Danny: this is so moving, I can't even see. And so timely. Thanks for helping us all remember.

The story about you and Anne Frank is amazing and fascinating. I took my son to visit the house in Amsterdam when he was 8 years old. Some months before, my mother had given him a gold chain with a small gold Magen-David (spelled as I would say it in Hebrew) for his birthday. He had refused to wear it. After our visit to where she had been hiding, we returned home and he said to me quietly, "Please give me the chain Granny gave me. I want to wear it."

When I lived in Israel on Yom Hashoah the sirens wailed for two minutes throughout the country. Everyone stopped everything they were doing and stood still in remembrance. Very powerful and unforgettable.

Thank you so much for reminding us about this.

Oh, I envy you. What I would give to be able to visit that historic place! I can see myself reacting the same way as you, trying to find as many "souvenirs" as possible. Do you have any remnants to share of the work that you did for the Anne Frank Center?

Omg! This story is so touching if i could i would go back in history and find out evrything!
