|Anne Frank, born in Germany, spent most
of her life in Amsterdam, where she hid
with her family from 1940-1942 during
Nazi persecution of Jews.
|The location of her “house” was
an unremarkable business
exterior. The interior had no light,
and hidden passageways. When
the family’s location was betrayed,
they were transferred to concentration
camps. She died of typhus in 1945.
|The Diary of Anne Frank was brought to
publication by her father, the only surviving
family member. Anne had always wanted
to be a journalist, and to bring her words
to the world. Her writing, in a child’s voice,
belied her young age.
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.
