Good Reading : July 2005
goodreading 25 writer’s house After a month of being in hiding a decision was taken to camouflage the entry door to the Annex. Two treads had to be removed making it a one and a half foot (45.72 cm) step up to enter the Annex. A panel was used to board-up the top of the doorway and a map hung in front of it. By pulling a cord hanging next to the bookcase the helpers were able to unlatch the hook and then the bookcase could be swung open. With a handle, the people in hiding can pull the door closed from the inside and latch it once again.
