Anne Frank’s Bells


① memo 20170225 ~ Anne Frank’s Bells ~ Anne writes 11 July 1942 in here diary about the ‘Westertoren’ (Western tower) bells : “I loved it from the start, and especially in the night it’s like a faithful friend.”
Here the Westertoren bells are chiming and striking 6 PM over the hiding place of Anne Frank. That house is the illuminated house here at the very end of this canal (Bloemgracht) where I am filming at twilight a couple of days ago, where it ends in the Prinsengracht canal with Anne’s house on the bank across the canal.
