Anne Frank's 75th Birthday

This last Saturday, 12 June 2004, marks what would have been Anne Frank's 75th birthday. Anne was one of the 1.5 million Jewish children murdered during the Shoah (aka The Holocaust) which claimed the lives of an estimated 11 million people (6 million Jews, 5 million gentiles).
We owe it to Anne and all the victims of the Shoah (as well as the victims of other genocides) to never forget what depth humanity can sink to & do whatever is necessary to prevent anything like this from happening again. Below are some links to on-line information about Anne Frank and the Shoah.

Never Forget.
Never Again.
