No matter what they overcome, there will always be after affects, thoughts, fears, and adj...

    OK, y'all know how I overdosed on Holocaust lit a looong time ago. But I still find poignant the rare stories that focus on how screwed up everyone was AFTER the war, like The Journey Back. These books go beyond the happily ever after of liberation to deal with survivers' trauma and th...

    I remember getting this book at a book fair when I was in the second grade and it is actually one I still own, over a decade later. I remember liking it because it was told from the perspective of a child and so was easier for me to understand the confusion and fear that Anna felt, whi...

    This story was about a young girl named anna that has just came out of an attic after having to go through the whole holocaust now she has to get her life back together and live the life of a normal girl ...

    I read this in sixth grade. For some reason, in middle school, we had to read about a million books about WWII and the Holocaust. I barely remember what happened in this book except that it was in present tense which I had never really read in a book before. ...

    The Holocaust is over, but Anna is still haunted by the past. This has a fifth grade reading level, but is a wonderful fictional story of a young girl three years after the Holocaust. The writing style is very odd. ...

    I read this with my daughter. It is a powerful story and we learned so much together. It was just enough information to introduce her to the subject of the Holocaust and she now would like to learn more. ...

    Cute fast read. ...

    Great story about a girl coping after she comes out from hiding from the Nazis. ...

    hard to get into, I think part of it was due to being a translation. ...

    It was really great! ...

    A little bit slow, didn't really grab my attention ...
