Anne Frank House

Early on a dreary morning in Amsterdam, this was the line of people waiting to enter Anne Frank House, now a museum with a modern facade. Linda & I were deeply moved as we walked, slowly and quietly, along the self-guided tour through the hiding places of the inhabitants of the Secret Annexe–the landing with movable bookcase, the bedrooms, bathroom, communal living room. The atmosphere was hushed, reverential as people stopped to view photographs, films, archival objects, and read quotations from Anne Frank’s diary: “It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
