ention the Holocaust and people frequently recall
Anne Frank, the Jewish teenager in the Netherlands
whose famous diary was published in 1947. She died
two years earlier in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in
Germany.
The Diary of a Young Girl, also depicted on stage and screen,
remains a powerful piece of writing. Describing the day-to-
day reality of hiding with others in the secret annex of her
father's company building in Amsterdam until their discovery
in August 1944, Anne stayed optimistic. With evil all around
her, she maintained an unshakable belief in the better nature of
people.
Several passages in the diary speak of a large horse chestnut
tree visible from one window. Cheering her through two years
of hiding, the tree was Anne's sole link to the natural world,
representing freedom and her hope for humanity.
