Cultures create myths and fables because they need them; thus was born the real-life fable of Anne Frank. A Jewish girl who kept a diary during the two years her family spent hiding in an Amsterdam attic before her death in a Nazi concentration camp in 1945, Frank fulfilled a complex collective need when her diary was published in 1947.

Thirteen days until New Year's Eve and Bill Kalmenson is checking airline flight schedules. To Tonga. To Peru. He wants adventure. He wants beautiful scenery. Mostly, though, he wants out of L.A. As Dec. 31 looms, Kalmenson has no plans and no date. "It's bad enough when Saturday night is coming at you--that's a train that runs over me every week," mused Kalmenson, a 43-year-old film writer and director.

Simon Wiesenthal, who survived a dozen concentration camps, then spent his life bringing Nazi war criminals to justice and searing the Holocaust into the conscience of the world, died Tuesday. He was 96. Wiesenthal died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Vienna, said Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. He had been in declining health since the death of his wife, Cyla, in November 2003.
