We All Wore Stars: Memories of Anne Frank from Her Classmates by Theo CosterIn 1941, Theo Coster was a student at the Amsterdam Jewish Lyceum, one in a class of 28 Jewish children that the Nazis had segregated from the rest of the Dutch population. Among Theos fellow students was a young Anne Frank, whose diary would later become one of the most important documents of the Holocaust. In this remarkable group portrait, Coster and five of his fellow classmates gather their personal stories and memories of Anne. The accounts collected here do not just help us to rediscover Anne Frank. They also stand on their own as remarkable stories of ingenuity and survival during the Holocaust--from Albert Gomes de Mesquita, who hid in ten different towns across Europe--to Hannah Goslar, who experienced the horrors of Bergen-Belsen but also made a miraculous reconnection with Anne days before her death.

Harjit Singh sat on the bench by the carousel at the airport waiting for his suitcase to arrive. In Amritsar, where he came from in India, it was thirty-seven degrees! In Paris, it was just fourteen degrees. Harjit was a little upset. He did not want to come to Paris. He wanted to stay in India with his friends, but because his father had received a job offer in France, they had to leave India and make a new start.

Senior Krystle Seiler died Thursday night after collapsing during halftime of a powder-puff flag football game. Krystle, who wore a pacemaker because of a congenital heart problem, ran just a few plays in the first part of the game.
