The latest addition to the ‘She Changed the World’ collection
Anne Frank (1929-1945) was a teenage writer, refugee, and Holocaust victim. You’ve read The Diary of Anne Frank, or seen a dramatization, or experienced other works derivative of what she captured in her journals of her time in hiding from the Nazis. I personally don’t feel that I can write more eloquently of her situation than what she herself wrote, so I direct you to re-read her words.
The Holocaust, for those who did not experience it, was too large of a situation to fully grasp and to humanize. Frank’s writings created that humanization for many and continues to do so today. It also stands as a dire warning against religious persecution of all kinds in all places and expands upon the constant importance of why the warning “Never again,” will always ring true.
