Omron HJ-203-EK Walking Style Pocket Pedometer Step Counter Black
Omron HJ-203-EK Walking Style Pocket Pedometer Step Counter Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, reliable product and now essential to my everyday fitness and life, 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having purchased assorted pedometers in the past which sooner or later failed, I researched the Omron carefully prior to purchase. I have been delighted with it and it has encouraged me to attempt to take 10000 steps every day. Easy to use and reliable, friends have taken an interest in it as well and intend to purchase one for themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable insight into the life in hiding and imprisonment of Anne Frank., 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the most poignant, absorbing and thought- provoking books I've read. Miep Gies was a woman of extraordinary courage, fortitude, tenacity and intelligence. Her story focuses on Anne Frank's plight, that of her immediate family and of the other three persecuted Jews who hid for over two years in the secret annexe in Prinsengracht, Amsterdam. Without the continuous help of Miep, and other brave sympathisers including her husband, Anne would never have remained at liberty for so long. Miep enjoyed a very special relationship with Anne and she reveals fascinating insights into her character, her attitudes, her philosophies, her dreams and her fears. Miep sets her account within the wider context of both her own, often very challenging and vulnerable life, and the daily hardships, indignities, dangers and struggle for survival of the people of Amsterdam and its Jewish community. Her descriptions of elderly Jews, too old to be helped to hide or escape, stoically awaiting a cruel, merciless fate are arresting and upsetting. Miep rejects all suggestions that she was a hero. When you've read her book, you'll realise that this unassuming, principled, wise and humane woman was precisely that - a real hero.
