Anne Frank, Danville, Ohio & the Letter Writers Alliance

The Letter Writers Alliance posted that Danville, Ohio's young people are seeking postcards so that the more than one million children lost during World War II in the Holocaust may be remembered in a small way by the thought of them.

As I have been nostalgic for Amsterdam, my home on the Bloemgracht and jealous that my friend Barbara is going to visit and stay on a canal boat near my old stomping ground in the Jordaan, the notion of sending a postcard is more than appealing.   The Bloemgracht runs into the Prinsengracht and the Anne Frank House. It is a building I often passed to and from two friend's houses directly across the canal and the way to my daily greengrocer.

So appealing is this request, I thought I'd cross post so that the few that read my blog and may not have heard of the Alliance, would consider joining me in sending a postcard, too.  I think I will turn one of my collages for a holocaust project, stored away, into a postcard, thus in keeping with the theme.

Postcards can be sent to
