A glimpse of Anne Frank, from a window
Posted on 10/03/2009 3:56:27 PM PDT by chessplayer
The Anne Frank House has uploaded a video that provides a fleeting glimpse of Anne Frank on July 22, 1941, roughly a year before she went into hiding with her family. The video shows Anne leaning out of the second-floor window of her Amsterdam home to see her neighbor, who is getting married.
The National Post reports that the video has become something of an internet sensation since it was uploaded this past Wednesday. "Nine seconds into the film," the paper adds, "a 13-year-old Anne is seen leaning out of a second-floor window, smiling and looking down at the street to see the bride and groom." How utterly, utterly sad.

Millions of sad stories!!!
'American training will be utilized to kill Jews'
NORTHERN WEST BANK security forces who recently received training
at U.S.-run bases as part of a stated effort to reform the PA's militias
All the trainings we received from Dayton and company will not affect our loyalty to
our people and the resistance," said the former Brigades leader.
The others present concurred.
The gunman was referring to Keith Dayton, the U.S. security coordinator to the
Palestinian territories who has been overseeing the training of Palestinian militias.
Since the late 1990s, the U.S. has run training bases for PA militias. The U.S. also has
provided hundreds of millions of dollars in financial aid and weapons to build up the PA militias.
What we received from Dayton, we will use when the day comes for a confrontation."
"I do not think that the operations of the Palestinian resistance would have been so
successful and would have killed more than 1,000 Israelis since 2000 and defeated the
Israelis in Gaza without these [American] trainings," said Yousuf.
Yousuf received U.S. training in Jericho in 1999 as a member of the Preventative
Security Services. He is a Brigades chief in Ramallah, where he is accused of
participating in anti-Israel terrorism, including recent shootings, attacks against Israeli
forces operating in the city and a shooting attack in northern Samaria in December 2000
that killed Benyamin Kahane, leader of the ultranationalist Kahane Chai organization.
Yousuf said his American training sessions were instrumental in killing Jews:
"All the methods and techniques that we studied in these trainings, we applied them against the Israelis," he said.
"We sniped at Israeli settlers and soldiers. We broke into settlements and Israeli army
bases and posts. We collected information on the movements of soldiers and settlers. We
collected information about the best timing to infiltrate our bombers inside Israel. We
used weapons and we produced explosives, and of course the trainings we received from
the Americans and the Europeans were a great help to the resistance."
"I myself received American trainings in Jericho. Together with my Preventative
comrades, I received trainings in intelligence methods and military trainings," he said. "In
the intelligence part, we learned collection of information regarding suspected persons,
how to follow suspected guys, how to infiltrate organizations and penetrate cells of
groups that we were working on and how to prevent attacks and to steal in places.
"On the military level, we received trainings on the use of weapons, all kind of weapons
and explosives," Yousuf said. "We received sniping trainings, work of special units
especially as part of what they call the fight against terror. We learned how to put siege,
how to break into places where our enemies closed themselves in, how to oppress protest
movements, demonstrations and other activities of opposition.
"I'm just telling you the truth," he said. "We applied against Israel all that we learned
from the Americans."

I was in the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam,,, You can actually feel the sadness . Her drawings were still on the wall. There was an amazing “heavy” sadness in the place.

When I was about 13, and living in Germany, my Dad took us to Amsterdam to visit Ann Frank’s house. He also took us to Dachau prison camp. Those events will stay with me forever.

No, I’ve seen it before too, sometime in the past year.

How chilling, one of my favorite books.
He also took us to Dachau prison camp. Those events will stay with me forever.
A year and a half ago business took me to Munich. Rather than take a nap upon arrival to help get on schedule, I toured instead (and paid for it later).
Dachau was very sobering.
