JNS.org The 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, along with the end of World War II, is being commemorated Wednesday on the same day that Israel marks Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). To commemorate the famous teenage diarist Anne Frank, who died in Bergen-Belsen, the Anne Frank Trust UK launched a social media campaign encouraging people (including celebrities) to record themselves reading excerpts from Frank’s diary and to publish the videos online with the hashtag #notsilent.

“We could have a minute’s silence to mark Anne Frank’s death, but it wasn’t appropriate,” said Gillian Walnes, co-founder and executive director of the Anne Frank Trust, Reuters reported.

  • It is so important that we maintain the close link to Anne Frank that we have! As a Murdered Jew of The Holocaust, she shines a light on the darkness that is Racial intolerance. We need every School to adopt Anne, have her words read, understood and appreciated. I applaud the NOT SILENT attempt, as we should all ensure We Remember Anne and the 6,000,000 Murdered Jews of Europe!
