Did the Nazis murder Anne Frank?

This question is brought up in a news article which you can read in full at https://www.timesofisrael.com/new-dutch-play-about-anne-frank-doesnt-mention-jews-or-nazis/

The news article is quoted below:

AMSTERDAM (JTA) — A play that ignores Anne Frank’s Jewish identity and features an unfounded assault allegation against a Jew who hid with her is generating controversy in the Netherlands.

The play, which is slated to premiere Saturday in the Netherlands, is set in modern times and mentions neither the Nazis nor why they murdered Anne Frank, the teenage diarist who wrote her world-famous journal while hiding in German-occupied Amsterdam during the Holocaust.

My photo of the memorial stone for Anne Frank [this is not her grave]

Did the Nazis really murder Anne Frank? No!

Anne Frank and her older sister, Margot, both died of typhus at the Bergen-Belsen camp, shortly before the liberation of the prisoners. A tombstone for them, which is shown in my photo above, has been placed at the site of the former camp, but Anne and her sister are buried in one of the mass graves on the grounds of the former camp. No one knows the exact location of their remains. In the background of the photo above is one of the mass graves where prisoners who died in the camp were buried.

Just when I am beginning to like Trump, his approval rating hits historic low

Filed under: Trump — furtherglory @ 11:00 am

You can read about Trump’s approval rating in this news article: 05/politics/wapo-abc-poll-nov-5/index.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, 59% disapprove of Trump’s handling of the presidency — the worst of any president at nine months in office since modern polling began. Of those who disapprove, 50% say they do so strongly. Only 37% of those polled approve of Trump’s performance in office.
Trump is the first president since Harry Truman to see a net-negative approval at this point in his term, according to The Washington Post. Former President Bill Clinton had the next worst, with a net positive of 11 points.
A record percentage of respondents (65%) do not think that Trump is “honest and trustworthy,” up from 58% in April 2017, while a third say he does have these characteristics. Two-thirds say they do not think Trump “has the kind of personality and temperament it takes to serve effectively as president.”
End quote from news article
What is Trump’s problem, you ask.
I think that Trump’s problem is that he is not in touch with the common people. He hangs out with billionaires like himself and with leaders of other countries. He should remove his wig and go out among the common people to see what ordinary people see and do.
I think that Hillary Clinton has the same problem. I read her book and I learned that she only hob nobs with upper class rich people.
