Thirty Days of Thanks for Books – Day 13

Diary of Anne Frank“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn”

~ Anne Frank

For the month of November, I’d like to give thanks to some of my favorite books.  Key word being some because unfortunately there isn’t enough days to honor all the books I love.  So I’ve issued myself the challenge to do thirty days of thanks for books… and today I am thankful for…

Day 13 – The Diary of Anne Frank

This was such a moving novel and to see the effects of the Holocaust through the eyes of a child is just unforgettable.  And I’m so thankful Anne Frank had the courage to write her diary as well as for Otto Frank and Miep for preserving it.  Because without it (and the other books written by survivors), we may never remember the true tragedy of the Holocaust; something that must never be repeated.
