About the Author

Hannah Pick-Goslar--referred to as Lies Goosens in Anne Frank's diary--was born in Berlin in 1928. In June 1943, Hannah and her family were arrested in Amsterdam and sent to Westerbork transit camp, then to Bergen-Belsen. Hannah survived there fourteen months, until the camp was liberated in 1945. She emigrated to British Mandate Palestine in 1947, shortly before it became Israel, and trained as a nurse. She passed away in 2022 at the age of ninety-three.


"An extraordinary story of love, loss, and the power of friendship in the darkest time. This book, like its author, is an essential companion to Anne Frank's life."--Jack Fairweather, Costa Prize-winning author of The Volunteer
"A profoundly moving immensely valuable contribution not just to our knowledge of Anne Frank, but to the memory of the Holocaust itself."--Dave Rich, author of Everyday Hate
"One of the most moving, profound, and important books I've ever read."--Rangan Chatterjee, host of the podcast Feel Better, Live More
"A heartbreaking memoir of friendship, loss and survival. By telling her life story, Hannah Goslar pays tribute to her best friend Anne Frank and the millions of others who did not survive the Holocaust. But she also shows us how to preserve our humanity in the face of evil." --Ronald Leopold, executive director of the Anne Frank House
"Every bit as remarkable as the Anne Frank story. Hannah has left us a jewel." --Jon Sopel
"Hannah's story finally completes what Anne could not. It is both heartbreaking and life-affirming, and we need its truth now more than ever."--Edith Eger, author of The Choice
"Hannah Pick-Goslar details the joys of their friendship and harrowing details of life under Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime...A devastating account of the Holocaust."--Olivia B. Waxman, TIME
"A powerful book."--Tony Dokoupil, CBS Mornings
"Painful history but a good choice for readers interested in Anne Frank or Holocaust-era memoirs."--Kirkus Reviews
"Pick-Goslar certainly has a story, and she tells it here with great clarity and conviction. In many ways her experience parallels Anne Frank's."--Francine Prose, The Washington Post
