THE ANNE FRANK TRAIL
If you have read the Diary of Anne Frank – or even a small section of it – and have been captivated by a young girl’s resilient spirit, this is for you. It is not the trail of Nazi inhumanity towards the Jewish nation – although you will have no difficulty finding plenty of evidence about this. It is the story of a young girl’s indomitable spirit that made her a victor and not a victim. Yes, the Nazis were cruel, but the spirit of this young girl lives on in victorious testimony that, ultimately, right defeats cruelty and good outstrips evil.
Start the trail at the ‘Achterhuis” in Amsterdam – the attic rooms, where Anne and her family hid from the Nazis for two years. This is where Anne wrote her world renowned diary and the stories that make up her posthumously published book ‘Tales from the Secret Annexe”.
From there, move on to the beautiful city of Krakow to visit Auschwitz, where the Nazis sent her with the mother and sister, Margot. Even here, where unspeakable barbarity was perpetrated by the Nazis, Anne did not succumb. Weak but still resilient, she was transferred to Bergen-Belsen, where the 1945 typhus epidemic did what the Nazis couldn’t do and ended her short life.
This is a victory trail of note. Don’t miss it.
