Today, on what would have been Anne Frank's 85th birthday, I invite you to join me in remembering all the children who suffered during the Holocaust. They are truly the most innocent victims.

When I was a child I was taken to a Holocaust museum. I will never forget that day. The scratch marks on the walls of the gas chambers are haunting images.

Wars breed ignorance. I couldn't begin to imagine these children's horrors.

Today, let us pray for the illegal immigrants....little children without father or mother.

Yet they hope.

I do sweet Anne, I do. I have often wondered what you might have become had the horror not overtaken you. History books tell the facts, but the best books I've ever read on WWII and the years leading up to it are Herman Wouk's masterpieces, The Winds of War and War and Remembrance. He captures the mood, the foreboding and the horror in absolutely riveting, meticulously researched fiction, so strong that you feel you are there with them. He tells the stories through two families, one American, one Jewish. They intertwine, but that is not the wonder of these books as he captures the politics of war, the strategy of it, the insanity of Hitler and the horror of the Holocaust, so real you can almost smell the gas. And what have we learned since then? Boko Haram is what. Jihad and terrorism is what. We are still as a species as insane and bloodthirsty as ever in our history, more so in some parts of the world. I don't think we are worth saving, maybe the coming climatological holocaust is what homo sapiens deserves for it certainly has not shown itself capable of learning the truth which is love is the answer to every question. We still think bloodshed is. And we are savages, even now, and getting worse, not better. I think the planet will be well rid of us and hope the next sentient species to arise comes with love in its heart, not hate. That might be a civilization, we will never be.

Anne Frank is one of my heroes & I love her so much! She can never ever be forgotten by the world. Read her diary when I was about 14 or 15 yrs & I think that's the perfect age to read it.

This is the horror that is being denied in so many places, even America. It happened to the Jews, it also happened to the Lithuanians. We need to NEVER FORGET about the horrors and atrocities that were perpetrated on these people and give thanks and blessings to those who survived.

Nancy, a brilliant post, thank you so much. Yes, Anne's story still moves people who read or hear it. Story is how we learn history (and many other things.) If history is not told as story, it gets lost. Gene, thanks for your recommendation of Wouk. Indeed, the man could write, and could he ever tell stories! Wow!

I was about 14 when I read Anne's diary. I didn't know she died in Bergen Belsen and when I reached the last page, I cried in shock and surprise. I'm very glad the Germans are admitting their crimes and are certainly educating their children about the Holocaust.
