On Liberty.me, David Montgomery explains how, based on the laws of the time, Anna Frank was a criminal. Additionally, anyone caught aiding her would have been considered breaking the law. He opines that not much has changed since then.

Are you female? Imagine yourself as a 15-year old being stripped naked by guards, having your head shaved, getting tattooed with a serial number, and then being forced into non-stop hard labor. Take a moment and imagine having a daughter who suffered this fate.

We’re members of a species that does this. Not as an act of spontaneous insanity, but deliberately and methodically. Let us remember: It was legal.
