“How could I have known how much it meant for her to see a patch of blue sky, to observe the flying seagulls, or how important that chestnut tree was to her, when she had never shown an interest in nature before.  But once she felt like a caged bird, how she longed for it.  Even just the thought of the open air gave her comfort, but she kept all these feelings to herself.”
–Otto Frank
