Jacqueline van Maarsen (1929) was a professional bookbinder. She published My name is Anne, she said, Anne Frank in 2003, which the NRC called ‘a beautiful, modest retelling of a life’. The book became an international success, being translated into six languages. A year later, she wrote a book about the myth being formed around Anne Frank after the war, which was likewise translated widely.
