Inicialmente, o renomado cineasta holandês Willy Lindwer filmou o documentário "Os sete últimos meses de Anne Frank" e, depois disso, resolveu transformá-lo em livro. Para tanto, ele entrevistou mulheres que conheceram Anne Frank.
O livro é composto pelos depoimentos de seis dessas mulheres - algumas que a conheceram antes de sua deportação para o campo nazista, e todas elas durante os últimos momentos em Bergen-Belsen.
As histórias que estas mulheres têm para contar são semelhantes: o tratamento no campo, a forma como conheceram as irmãs Frank e a maneira como todas foram inexplicavelmente tocadas por sua vida. O fato de terem sobrevivido ao campo de extermínio é um milagre em si mesmo. Uma das sobreviventes, inclusive, teve a difícil missão de confirmar a Otto Frank as mortes de suas filhas, Anne e Margot.
Os sete últimos meses de Anne Frank é o triste e verdadeiro relato de uma crueldade inimaginável e do milagre ocorrido para os que sobreviveram poderem contá-lo com suas próprias palavras.
A laugh-out-loud new novel that fans of The Devil Wears Prada, Bridget Jones and Sophie Kinsella will love!

Eastern Europe, 1944: Three women believe they are pregnant, but are torn from their husbands before they can be certain. Rachel is sent to Auschwitz, unaware that her husband has been shot. Priska and her husband travel there together, but are immediately separated. Also at Auschwitz, Anka hopes in vain to be reunited with her husband. With the rest of their families gassed, these young wives are determined to hold on to all they have left—their lives, and those of their unborn babies. Having concealed their condition from infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, they are forced to work and almost starved to death, living in daily fear of their pregnancies being detected by the SS.
In April 1945, as the Allies close in, Priska gives birth. She and her baby, along with Anka, Rachel, and the remaining inmates, are sent to Mauthausen concentration camp on a hellish seventeen-day train journey. Rachel gives birth on the train, and Anka at the camp gates. All believe they will die, but then a miracle occurs. The gas chamber runs out of Zyklon-B, and as the Allied troops near, the SS flee. Against all odds, the three mothers and their newborns survive their treacherous journey to freedom.
On the seventieth anniversary of Mauthausen’s liberation from the Nazis by American soldiers, renowned biographer Wendy Holden recounts this extraordinary story of three children united by their mothers’ unbelievable—yet ultimately successful—fight for survival.
