My Mother was also born in 1929 in Holland but she married an English soldier then they were liberated. I have just sadly lost her at 86 but can give thanks for her life when I consider all of those poor people who were her countrymen and women who didn't survive. Her life also reads like a novel but for very different reasons. I mourn all of those people who lost their lives and thank all those who liberated my family, including my Dad who is still fit and well at 95. What a story I could also tell about their war time experiences.

Anne, you have given me courage, faith and hope. Your way of handling very very difficult situations have inspired me to overcome mine's.

I wouldn't wish her sufferings on my worst enemy. There are Somethings we must all learn about. Anne Frank is one of them.

The first time that I read Anne Frank, the Diary of a Young Girl, I was in seventh grade. My teacher incorporated the diary, sections of the drama, and very touching discussions and activities during the unit. I remember feeling upset, confused, and sad after reading the diary. I had many conversations with my grandmother about the impact that the book left on me and how many life lessons I learned from reading that book. I still treasure the book as well as the conversations that were sparked from Anne's story that I had with my grandmother. Now, I'm a middle school reading teacher and I read the graphic novel version of Anne Frank with eighth graders and also incorporated scenes from the drama based on Anne Frank's life. The resilience of Otto Frank is inspiring and the optimism of Anne's spirit and her words is uplifting even in the darkest of days. Your words live on in a brave space.

Anne Frank was quite possibly one of the first true friends I made. Reading her journal felt as if she was sitting beside me with her gentle smile and telling me, through her words, that none of us were alone. I could not relate or connect to many of the things she said - to her struggles, to her thoughts - yet I could, in a way, understand all of it. Hearing her "voice" was, in my opinion, one of the most real things I have ever known. Thank you Anne Frank.

So many were killed in the Holocaust that the scale almost becomes impossible to comprehend, seeing the Anne Frank house reminded me that behind each of the atrocities performed there were real people, some nice some not, with the same thoughts and hopes as all of us. As I see the ongoing atrocities carried out still all over the world we do not seem to have learned anything, but I am now thinking there is person involved not just another statistic from the visit to the Anne Frank house
