New Study Casts Doubt On Whether Anne Frank Was Betrayed

Research indicates Nazi raid in which teenage diarist was caught may have been part of probe into illegal labor or falsified ration coupons at house where she and other Jews hid

TIMES OF ISRAEL/AP — (THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS) 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 that new research by the museum “illustrates that other scenarios should also be considered.”

One theory is that the Aug. 4, 1944, raid that led to Anne’s arrest was 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. […]

  1. Since (((Sarah Silverman))) said I quote, “Yes we jews killed your Jesus, and if he comes back we will kill him again”. Well Sarah, “I hope WE killed Anne Frank and if she comes back we will kill her again”.

  2. Curious legal matters regarding the ‘Anne Frank Diaries’, the most profitable Jewish book ever published … Anne Frank’s father Otto Frank survived the war till the 1960s … during World War II, oddly enough, Otto Frank was a Netherlands Jewish contract supplier to the Nazi Wehrmacht (military), & was jailed on a charge of overcharging, but lived past the war, unlike his daughter

    New York Jewish writer Meyer Levin sued Otto Frank before Jewish judges in New York, Levin claiming he ‘helped write the Anne Frank diaries’, showing correspondence as evidence … he was successful & was awarded US $50,000 (more than half a million in today’s dollars) … apparently the German Bundes Kriminal Amt forensically examined the ‘Diaries’ & declared they were all written by the same hand … in ball point pen … ball point pens were not available until 1951 … whilst little Anne had died during the war ending in 1945

    The Jewish community, curiously enough, recently admitted that Anne Frank’s father had ‘co-authored’ the diaries … because that prevented the ‘Anne Frank Diaries’ from becoming ‘public domain’ 75 years after the author’s death, this enables the Anne Frank estate to collect profits from the book sales for more than another decade
