Download PDF for this date

An Anne Frank Foundation, to support the education and training of homeless children in Israel, was established here today. The Foundation’s president, Margarethe Bohr, is the wife of the Nobel prize winning physicist, Professor Niels Bohr. In a radio appeal to the public to contribute to the Foundation, she said: “We could not help Anne Frank, but we can help her brothers and sisters to a better future.”
