Day 06 – A book that makes you sad

This had been pending for a while. Many of the classics with a tragic ending move me and make me sad. The Mill on the Floss, Jude the Obscure, Tess of D'urbervilles to name a few. But I am not going to write about it now. The Dairy of Anne Frank moved me very much. Anne Frank narrates her life in hiding for two years with her family in an apartment during holocaust. Imagine a teenager forced to live in hiding, who can't have lights in the night for the fear of people finding them out, who can't go for a walk to breathe fresh air, who can't have basic amenities of life like a bathroom. And finally a young life snuffed out before it can blossom. Not one but many millions killed. And this is not fiction.
