I am so touched by her story and after visiting the Anne Frank House, I value her short life even more.

I was just about the same age as Anne Frank when we read her book in Sunday school. I put myself in her shoes. She was much stronger then I ever would have been. Now, as I just turned 60 I am re reading her book. It is inspiring me to live life to its fullest and to deal with long lost feelings that devastated me as I read her book, learned about the effects of hatred on people and my own experiences of antisemitism growing up. Anne Frank reaches out of the book to help me forgive and live.

Anne Frank is a role model to me, I have always been interested in her story. Not only have I read her book multiple times but I have also visited the museum. I have multiple relatives that are from the area where her house is located. I believe that she was such strong person and I also believe that the young kids of today should experience her story. Such a wonderful woman, who will always have a special place in my heart!
