Part 2 of the Anne Frank story
The Jewish people, a fine spirited people, will not let these atrocities fade from human memory. We must never forger the holocaust, we must preserve the sanctity of human life and the health and welfare of all people’s of the world. Tikkun o’lam just as Jewish people declare, we must repair the world.
In the grand scheme of things human life is held worthless. There is no real regard for health or dignity.
This examiner was a young girl myself when she read the diary of Anne Frank, oh how she could identify with Anne and even though the examiner was a Christian teenager and Anne was a Jewish one, they were both innocent young girls who had done nothing wrong. They were innocent young girls who had hopes and dreams for the life ahead of them. The examiner had a chance to make her life; Anne Frank was never given that opportunity.
This examiner’s life was completely changed once she read that book. Incidentally it was required reading for her Montreal high school 9th grade English class and she was so glad that it was. Before that book she took he peaceful life in Montreal for granted. Afterward she began to see the world outside of her own city and country was not the safe haven she had always thought it was.
