There was a very moving documentary on Dutch TV around Christmas, about the reunion of Anne's high school class. Incredible. One girl (now a woman in her seventies) had even had contact with her in Bergen-Belsen, shorty before Anne died, and tried to throw food over the fence to her side of the camp. 21 children from that class died in one of the concentration camps. Most of them aged 13 or 14.
