Anne Frank and Audrey Hepburn lived just miles away from one another in Holland. Their early lives were in some ways parallel, but their destinies were not. The Frank family famously went into hiding in the secret annex in Amsterdam, where Anne penned her diary before the family was betrayed. The non-Jewish Hepburn family did not face the same risks.

Eva Schloss, stepsister and childhood friend of Holocaust diarist Anne Frank, had already planned a trip to Orange County when it became a flashpoint in the debate about normalizing Nazism. Last weekend, students posed for photos at a party while giving Nazi salutes as they stood by cups arranged in the shape of a swastika while playing a variation of beer pong. Schloss used her trip to reach out to the community, including some of the students who attended the party. The year-old — who, like Anne, hid from the Nazis in Amsterdam as a teenager during World War II, before being captured — spoke with about 55 Newport Harbor High School students, parents and staff members Thursday afternoon about her nine-month incarceration at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp and the deaths at the hands of the Nazis of her father, brother and other family members.
Anne Frank's 'dirty' jokes found on diary pages she covered over
Despite Anne never explicitly giving herself a label, the diary tells of her love for a boy named Peter and also a girl called Jacque. Jacque refused. I also had a terrible desire to kiss her, which I did. Every time I see a female nude, such as the Venus in my art history book, I go into ecstasy.
At the time of publication, certain passages of her diary were removed. The house was hidden from view by houses on all four sides. Only Otto Frank survived. Her passionate declarations of friendship were too much for me sometimes.
