“This is D-Day, the BBC announced at 12. This is the day. The invasion has begun … we’ll need to be brave to endure the many fears and hardships and the suffering yet to come … the best part about the invasion is that I have a feeling that friends are on the way …
… I hear the approaching thunder that one day will destroy us too. I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better. That this suffering too will end. That peace and tranquility will return once more.”
– Anne Frank
Do listen to the full serialisation of Anne Frank’s diary on the BBC, it’s very poignant.
