On this clear chill night we watched the chilling story of Anne Frank as told through her diary. There is a DVD of this five part BBC series depicting the two years Anne, her family and several others, spend hiding in an attic in Amsterdam during the WW2. All but Anne’s father perished after the hide-away was discovered, just before the end of the war. The father died in 1980.
How true Daddy’s words were when he said: all children must look after their own upbringing. Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.
Anne’s diary is an incredible witness to the spirit of youthfulness, rising up in the face of adversity.
