The deep in desire to read all the books of the world... but afraid I'd be left with only a few seconds per book, if reading is the only thing I do my entire life, skipping meals, sleep, and other biological calls... phew!

Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl

The Diary of a Young Girl - B.M. Mooyaart, Eleanor Roosevelt, Anne Frank Recently I watched a movie named 'The Pianist' (directed by Roman Polanski), which is also a true story about a Pianist at a radio station in the WW-II era. I was heart smitten to see the struggle and survival of the Jewish musician. Though this book had long been in my to-read list, but watching this movie gave me a push to start it immediately.

One can hardly imagine a teenage girl, stuffed with 7 other inmates in a small attic, in the middle of burglaries, police, hunger, misery, betrayal, death, to have so much stability in her mind as to write down a diary page each day. The hardest part of this true story is that it is absolutely true.

Nothing can best define a WW story, or a holocaust misery, than a journal keeping of a victim himself. I truly wish that some anti-Jews had read this book.
