Remembering the Holocaust - Diary of Anne Frank airs April 11

Posted on 06 Apr 2010

The Holocaust...Anne Frank...The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum commemorates this emotional and enormous event in our history April 11-18 with the official recognized Days of Remembrance this month.  Remembering the Holocaust in an official way serves a few purposes in my busy and not so always focused mind...stop. think.  remember.  And...then look look forward taking what we learned from this massive event in time....keep our eyes on human rights.  ALL THE TIME.

Masterpiece Classic will air "Diary of Anne Frank" this Sunday, April 11 at 9 p.m. on AETN. If you do watch it and want to join others in discussion, go to PBS's Twitter account to share your thoughts. For information on how to join visit www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/annefrank/twitter.html

I have seen it before a gazillion times.  But I'll watch it again.  Absorb it and think. Check out the Holocaust Museum site too - read stories, plan a trip, post your own story.  Brilliant. It is one of the most moving places I have ever been....if you find yourself anywhere near Washington D.C. it's well worth the time.

"When I was liberated in 1945 by the American Army, somehow many of us were convinced that at least one lesson will have been learnedthat never again will there be war, that hatred is not an option, that racism is stupid…. I was so hopeful."
  Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, during a June 2009 visit to the Buchenwald concentration camp with President Barack Obama, reflecting on his feelings at the moment he was freed.
