Featuring a spectacular range of educational books covering both World War One and Two, a stunning Life of Anne Frank portfolio and the inspirational Young, Fearless, Awesome, learning has been much more fun!

The red and white folder contains the most amazing documents including copies of Anne’s drawings, ration coupons, maps and more.
