    Judith Jones may not have been a household name, but without her, some of the world's most famous books may never have made it to many library and kitchen shelves. The editor died Wednesday at her home in Vermont, according to a statement from the publisher Knopf. She was 93. Her stepdaughter said the cause was complications from Alzheimer's disease. Jones worked at Knopf for more than five decades. She retired in 2011 as senior editor and vice president. It was 1950 when Jones at age 27 was working in Paris as an editorial assistant at Doubleday Publishing. She stumbled...

    After President Donald Trump spent a long weekend at Mar-a-lago, Sean Spicer held his first White House press briefing of the week on Tuesday. There, he faced a slew of questioning about a string of nationwide anti-Semitic crimes, including the touting of the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to suggest Trump’s led to a rise in Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. CBS White House correspondent Margaret Brennan began her questioning by explaining that she wanted “to give you a chance to respond to something cause I think the President's remarks and your clarification about where he stands on anti-Semitism is clear.”Brennan...

    The answer to the question "Who betrayed Anne Frank" may be "Nobody," according to to new research. A study released by the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam Friday says that the hiding place of the Jewish teenager and her family may instead have been found by chance when Nazi security forces raided the building investigating forced ration cards or illegal employment, the BBC reports.

    The stepsister of perhaps the world's most famous Holocaust victim Anne Frank has asserted that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is "acting like another Hitler." In an op-ed published in Newsweek on Wednesday to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Eva Schloss denounced Trump's rhetoric against Syrian refugees. "If Donald Trump become the next president of the US, it would be a complete disaster," she slams. "I think he is acting like another Hitler by inciting racism." The 86-year-old Schloss, an Auschwitz survivor, was a childhood friend of Anne's in Amsterdam before the Frank family went into hiding. After the war,...

    CNN ^ | 01/28/2016 | By Gregory Krieg,
    In an essay to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Anne Frank's stepsister accused Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump of "acting like another Hitler." Eva Schloss, now 86, was a friend of Frank's in Amsterdam after their families fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Her mother, Fritzi, would marry Otto Frank, Anne's father, after World War II. "If Donald Trump become(s) the next president of the U.S. it would be a complete disaster," she told Newsweek on Wednesday. "I think he is acting like another Hitler by inciting racism." The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment....

    Miep Gies, the last survivor among Anne Frank’s protectors and the woman who preserved the diary that endures as a testament to the human spirit in the face of unfathomable evil, died Monday night, the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam said. She was 100. The BBC said Mrs. Gies suffered a fall late last month and died at a nursing home. “I am not a hero,” Mrs. Gies wrote in her memoir, “Anne Frank Remembered,” published in 1987. “I stand at the end of the long, long line of good Dutch people who did what I did and more —...

    Dozens of Rialto eighth-graders questioned whether the Holocaust occurred in essays written for an in-class assignment this spring. Rialto Unified School District administrators, besieged by criticism after the assignment became public in May, claimed at the time that none of the students who completed the assignment questioned or denied the Holocaust, but a survey of the students’ work by this news organization found numerous examples of students expressing doubt or flatly denying that the Holocaust occurred. :snip: “Students got high praise and grades for writing that the Holocaust was a hoax. I’m sick about that, I’m sick about that,” said...

    The daughter of a Jewish classmate of Anne Frank rescued from the horrors of Bergen Belsen concentration camp has met the British officer who saved her mother's life. Grateful Elizabeth Kahn, 59, flew to Israel to meet Major Leonard Berney, 93, from Plymouth, Devon, and present him with a special silver platter paid for by the family in recognition of his heroics. Jewish Leonard, of the British 11th Armoured division, was one of the first army officers through the gates of Belsen when the camp was liberated on April 15, 1945. It is estimated that 50,000 inmates died in the...

    Dutch BDS Twitter Account Using Image of Anne Frank in Keffiyeh A Twitter account belonging to “@BDSAmsterdam“ is using an outrageous image of Anne Frank dressed in a red keffiyeh, Israeli daily Ma’ariv reported on Thursday. As part of an ongoing campaign to portray Israel as an apartheid state, a Netherlands-based branch of the anti-Israel BDS (‘Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions’) movement, which tweets from the handle, is warping the iconic image of one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust in order to forward its political aims, Ma’ariv said. An active Twitter page, @BDS Amsterdam is refreshed every...

    Would-be Belieber Anne Frank has been getting attention for all the wrong reasons lately. One suburban Detroit mom could have it so she gets no attention at all because of her "female genitalia." In Northville, a well-to-do suburb about 30 miles northwest of Detroit, a parent of a 7th grader takes issue with her daughter's classroom reading an newer, unedited edition of "The Diary of a Young Girl." Frankly, I'm surprised seventh-graders are reading any edition of "Diary"; it (and "Schindler's List," while we're on the subject) didn't reach my hands until high school. Besides the whole evils of the...

    A wit, surveying Washington's monuments, once diagnosed the nation's capital as suffering an "edifice complex." The city's vast array of monumental buildings, housing the three branches of government, honoring the founders and heroes of the republic, and housing extraordinary temples of fine art, science, technology and history, could give an overwhelmed visitor that impression. This week, Bill Clinton remarked how those buildings hold special meaning for visitors from around the world, celebrating the grandest accomplishments of man, and how one stands out as the nation's "conscience." The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum celebrates its 20th anniversary this week. Not everyone thought...

In the passage, Anne Frank discusses the discovery of her genitalia.

    Eva Schloss calmly thrust out her forearm as if a routine gesture, revealing a row of tattooed numbers. The 83-year-old Holocaust survivor fields plenty of requests to see them, as she travels the world telling of her time in the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. “They ask me questions and ‘Can I give you a hug?” Schloss said this week, sitting in the lobby of a San Francisco hotel, where the London resident is on a California speaking tour. “’I’ve never met a Jew, I’ve never met a Holocaust survivor.’ It’s quite amazing.” If Schloss’ story was simply...

    Big Hollywood ^ | 3/7/12 | Joel B. Pollak
    Derrick Bell, the man whose scholarship inspired Barack Obama, was the Jeremiah Wright of academia. And a Hollywood cult hero. Bell was one of the chief proponents of Critical Race Theory, a radical doctrine that holds that American legal institutions—including our civil rights laws—perpetuate white supremacy. Bell’s ideas were not only radical, but bizarre. After leaving Harvard (he resigned in 1992), he wrote a racialist, antisemitic fictional essay titled “The Space Traders,” which Ninth Circuit judge Alex Kozinski described in the New York Times with disgust: Imagine, if you will, that space aliens land in the United States and offer...

    So another radical named Derrick Bell was a  big time pal of Obama. Who was Derrick Bell? He’s dead now, but he was a professor of Law at Harvard University. After leaving Harvard in 1992, he Bell wrote a racialist, antisemitic essay called “The Space Traders” in 1994. HBO, which currently employs misogynist “comedian” Bill Maher, decided to turn this loony essay into a documentary back in the 1990s. The essay was about space aliens coming to earth. Whites would “trade” blacks to the space aliens for gold to pay off the national debt. Bell said Jews would just stand...

Mormons have submitted versions of Anne Frank's name at least a dozen times for proxy rites. She has been posthumously baptized in Mormon temples, at least nine times from 1989-1999, and now again in 2012. Anne Frank's latest baptism was performed in the Santo Domingo Dominican Republic (LDS) Temple. Frank...
