Song for Anne

September 6, 2010

Anne at her desk 2“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.” Anne Frank

For the bells Anne heard every day she was in hiding, click on Bells 1 (recorded with my iPhone). You’re listening to the tolling from Westerkerk, a Protestant church on the sun-dappled Prinsengracht Canal in Amsterdam. The Frank family’s Secret Annex was two doors down from this 17th century church.

    What a wonderful idea to link the audio to this post, Alison! I love the sound of church bells. And what an apt quotation from Anne Frank; why can't more people in this world share that sentiment?
