    ‘With this letter, dear Mr Frank, I would like to ask you if it is not a good idea to occasionally focus our attention on brave Peter. How a boy of fifteen held out in the concentration camp, as you yourself told me, how he did his best for other people, and so on. Of course the marvellous, intelligent Anne deserves all the attention, but the boy had such a close bond with her, and he certainly meant a great deal to her – why not some praise for him now and then? This is no more than an idea, but I think all too often of all the heroes who were not lucky enough From the archives of the Anne Frank Houseto have kept diaries.’

  5. Prince CharlesPrince Charles:

    The only sad thing for me was not being able to go further into other parts of Nigeria, it is such a vast country and obviously there are so many other states and interesting areas. I know many are facing different challenges and other opportunities, so it was a pity not being able to do that, but otherwise it's always marvellous coming here because people are so friendly. I'm always intrigued by the way so many of these young, for instance, are developing really interesting ideas that they can turn into businesses and things like that, helping to tackle some of the real issues we face, particularly around the environment and waste and goodness knows what else. Very ingenious characters.
