Here’s another great book that you and your older grandchildren will enjoy reading. It’s called ‘Anne Frank and Me‘ and tells the story of a modern teen who visits a Holocaust museum with her class and is transported back to the days of Anne Frank.
Since much of the story takes place in the concentration camp and the events leading up to it, the book isn’t suitable for younger readers. Extremely well written, the following quote from the book has become a favorite of mine: “Amazing things happen to people. Then they die. If no one remembers their stories, the memory of who they were and what they did blurs, like watercolor paintings left in the rain. Until, finally, nothing is left on the canvas.”
Those words bring me to tears. Our stories are indeed amazing and deserve to be remembered. Are you taking steps to share yours with future generations?
