In­sen­si­tive trib­ute

Vocable (All English) - - À 360° -

An Am­s­ter­dam bak­ery called “Anne & Frank” has been forced to change its name af­ter a pub­lic out­cry. Crit­ics ar­gued it was taste­less for the owner to link his busi­ness to the world-fa­mous Holo­caust vic­tim. The lat­ter said that Anne Frank was a hero­ine of his, like many peo­ple, and that it “seemed like a nice name” be­cause his bak­ery is lo­cated close to the Anne Frank House.
