New study casts doubt on theory Anne Frank was betrayed

Post  Lamplighter on Sat Dec 17, 2016 12:20 pm

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) December 17, 2016 — Anne Frank may not have been betrayed to Nazi occupiers, but captured by chance. A new study published Friday by the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam says that despite decades of research there is no conclusive evidence that the Jewish diarist and her family were betrayed to the Netherlands' German occupiers during World War II, leading to their arrest and deportation.

Ronald Leopold, Executive Director of the Anne Frank House museum, said in a statement Friday that new research by the museum "illustrates that other scenarios should also be considered." One possible theory is that the Aug. 4, 1944, raid that led to Anne's arrest could have been part of an investigation into illegal labor or falsified ration coupons at the canal-side house where she and other Jews hid for just over two years.

Anne kept a diary during her time in hiding that was published after the war and turned her into a globally recognized symbol of Holocaust victims. She died in the Bergen-Belsen Nazi concentration camp at age 15, shortly before it was liberated by Allied forces.

Entirely possible, I should think, LL.

It doesn't change anything really, though, it doesn't change Anne's horrible death, or the deaths of the millions of other victims of the Nazis.

Quite. I lost relatives in the quarries of Mauthausen - their crime? Influential Christian intellectuals who openly defied the Nazis and tried to protect the Jews. They were apocalyptical and dangerous times. Let us hope it never happens again. LL
