diversify We prefer to give up rather than exercise patience. An important area where tolerance now needs to be greater is religion; we cannot afford a repeat of the great religious conflicts of the past. Where religion is still of great importance, such as in large parts of the Muslim world, religious tolerance is much more fragile.

Otto Frank was Eva Schloss's step-father, and Anne Frank, the diarist through which most American children learn of the Holocaust, was her step-sister. In 1990 she co-founded the Anne Frank Trust in the UK where she still sits as the organization's honorary lifetime president.

Trying to comprehend the numbers of people is a challenge when they are so huge, remembering that these were all individuals is important. The Holocaust Education Trust tries to help this by emphasising individual stories through survivor testimonies and pictures of victims' lives before the war.

In an increasingly divisive world, and at a time when Europe is alarmingly turning to nationalism and extremist politicians, this tragic teenager, who died nearly 70 years ago and who never got to live out the life she planned, can do more than many politicians to demonstrate how we should live together as members of one human race.

Well done Beyonce and Jay-Z . We appreciate your visit and, as we reflect on the 69th anniversary of Anne's terrible death in Bergen-Belsen (the actual date will never be known but it was around three weeks before the camp's liberation) I think you are wonderful for reminding the world what Anne Frank is all about.

We Need to Talk About Justin: Why Not Lay Off Bieber for a Bit?

now it would seem he's topped it all off by reducing the suffering of a race of people, and in particular a girl brutally murdered at age fifteen for her religion, to talking about himself and by proxy the admiration of lyrics like 'Swag on you, chillin' by the fire while we eating fondue'. But should we really be so hard on him?

Justin Bieber Manages to Outrage People by Spending Time at Anne Frank House

I'm no fan of Bieber's music but it seems ludicrous to me that he has got as much criticism for this act as he might have if he was found in brothel snorting cocaine off the body of an underage prostitute. Or just enjoying the pampered VIP lifestyle in Amsterdam and not setting foot in the house.

Is Bieber the Lennon of his generation? No. Is he a self-obsessed teenager? Most probably. Is he being badly managed? Seemingly. Is he a Holocaust denyer? Doubt he knows they exist. Is it time for Bieber to do something positive and media-friendly? Most definitely, failing which, staying in and shutting up would be a start.

Sad F**king Queer

Scott Capurro | Posted 06.02.2013 | UK Comedy
Scott Capurro

I've got a blind spot where the word 'queer' is concerned, unless I'm paying someone £50 to whisper it into my ear. When my sexuality is used as a weapon, the comedy club becomes a schoolyard and I'm 14 again, tall and skinny and femmy and mouthy, a huge ego and a low self esteem.
