Anne Frank's Stepsister Corrects The Record (Int'l Edition)

International -- Readers Report

Anne Frank's Stepsister Corrects the Record (int'l edition)

"A family feud over Anne Frank's legacy" (Letter from Amsterdam, June 14) contains misleading statements. My book, Eva's Story, was written to contribute to Holocaust education, which I do also by lecturing in schools, etc. My income from both the book and from lecturing is tiny, not exceeding $2,000 a year that barely covers the expenses incurred. Fortunately, my family is comfortable financially, allowing me to concentrate all along on the educational effect of my activities.

The fact that I am Anne's stepsister is stated on the cover of my book. It is, after all, true, my mother having married Anne's father after the war. It is also very relevant, because the book contains much about my acquaintance with Anne before Auschwitz and my family's subsequent close links with hers.

Why the Finns Took to the Net (int'l edition)

The country's "bleak remoteness" is hardly a reason for the Internet's popularity in Finland ("Europe goes on Internet time," Editorials, June 7). The real reasons are based on other facts, such as early opening up of the telecommunications market and hence favorable telephone rates, a good school system providing necessary skills for everyone interested in foreign languages, a well-developed higher-level educational system, several university research units that are among the world leaders, a rapidly expanding electronics and telecommunications industry, and the country's early entrance into electronic banking.
