Documentary – The Short Life of Anne Frank

13 Mar

While it is not Sunday yet, I found this via YouTube and felt compelled to share it with my readers.  I read Anne Frank’s diary years ago and when I discovered the story behind it, it moved me beyond anything words can express.  Hers is a powerful tale even 70 years after her death at the age of fifteen.  No one knows for sure how she died or where she was buried, but what is certain is that the poor unfortunate girl died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany just weeks before it was liberated by British troops.  Of the eight people who were in hiding with Anne, the only survivor was her father, Otto Frank, who was responsible for publishing his daughter’s diary shortly after the end of World War II.  He himself died of lung cancer in 1980, but thanks to him, Anne’s story lives on, and so do the stories of the 11 million victims who died in the Holocaust.  This year on 15 April is the anniversary of the day Bergen-Belsen was liberated in 1945 and its survivors set free.
