In early July 1942, after Margot Frank received a letter ordering her to report to a work camp in Germany, Anne Franks family went into hiding in an attic apartment behind Otto Franks business, located at Prinsengracht 263 in Amsterdam. In an effort to avoid detection, the family left a false trail suggesting theyd fled to Switzerland.

Excerpt from:

Anne Frank – World War II –

JERUSALEM An international organization involved in assessing post-conflict reconstruction says it will take 20 years under current levels of restrictions to rebuild the Gaza Strip’s battered and neglected housing stock following the war between Hamas and Israel. Most of the new building would be to make up for the current housing deficit, rather than to address damage from fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants.

After a relaxing hour drive to the town of Rosebud, my wife and I recently took in The Diary of Anne Frank, a show we had even more appreciation for after recently seeing the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Based on the diary of a 13- to 15-year-old girl, the book has sold 30 million copies in 67 languages and the story still strikes chords nearly 70 years later.
