  • - en cold case efterforskning
    af Rosemary Sullivan
    227,95 kr.

    Forskere har måske løst et af Anden Verdenskrigs store mysterier. Historiker og journalist Rosemary Sullivan følger et hold af efterforskere, ledet af en besat, pensioneret FBI-agent ved navn Vincent Pankoke, da de genoptager en af verdens mest skammeligt uopklarede sager: Hvem afslørede Anne Frank og hendes familie i Amsterdam i 1944? Og hvorfor? Mere end 30 millioner mennesker har læst historien om Anne Frank, den 13-årige pige, der skjulte sig sammen med sin familie i Amsterdam under 2. verdenskrig, blot for at blive opdaget af nazisterne og sendt i døden i en koncentrationslejr. Trods den megen journalistik og de bøger, teaterstykker og romaner, der er viet til emnet, så er der aldrig nogen, der endegyldigt har forklaret, hvordan familien Frank og fire andre personer formåede at leve i skjul uden at blive opdaget i over to år – eller hvem eller hvad der endeligt førte nazisterne til deres dør. Et hold efterforskere har med usvigelig omhu stirret ned i titusindvis siders dokumentation – hvoraf nogle aldrig tidligere har været fremvist – og interviewet snesevis af efterkommere fra folk, der – på den ene eller anden måde – var i forbindelse med familien Frank. Ved hjælp af nyudviklet DNA-teknologi og efterforskningsteknikker, der er udviklet af FBI, har teamet for uopklarede sager genskabt de dage og uger, der gik forud for arrestationen af familien Frank – og konklusionen er chokerende. Trods al den analyse, bogen indeholder, så er dens store bedrift, at den tager læseren med på en rejse tilbage til krigstidens Amsterdam, hvor vi for første gang får en forståelse af, hvordan det var at leve et sted, der var besat; et sted hvor du – uanset hvor rig, veluddannet eller forsigtig, du var – aldrig kunne vide, hvem du kunne stole på.

    A New York Times BestsellerLess a mystery unsolved than a secret well kept...Using new technology, recently discovered documents and sophisticated investigative techniques, an international team?led by an obsessed retired FBI agent?has finally solved the mystery that has haunted generations since World War II: Who betrayed Anne Frank and her family? And why?Over thirty million people have read The Diary of a Young Girl, the journal teen-aged Anne Frank kept while living in an attic with her family and four other people in Amsterdam during World War II, until the Nazis arrested them and sent them to a concentration camp. But despite the many works?journalism, books, plays and novels?devoted to Anne's story, none has ever conclusively explained how these eight people managed to live in hiding undetected for over two years?and who or what finally brought the Nazis to their door.With painstaking care, retired FBI agent Vincent Pankoke and a team of indefatigable investigators pored over tens of thousands of pages of documents?some never before seen?and interviewed scores of descendants of people familiar with the Franks. Utilizing methods developed by the FBI, the Cold Case Team painstakingly pieced together the months leading to the infamous arrest?and came to a shocking conclusion. The Betrayal of Anne Frank: A Cold Case Investigation is the riveting story of their mission. Rosemary Sullivan introduces us to the investigators, explains the behavior of both the captives and their captors and profiles a group of suspects. All the while, she vividly brings to life wartime Amsterdam: a place where no matter how wealthy, educated, or careful you were, you never knew whom you could trust.

    "As a poet and writer, [Rosemary Sullivan] knows that life is lived not as theory but as practice, that . . . you can understand nothing about a place without listening to individual people and their stories." -- Margaret Atwood Incomparable writer, activist, and world traveller Rosemary Sullivan has at long last written a book about herself, about her life quest to "meet the world, to celebrate its richness, to face its darkness." And what a fascinating book it is! Comprised of 21 essays spanning 5 decades and multiple continents, Where the World Was offers a vivid portrait of a writer who is instinctively drawn to other cultures and places. Whether writing about a solo vacation inside the Iron Curtain, meeting the reclusive writer Elizabeth Smart in a dilapidated cottage in the English countryside, reflecting on how Chilean society responded to Pinochet's coup, or tracking down the people who knew Svetlana Alliluyeva for Stalin's Daughter, Sullivan delivers a master class in cultural studies, human rights advocacy, and empathy for the human condition.

    "Rosemary Sullivan goes beyond the confines of Air-Bel to tell a fuller story of France during the tense years from 1933 to 1941. . . . A moving tale of great sacrifice in tumultuous times." -- Publishers Weekly Paris 1940. Andre Breton, Max Ernst, Marc Chagall, Consuelo de Saint-Exupery, and scores of other cultural elite denounced as enemies of the conquering Third Reich, live in daily fear of arrest, deportation, and death. Their only salvation is the Villa Air-Bel, a chateau outside Marseille where a group of young people, financed by a private American relief organization, will go to extraordinary lengths to keep them alive. In Villa Air-Bel, Rosemary Sullivan sheds light on this suspenseful, dramatic, and intriguing story, introducing the brave men and women who use every means possible to stave off the Nazis and the Vichy officials, and goes inside the chateau's walls to uncover the private worlds and the web of relationships its remarkable inhabitants developed.
