Anne Frank Book Pulled Off Library Shelves?

Anne Frank has been a major inspiration in my life.

Disappointed to hear that Culpepper Virginia schools have pulled a version of Anne Frank’s diary off the shelves.

They made this decision because a parent had complained about “sexual words” being in the book.

It isn’t right to accuse someone of something without knowing the full story. Fear that the parent may be a holocaust denier and has requested the book to be pulled off the shelf by using the complaint of “sexual words.” Hope the real reason was for the sexual content.

As a reminder, the diary was originally written by a child, Anne Frank, in the 1940s. In a sarcastic tone of voice, “I’m certain the parent’s child isn’t exposed to anything sexual in the 2010s daily media.”

Glad to see that the original version of Anne Frank’s diary is still being used in the school.
