Caroline Glick’s Opinion piece in the Jerusalem Post last week forces us to think about the damage that the recent merger of the New Israel Fund with the Anne Frank Foundation can produce. This is the latest chapter in the theft of Anne Frank’s legacy, which began in the 1950’s. The merger also de-judaizes Frank’s legacy.
Historic realities of past horrors against the Jewish people cannot be diminished. Unfortunately Anne Frank’s diary has been turned into a universal message of suffering, thereby removing any trace of its Jewish origin and the real reason for Frank penning her experiences.
