He died on 16 December in Toronto, after a long illness, at the age of Bep and Miep found Anne's diaries and papers after the eight prisoners, together with Kugler and Kleiman, had been arrested and removed from the building.
Bep left Opekta shortly after the war and married Cornelius van Wijk in While she did grant an interview to a Dutch magazine[ citation needed ] some years after the war, she mostly shunned publicity.
However, Bep kept her own scrapbook of Anne-related articles throughout her life.
Bep and her husband had four children, the last a daughter whom she named "Anne Marie", in honor of Anne. Bep died in Amsterdam on 6 May For example, he designed and built the "swinging bookcase" that concealed the entrance to the annex.KSM Show- Celebrity couples (Mr and Mrs Van Vicker) Part 1
However, Anne often mentioned his health problems in her diary, and he became incapacitated after a diagnosis of abdominal cancer. He ultimately died of the disease in late Novemberand Otto Frank attended his funeral on December 1. While Hannah was in Bergen-Belsen, she met Auguste van Pels by asking through a hay-filled barbed wire fence if anyone who could hear her voice spoke Dutch.
Hannah was astonished, as she, like most people back in Amsterdam, believed the Franks had escaped to Switzerland. Hannah was able to talk to Anne several times through the barrier and to toss some essentials over it for her. Shortly after Hannah threw the bundle over the fence for Anne, Anne's contingent of prisoners was moved, and Hannah never heard from her again.
Hannah and her little sister Gabi were the only members of their family to survive the war, and Hannah was near death from typhus and tuberculosis when the Russians liberated the train in which she and Gabi were being transported, reportedly to Theresienstadt.
After recovering, Hannah emigrated to Israelbecame a nurseand ultimately a grandmother of ten. She was considered the "quiet" one of the trio of "Anne, Hanne and Sanne". She was very intelligent, and according to Anne, very facile with poetry. Sanne's full first name is variously listed in different sources as both "Susanne" and "Susanna". Only her friends called her "Sanne"; her family used the more Germanic "Susi". Sanne and her parents were sent first to Westerborkthen on 16 November to Auschwitz, where all three were gassed upon arrival.
Sanne's sister Barbara Ledermann, who was a friend of Margot's, had, through contacts in the Dutch Undergroundacquired an Aryan ID card becoming "Barbara Waarts" and worked as a courier for the Underground.
Jacqueline van Maarsen born 30 Janor "Jacque", as she was known to everyone, was Anne's "best" friend at the time the Frank family went into hiding. Jacque sincerely liked Anne, but found her at times too demanding in her friendship. Anne, in her diary later, was remorseful for her own attitude toward Jacque, regarding with better understanding Jacque's desire to have other close girlfriends as well - "I just want to apologize and explain things", Anne wrote.
After two and a half months in hiding, Anne composed a farewell letter to Jacque in her diary, vowing her lifelong friendship. Jacque read this passage much later, after the publication of the diary. Jacque's French-born mother was a Christian, and that, along with several other extenuating circumstances, combined to get the "J" for "Jew" removed from the family's identification cards.
The van Maarsens were thus able to live out the war years in Amsterdam. Jacque later married her childhood sweetheart Ruud Sanders and still lives in Amsterdam, where she is an award-winning bookbinder and has written four books on their notable friendship: Nanette "Nanny" Blitz born 6 Apr was another schoolmate of Anne's.
Nannette, by her own admission, was the girl given the made-up initials "E. While they were not always on the best of terms during school days their personalities were much too similarNanny had been invited to Anne's 13th birthday party, and when they met in Bergen-Belsen, their reunion was enthusiastic.
With prisoners constantly being shifted around in the huge camp, Nanny quickly lost track of Anne. Nannette was the only member of her family to survive the war.
While she was recovering from tuberculosis in a hospital immediately after the war, Otto Frank got in touch with her, and she was able to write and give him some information about her encounter with Anne at Belsen.
Ilse Wagner, whom Jacque van Maarsen described as "a sweet and sensible girl", is mentioned several times in the early part of the diary.
Ilse's family had a table tennis set, and Anne and Margot frequently went to her house to play. Wagner was the first of Anne's circle of friends to be deported. For all the admiring boys Anne was surrounded with during her school days, she said repeatedly in her diary that the only one she deeply cared about was Peter Schiff, whom she called "Petel".
He was three years older than Anne and they had, according to Anne, been "inseparable" during the summer ofwhen Anne turned Then, Peter changed addresses and a new acquaintance slightly older than Peter convinced him Anne was "just a child". Anne had several vivid dreams of Peter while in hiding, wrote about them in her diary, and realized herself that she saw Peter van Pels, at least partially, as a surrogate for Peter Schiff.
Anne implies in her diary 12 January that Peter Schiff gave her a pendant as a gift, which she cherished from then on. Schiff was also a prisoner at Bergen-Belsen, though he was transported from there to Auschwitz before Anne and Margot arrived at Belsen.
It is known for certain that he died in Auschwitz, although the exact date of his death is unclear. Helmuth "Hello" Silberberg was the boy Anne was closest to at the time her family went into hiding, though they had only known each other about two weeks at that time.
Born in Gelsenkirchen, Germanyhis parents sent him to Amsterdam to live with his grandparents, believing, like Otto Frank, that Hitler would respect The Netherlands' neutrality.
Silberberg's grandfather, who disliked the name Helmuth, dubbed him "Hello". Hello was 16 and adored Anne, but she wrote in her diary that she was "not in love with Hello, he is just a friend, or as mummy would say, one of my 'beaux'", though Anne also remarked in her diary on how much she enjoyed Hello's company, and she speculated that he might become "a real friend" over time.
By a very convoluted series of events, including several narrow escapes from the Nazis, Hello eventually reunited with his parents in Belgium. Belgium was also an occupied country, however, and he and his family were still "in hiding", though not under circumstances as difficult as the Franks'. The American forces liberated the town where the Silberbergs were hiding on 3 Septemberand Hello was free — tragically on the same day that Anne and her family left on the last transport from Westerbork to Auschwitz.
Hello emigrated to the United States after the war and was later known as Ed Silverberg. He died in at age The Geiringers lived on the opposite side of Merwedeplein, the square where the Franks' apartment was located, and Eva and Anne were almost exactly the same age.
Mrs.Van Daan's Diary
Eva was also a close friend of Sanne Ledermann's, and she knew both Anne and Margot. As long as he had cigarettes, he was a quiet and calm man, but without them, he grew cranky.
