    yes a real hero
    and she always said she did not want to be called a hero or known as one.
    i think she always wanted to be remembered as a housewife.
    what a fine woman!

    She has read a book about her (biography). She then attempted to read the Diary and it was "too much". I think literally and figuratively. She knows about Hitler and the concentration camps but still has a bit of trouble wrapping her head around it.
