June 12, 1942

Anne Frank receives a diary for her thirteenth birthday. Those who do not understand Jewish persecution and do not believe that it still exists today, should read it.


Historian Dr. Jan Romein had this to say about it:


This apparently inconsequential diary by a child, this "de profundis" stammered out in a child's voice, embodies all the hideousness of fascism, more so than all the evidence of Nuremberg put together.
