I would be interested, too, if it were based on some new facts that came to light. But I'm not interested in reading somebody's imagined version of what might have happened.
As to when enough time has passed, that's an interesting question and I'm sure the answer is different for everyone. Anne and her sister were approximately my mother's age (Margot was a year older and Anne was two years younger), and my mother is still living. So for me, that's too recent.
Incidentally, this discussion revived my interest in her diary. There is a version available on Amazon that presents three versions side-by-side: Anne's original, un-edited version (including pages that only came to light after her father's death); the version she herself revised with hopes of having it published after the war; and the further-revised version that her father had published in the 1950s. It's not cheap but it's very tempting.....
