The Resistance Reports
March 8, 2017
The statement from Anne Frank Center: “Trump administration ‘infected’ with anti-Semitism” and other similar from the center, may have surprise many people, but for those who know Trump and his chief strategist, Bannon, there is little surprise. Trump, as this bog have often pointed out, with often giving reasons and rationale, along with history, is a Fascist along the line of KKK and Bannon is a neo Natzi.
So of course, a Fascist along the line of KKK and a neo-Nazi, will be, at best, not sensitive to the Jewish people.
The latest is that the Anne Frank Center, the US Holocaust memorial center, statement that the ‘sudden acknowledgement’ of anti-Jewish sentiment ‘is a band-aid on the cancer’ and ‘too little, too late.’

Jewish Holocaust memorial group on Tuesday rejected US President Donald Trump’s denunciation of anti-Semitism, saying it was “pathetic” and “too little, too late,” while accusing the administration of being “infected” with anti-Jewish sentiment.
Steven Goldstein, executive director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, said the president’s “sudden acknowledgement is a band-aid on the cancer of anti-Semitism that has infected his own administration.”
Under pressure by Jewish groups and political leaders, Trump on Tuesday denounced anti-Semitism, a day after bomb threats were made to 11 Jewish community centers across the country and a Jewish cemetery was vandalized in the St. Louis area.
But Goldstein called the statement “a pathetic asterisk of condescension after weeks in which he and his staff have committed grotesque acts and omissions reflecting anti-Semitism, yet day after day have refused to apologize and correct the record.”
Trump’s words were “too little, too late,” Goldstein said.
“Make no mistake,” he said. “The anti-Semitism coming out of this administration is the worst we have ever seen from any administration.”
Annelies Marie Frank
Annelies Marie Frank (German pronunciation: [ʔanəliːs maˈʁiː ˈʔanə ˈfʁaŋk]; Dutch pronunciation: [ʔɑnəˈlis maˈri ˈʔɑnə ˈfrɑŋk]; 12 June 1929 – February or March 1945) was a German-born diarist. One of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust, she gained fame posthumously following the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl (originally Het Achterhuis; English: The Secret Annex), in which she documents her life in hiding from 1942 to 1944, during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. It is one of the world’s most widely known books and has been the basis for several plays and films.
Born in Frankfurt, Germany, she lived most of her life in or near Amsterdam, Netherlands, having moved there with her family at the age of four-and-a-half when the Nazis gained control over Germany. Born a German national, Frank lost her citizenship in 1941 and thus became stateless. By May 1940, the Franks were trapped in Amsterdam by the German occupation of the Netherlands. As persecutions of the Jewish population increased in July 1942, the family went into hiding in some concealed rooms behind a bookcase in the building where Anne’s father worked. From then until the family’s arrest by the Gestapo in August 1944, Anne kept a diary she had received as a birthday present, and wrote in it regularly. Following their arrest, the Franks were transported to concentration camps. In October or November 1944, Anne and her sister, Margot, were transferred to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp from Auschwitz, where they died (probably of typhus) a few months later. They were originally estimated by the Red Cross to have died in March, with Dutch authorities setting 31 March as their official date of death, but research by the Anne Frank House in 2015 suggests they more likely died in February.
Frank’s father, Otto, the only survivor of the family, returned to Amsterdam after the war to find that her diary had been saved by one of the helpers, Miep Gies, and his efforts led to its publication in 1947. It was translated from its original Dutch version and first published in English in 1952 as The Diary of a Young Girl, and has since been translated into over 60 languages.
