58 - I teach and have never once heard any student express any kind of interest in what publishing company was responsible for a book.
I sincerely doubt the student meant to ask about the publisher.

That wasn't the origin of my comment. My comment was basically explaining it could've gotten more stupid than that. I just added the faith in humanity bit at the end, doesn't mean that's what my comment was about. And yes, I'm sorry that I made it unclear.

In a manner of speaking, yes. Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. The fact that the kids didn't know (and worse, couldn't deduce) who wrote Anne Frank's diary is a worry, and highlights how quickly history has been forgotten - or in this case, how too many adults forgot to teach the Holocaust to the next generation. So yes, if it remains uncorrected, it could be seen as the beginning of the end. Bigotry in any form should never be overlooked. Kids need to learn about that time in history in order to educate and hopefully avoid a repeat performance (though the way Russia is going at the moment, it's not looking good).

I said the comment, not the movie. Implying that your comment MUST be hilarious because it's a reference is like thinking a comment must automatically be funny because it's sarcastic. I doubt I'm the only one who thinks making movie references is just lazy and unoriginal humor.


The comments on my post implied that I honestly didn't know that's Helen Keller I was referring to. I figured the down votes were because of that, not because anyone found it unfunny.

Maybe he's one of these conspiracy theorists who believes the diary is a forgery.

He probably also believes the moon landing was faked and that Elvis is alive and working at McDonald's in Alabama.
