I was 10 when I read The Diary of Anne Frank. As a Jewish girl, I grew up with the story of Anne. She could have been me; she could have been any of us. The idea that this work could be deemed pornographic is beyond insulting.
The pop sensation is in the news for writing in the guestbook at the Anne Frank museum that the young Jewish woman was a "great girl" and that she would be a "Belieber" if she were alive with him today. A question comes to mind in the present frenzy: Can anything be sacred?
The most positive aspect of Bieber's visit to the Anne Frank House is that millions of teenage fans who previously had no idea who she was, will now know at least part of the sad, yet inspiring, story of Anne Frank.
