Mandela--Nelson, The words of Anne Frank ring true today as a eulogy to this great man: "I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out." His lifelong work to achieve his ideals of social equality and the elimination of discrimination is a lesson for us all. The Anne Frank Center (USA), Paul Kaplan and Deborah Chapin, Co-Chairs; Yvonne Simons, Executive Director.
