Anne Frank New Book
By Micah Halpern

Friday February 4, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

A huge uproar has been brewing about a new book on Anne Frank.

This new book asserts that the Frank family’s hiding place was given up to the Nazis by a Jewish notary.

The European Jewish Congress (EJC) which represents 42 Jewish communities of Europe has asked the publisher to pull the book titled “The Betrayal of Anne Frank: A Cold Case Investigation”. According to the EJC, the book damages the reputation of Anne Frank and will cause even more Jew hatred.

Several scholars have said the conclusions drawn by this work are dubious.

Moshe Kantor, EJC president, sent a note to Harper Collins, the book’s publisher. In his note Kantor explained that the book poses a "potentially incendiary claim... at a time when anti-Semitism and the denial and distortion of the Holocaust are on the rise.”

Kantor continued: "In our view, the publication...has deeply hurt the memory of Anne Frank, as well as the dignity of the survivors and the victims of the Holocaust.”

The thing about history, is that eventually, the truth comes out. Mistakes are common when retelling and writing history - some are larger mistakes and some are smaller. It is my belief that we should let historians and analysts argue it out.

It is never good to be on the side of censorship.
