There is some repetition between this and the earlier piece but it does pad out some further information; more transcripts from her actual diary and I preferred the full narration as opposed to the on camera narration of Miep Gies. Both should be viewed as one piece but as there is a wealth of information on this young woman and her family then I can't help but think that there should have been more content on this sparse disc.
The additional documentary is more to my liking, I always prefer the faceless narration with scenes from WWII; probably a left over from watching The World at War all those many years ago. The documentary extra does double up at times but it does add something to this mix and even though this disc is a little sparse I still can't do anything other than recommend it, and recommend it to say the 10 - 14 age group, for them to try and see, try and experience in some minute way what Anne Frank felt during those fleeting years. Of course nothing could ever come close; but still Anne Frank has to be remembered and in a modern age where the written text is being replaced by video this Eureka presentation should grace anyone's collection.
