"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." - This quote from Anne Frank rings as true today as it did 70 years ago.

If granted refugee status into America, historians suggest she would be an 86 year old woman living in Boston - a writer. Instead, she died at the age of 15 at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany.
