Anne Frank Sept 13


The moving ANNE FRANK Let Me Be Myself touring exhibition starts today in Fremantle at the Woolstores Shopping Centre and should not be missed.

Anne Frank’s story is a very sad one about a young Jewish girl who had to hide with her family in a secret annex of a house in Amsterdam during Hitler’s nazi regime and German occupation of the Netherlands during Worldwar II.

While they were hiding Anne wrote a beautiful diary, but sadly after two years she and her family were discovered and deported to concentration camps. From the eight people only father Otto Frank survived.

Intolerance to other people’s religion, culture and race should never be accepted.

The exhibition is on till October 31 and open from 10 am to 5 pm.

As someone who lived in Europe for the first 33 years of my life and who heard the very many awful stories about Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany I am outraged to see that the Australian Wicked Vans company is hiring out a 4×4 with a portrait of Hitler painted on it.

According to a Facebook post this car drives throughout Australia with tourists in it and somehow pokes fun at this disgraceful episode in history. That is not acceptable and this four wheel drive needs to be ordederd off the road by our authorities. It is insensitive to the plight of the thousands of Jewish people who suffered and died in concentration camps and to all those countries who had to suffer the brutality of German occupation during World War II. The Netherlands was one of those and my parents had to endure German occupancy.

It is wrong to think there is anything funny about Adolf Hitler, Nazi Germany or any war. This is extremely bad taste Wicked!
