I am professional photo collector and recently
purchased this Image.
born May 9 th 1924 in Vienna Austria.
She is shown here on her first day of school in 1931
On Sept 14 th 1942 she was deported to Maly Trostinec
She was one of 15,000 jews, between May and October of 1942,
That were sytematically murdered upon their arrival's
sorry for the sad story...but it had to be said
so she could be remembered properly

The greatest writer ever...of course !
Her struggle to flee the Nazis gave a face to all those others
that suffered during that time.
As None other than Nelson Mandela explained... he and his
fellow prisoners on Robben Island often read her diary, and
recieved spiritual nourishment from it.
Miep Gies who helped Anne and her family to hide from
nazis, and who is still living at age of 99, said of Anne that she
lived completely "in the moment"..and that she bristled with Life !
In a moment of sadness..Anne said
" I wander from room to room, feeling like a songbird whose wings
have been ripped off--Hurling itself the bars in its darked cage"
At first publishers of Anne's Diary did not expect it to be nearly
as popular as it would become..but when a 'Very Impressed'
Eleanor Roosevelt wrote an introduction for doubledays 1952
Edition...it took off !

Have you ever thought of how great it would be to invent a Time Machine ?
Real Sci-Fi ...Jules Verne type of stuff huh ?
Well its already been done....
A Photograph is the perfect time machine...
Elusive time is captured and Tamed in a simple photograph.
We often take these little miracles for granted, but we shouldnt.
