Anne Frank’s publisher has withdrawn a new and controversial work after Dutch scholars presented an in-depth critique of its “most plausible scenario” for who betrayed the Jewish adolescent diarist and her family in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam during World War II.
The Betrayal of Anne Frank
A US publisher of “The Betrayal of Anne Frank: A Cold Case Investigation” declared this week that they will continue to market the book.
Sullivan’s book on cold case studies, published earlier this year, quickly received criticism from Dutch academics and authors.
I’m at a loss. Isn’t it implied by the title “The Betrayal of Anne Frank” that she betrayed something (e.g. trust, ideals, philosophy, etc.)? While this could imply that she (along with her family) was the one betrayed, I’m not sure how to phrase it to signify either or? If that’s the case, you have no idea how much I loathe that. Even for natural English speakers like myself, it’s a challenge to communicate in English. Any grammatical geeks out there?
Who Died in the Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp
Anne Frank, who died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the age of 15 with her sister, penned her famous diary while hiding out in Amsterdam. Her father, Otto Frank, later published the diary in 1947, making it one of the most important records of Jewish life in Nazi-occupied Europe.
Arnold van den Bergh, a Jewish Dutchman, was identified as the source of the Nazis’ knowledge of the Franks’ whereabouts by an inquiry team in January.
Van den Bergh, an Amsterdam legal notary, allegedly provided the German occupiers with a list of Jewish hiding spots in Amsterdam so that he could save his own family. The Prinsengracht back house address where Anne Frank was residing was one of them.
As a result, “The Betrayal of Anne Frank” has been put on hold by its German publisher and its Dutch publisher has been forced to stop producing the book.

If there was no informant, it is possible that the police were searching for fake food stamps or work infractions when they discovered the secret annex behind a moving bookshelf and observed the markings it had made on the floor.
Since there are so many possible outcomes in the story’s plot, it’s like Agatha Christie using Zoom and time travel. Details like what happened when Abraham Puls’ moving business came to take up the belongings of deportees; sleepy neighbours called this being pumped illustrate the town square’s mixture of ordinary life and tragedy.
