The View From the Secret Window


Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is November 28th, 2007, I’m Royce, and I’m here to discuss the event of Anne Frank’s special tree. When Anne Frank was in hiding, all of the windows to her room were blacked out. But the one that was not, the view was of a chestnut tre, which gave Anne much comfort. But now, there is an argument on whether or not to cut it down. The Trees Institute insists that it remain, but the owner is afraid that the tree will fall on the house or people, and then he will be to blame. Read this article, that we read today in future school and leave a comment on what you think. Should this historic tree be cut down, or shall it remain? Leave us a comment and tell us!


Remember, I’m Royce, and this is the Modern Typewriter, OUT!

    Wow awsome artical! My class and I read this in class.
    I think that the owner of the land should be able to diside if he wants to keep the tree or not… but there are two sides to every story!

    hey again im from the blurb and we did this article in class too. i thnk the person who owns the land should decide becasue he bought that land and the tree came with it. but it is a historicle landmark so it is very hard 2 decide most people are saying not to cut it down becasue it is comeing from ther hearts decsion but the man who owns the tree and the land is making a decsion from his head soo ithink maybe he should think twice or all of the other people.

    ps also if you go to you will find that every one uses fake names i think is a really good way to keep yourself safe
    forexampl im “slepping beauty”

    Well, Sleeping Beauty, you might not know this, but we have a selection of fake names we use. The “posters” on the Modern Typewriter have a fake name. For example, someone’s real name isn’t Royce.
