During the Second World War

Wild lupins at Westerbork

100,000 people, including Anne Frank and her family, were incarcerated by the Nazis at Westerbork in the Netherlands, before being transported to concentration camps in the East.  On 12 June 2009, the 80th anniversary of Aane Frank’s birth, I visited Westerbork and found an array of wild lupins in a forest clearing where once fear, sickness and death raged.
