  3. Thank you for sharing this post. Such beauty to come from unbelievable tragedy.

  4. Many of the ones responsible for her, and millions of other deaths, are still getting substantial state pensions, from a government dictating again what Europe should do…
    She looks so much like my late granny when she was young…
    My heart is aching… again…
    Thank you for sharing this.

  5. I agree with Paulette, thank God she had writing. I think I’ll go back to her and read her again. Keep her alive.

  6. Thank you for this quote by Anne Frank! πŸ™‚
