Regarding The Diary of Anne Frank

With regards to The Diary of Anne Frank, there is something I would like to add.
 I hope some Moms and Dads will come home with the book one of these nights.

I know a lot of people think it's too harsh for kids because it touches on the Holocaust, but we cannot, and must not hide it from them. It is something that is real, it happened. It is not something of the distant past - it is a NOW thing -and Anne makes it immediate. We fall in love with her, and when she dies, we feel the loss. Anne Frank is one of ours, a friend of ours died in the camps.

We lost her.

They took her from us.

This is still happening today, in a lot of places, in a lot of ways.
Bright lights are going out, and keeping our children in the dark is not the way to fight.
