I made a poster of the movie : The Diary Of Anne Frank. I hope that it will please you.

P.S : The date is invented

Just published today, here's an account of how a translation of Anne's diary affects victims of genocide today. A bittersweet but uplifting story.

Today would have been Anne Frank's 79th birthday! In a way its quite sad to think that if she was alive today, she would have been an old lady by now - but at least she still lives on as a young girl through her diary and through the photos we have of her!
Its a pitty the Anne Frank Huis isn't doing anything to commemorate her birthday. I hope they will next year when it is 80 years since she was born.

There are a lot of biographies about Anne and the Secret Annexe. At the moment I'm reading "Ich sehne mich so" (English title: "Anne Frank - A hidden life") by the German translator of the diary, Mirjiam Pressler. It's a good book but I think there are better biographies and books about Anne out there.

So: Have you read some biographies/books about Anne? Which ones did you read? Which ones do you recommend?

I first heard about Anne Frank when I was rather young. I cannot remember in full detail as to how she was mentioned to me or around me, but I know that I had made some childish remark and my mother and grandparent's gave me a stern talking to. In the end they told me that I should be happy for everything I have in this day and time and that people such as 'Anne Frank, endured worse things than I could begin to imagine and should be thankful for what I have.'
But then again at the age of 6, what child really pays attention to random people in history when your parents mention them. I will be honest, at that ages I couldn't have cared less and went about my business.

I'm sure some of you will remember the name of one of Anne's best friends: Lies Goslar. As of today, there's an audio download for sale about Lies' father, Hans Goslar. He was a Jew who held a government position in the Weimar Republic, and a voice of warning and Jewish advocacy. The lecture is available here, and it comes as part of a series called "Three Among the Six Million." The other two biographies are equally fascinating, especially the last, which is a story that mixes Hasidism with political intrigue, so if you're interested in the entire series, it's here.
