    1 thought on “Anna Is Still Here”

    1. 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 many things from the Jews during world war 2.

    2. Sighd 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 it. This isn't the first time in fiction (and I certainly see it a lot in real life) where the oppressed/marginalized person gets away with shitting on an innocent person that had zero and fuck all to do with what they went [...]

    3. 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 out in fear and despair and ends in renewal and hope.

    4. 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 traumatic stress. As a read aloud it would work well as mentor text for sustaining story elements NOT delivered in chronological order, for flashbacks, confused/unreliable narrators, and character development.

    5. 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 place in society after World War II.Anna has been in hiding from the Nazis for three years. Kiki, her imaginary friend, is her only companion. She has missed three years of school and is the tallest person in her class [...]

    6. 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 Anna talk about how her father doesn't like pictures of passed away people from the war. Anna sees this house that scares her, because she thinks the owner is a Nazi. Anna is wrong about this house, and throughout th [...]

    7. 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 from reading this I think you will be missing out on a powerful story.Anna lives in Holland. She was in hiding for 3 years during the Nazi occupation. She was alone, except for Kiki, her imaginary friend. She had [...]

    8. 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 adjustment troulbes.My Review: after the HolocaustAnna has struggles living the regular life because she hasnt lived one for a while. Kept in a room by herself, voice kept at a whisper She doesn't know how to talk lou [...]

    12. 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 the emotional realities of trying to rebuild broken families. This one is sensitive and right on, though the ending is pure fantasy.

    13. anna is still here is about a little girl named anna who came back from hiding from the holocaust. she was separated from her mom and dad. but her mom and dad found her and took her back. she goes to mrs neumanns house all the time. her parents dont like that. anna didnt care. mrs. neumann's daughter frannie and her husband got taken away from the holocaust. she awaited for her daughter for a long time.

    14. 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, which in my opinion Vos handled wonderfully. It's a very powerful book that I highly would recommend to anyone with children, or even just adults.

    15. 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

    16. 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.

    17. 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.

    18. 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.

    19. An amazing story, and I enjoyed Anna's point of view on the story. It is simple but contains such a good message and provides an insight on how hard life was during this time.

    20. Great story about the holocaust. Middle school reading level but there needs some prep about the holocaust before and careful guidance throughout the book. Very well done.

    21. a very heartwarming story :) i read it when i was still in highschool ! definitely a wonderful story :)
