Anne Frank

Anne Frank died 70 years ago this month in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. She became one of those names and faces that came to epitomise the horror of the Holocaust. I'm told you have to queue and not tarry when visiting the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. A place which I therefore duly shall not visit. Neither, for a totally different reason, shall I ever visit the Auschwitz Memorial in Poland. I could not cope with visiting a site where over a million people were murdered as an industrial proces for no valid reason, if such a justification ever existed. Below is an image of the Westerbork concentration camp (http://www.kampwesterbork.nl/en/index.html#/index), from where Anne left Holland for the final time in this life.

  1. I sure don't want to visit such a place, either. But I'm glad they have things like that to remind folks that it did really happen. Too many believe it all to be a tale.
