Anne Frank is one of the most famous Jewish victims of the Holocaust because of the diary she kept during her time in hiding before being captured by the Nazis. She was only 13 years old when she and her family went into hiding. In 1945, at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, Frank and her sister both came down with typhus and died within a day of each other. Anne Frank was just 15 years old at the time of her death, one of more than 1 million Jewish children who died in the Holocaust.

Kay Arthur ~ Christian author, teacher & speaker.
If I had my life to live over, I would have talked less and listened more; invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded. I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less about the dirt.I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.There would have been more "I love you's"; "I'm sorrys".But mostly, I would seize every minute-look at it and really see it,live it,and never give it back. ©Erma Bombeck
