Anne Frank: She was one of a kind

" ... in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. 
I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. 
I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquilty will return again." - Anne Frank

Found this quotation on the net and decided to share it with you guys. I read her book, Diary of a young girl by Anne Frank  many years ago and although I can't remember the details of her story, I still remember how her story affect me. It was a good read and highly recommended for those book lover out there. :)

A lil bio of Anne:
Anne Frank (1929 - 1945), Dutch Jewish diarist; born in Germany. Diary of a Young Girl, entry dated July 15, 1944 (1947)

Frank and her family were hiding in Holland when she wrote this. On August 4, their hiding place would be raided by the police, and they would be sent to German and Dutch concentration camps. All of them except Otto Frank, the father, would perish; Anne died in Bergen-Belsen, a German camp, just two months before the liberation of Holland.
