It’s crazy to think, not that many years ago in Europe people had to fight for their lives merely because they had a different religion. They were in hiding because they were Jewish. Our world today has already made great improvements in some parts of Europe, yet there are still so many improvements to be made in regards to racism, gender, different beliefs or merely different world views.


I truly dream of a day where we can see that differences are beautiful and that’s what makes each of us individual. Let’s accept everybody for who they are!


To not repeat mistakes from the past, it is super important to keep real history alive! We can speak of luck that this house was not demolished due to the Anne Frank foundation as there were people who wanted to tear down this property for other business purposes.





We are generation change!


Enjoy! Yours truly,
