  1. Israelis Donate Copies of Anne Frank Diary to Japan

    The Israeli embassy in Japan has donated more than 300 copies of Anne Frank’s well-known memoir to Tokyo libraries, where copies of the book were recently vandalized. Frank’s Diary of a Young Girl is extremely popular in Japan, where sales are second only to the U.S. Police are investigating the surprising act of vandalism in a country with little history of anti-Semitism. Israeli officials have expressed trust in the authorities, stating that one act of vandalism should not be taken to represent the attitudes of the Japanese people.
