Anne Frank Haus: Ein Museum Mit Einer Geschichte



I started reading this book very coincidentally. The boy was playing at the settee where the books at home are shelved and I was seated right where the books are. Looking after him could be a prolonged chore, so I decided to reach out for a book – this book – and started to read it.
