    The Diary of Anne Frank is read and loved by children throughout the world. Yet few of those readers know what life was really like for the young Jewish girl before and after she wrote her famous diary.

    Written in a lively yet sympathetic style, Anne Frank’s Story follows Anne Frank from her birth in Germany and her happy childhood in Amsterdam through the years she and her family spent in hiding from the Nazis, to her imprisonment and eventual death in the concentration camps.

    In 1955, former nightclub manageress Ruth Ellis shot dead her lover, David Blakely. Following a trial that lasted less than two days, she was found guilty and sentenced to death. She became the last woman to be hanged in Britain, and her execution is the most notorious of hangman Albert Pierrepoint's 'duties'. Despite Ruth's infamy, the story of her life has never been fully told. Often wilfully misinterpreted, the reality behind the headlines was buried by an avalanche of hearsay.

    'Infamous, I have become disowned, but I am one of your own' - Myra Hindley, from her unpublished autobiography. On 15 November 2002, Myra Hindley, Britain's most notorious murderess, died in prison, one of the rare women whose crimes were deemed so indefensible that 'life' really did mean 'life'. But who was the woman behind the headlines? How could a seemingly normal girl grow up to commit such terrible acts? Her defenders claim she fell under Ian Brady's spell, but is this the truth?
