The Anne Frank Diary Hoax

As the old saying goes, there's no business like shoah business, like no business I know. So one should not be surprised to learn that the Anne Frank diary is another fable like so much of which comes out of Hollywood.

Although all should know about the forgery of the alleged Frank diary, there are still museums, even in Atlanta, Georgia of all places, still peddling this maudlin tripe to gullible goyim.

The first revelation of the hoax emerged from a trial in Germany when Otto Frank, the father of Anne, hauled into court Ernst Roemer, aged 76 at the time, to sue him for his assertions that Frank peddled forged documents which he called the Anne Frank diary, chronicling her experience while she hid from the Nazis in an attic. Roemer claimed that Frank himself had written the diary - not his dead daughter.

Frank was a Jewish merchant living in Frankfurt before World War 2, but was arrested in the Netherlands, then sent to the Auschwitz work camp. While imprisoned, his daughter Anne died of typhus. No, she was not hiding in an attic in some cattle's home in fear of the "evil" Nazis.

After his release at the end of the war, he pitched the "diary" to different publishers. Before proceeding we should note that Frank walked out of Auschwitz in good enough health, suffered no traumas from persecution, and was not put in an oven. Isn't it astonishing that he was quite possessed of mind to concoct a story to profit from his dead daughter who had just died in 1945?

But the more important point, to put stress upon it, is that the Franks were not hiding out in Holland. They were carted off to Auschwitz as were many other Germans.

After the book hit the big time, there were of course movie rights to cash in. Frank stole the screen play from Meyer Levin who sued him for 50,000 dollars which the court ordered as payment for damages. Ironically, Frank would make the courts his home away home as he sued innumerable people for doubting his hoax.

Doubts and questions surrounded the book from the beginning, but because Germany is a Jewish colony, the courts always ruled in favor Frank. With a string of court victories, Frank thought his victory against Roemer was a fait accompli, and indeed it was in the first two trials.

Perhaps age was catching up with Frank for he made one critical blunder. He managed to find or pay enough handwriting analysts who testified that the writing of his notes and his forged diary were all written by the same hand, and the plaintiff insisted that it was the hand of his dead daughter.

Roemer refused to roll over, as in 1980 it was still possible to contest these matters without receiving mandatory incarceration for even thinking that the holocaust was a fraud. On his third appeal, the court asked the German Federal Criminal Office to perform analysis of Frank's manuscripts - all 3 bound volumes with their 338 pages.

The German authorities concluded that large portions of the diary was written in ball point ink pen, which would not have been a problem if Anne Frank had died after 1951. The ball point pen was not manufactured until 1951, meaning that the large oeuvre, all written by a single hand according to the court testimony, had to be that of Otto Frank - not his daughter.

And besides, how is a sickly 15 year old teenager going to compile all of that material in such a short time, especially when she was hiding in an attic in Holland in fear for her life? In shoah business, anything is possible.

Unfortunately Otto died before the third trial concluded, so defense lawyers could not grill him under cross examination after the FCO issued its report. But the fraud still lives and breathes its hoary breath. Have these people no shame?

The comments section of our referenced article produced one fascinating examination of the diary based upon comparative literary analysis of novels from the 18th and 19th centuries which provides another way of assessing the authenticity of this maudlin tripe.

Before examining that aspect in detail, the author asks if a young girl in hiding from big bad Nazis would really be allowed to keep a journal documenting names of family, friends and collaborators. Should such materials fall into the hands of the Nazis, then these mentioned people would also be at risk for their livelihoods if not lives. So the specter of fantasy haunts the diaries from the very outset.

As we all know, the Germans did catch up with the Franks in 1944 and removed them to Bergen-Belsen where Anne died of typhus caused by the unsanitary conditions in the camp brought about by the ferocious allied bombing. So clearly keeping a diary was not in anyone's interest.

(When Anne died, very near the war's end, she was probably taken to a crematoria if the Germans still had fuel to operate them, or else tossed her corpse in a mass grave if the ovens were no longer operable).

Our mystery writer, Aleth, identified 2 major sources and several minor ones from which the authors or editors drew upon to produce the first version of this maudlin tripe which first appeared in 1947 in the Netherlands.

My theory is that Anne indeed produced a rudimentary diary which did not have enough material or interest for a book, so Otto hired several writers or editors to spruce it up. He or she had the literary background to embellish the actual diary with vignettes, pericopes, and samplings from other works which were applied to the war time story to give it appeal and maudlin sentimentality. Indeed many of the books to be mentioned were targeted to young girls in their early teenaged years.

Aleth notes Der Trotzkop by Emmy von Rhoden, Jakob von Gunten by Robert Walser, plus the following works:
  • Pamela or Virtue Rewarded, by Samuel Richardson, 1740
  • Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship
  • Early 19th Century tales, Hoffman
  • Joop ter Heul, Cissy Marxveldt, 1919-25
  • Through a Window, H G Wells, 1894
  • It Had to be Murder, Cornell Woolrich, 1942
  • Pedagogical concepts and books, Maria Montessori
  • Assorted German writers and philosophers
Aleth identified Anneliese Schutz and Abe Cauvern as Otto Frank's primary collaborators in producing what became Anne Frank's Diary.

In beginning her analysis, Aleth observes that the quality and sophistication of the literary tapestry of the diary exceeds that of a 12-14 year old girl, and draws on too many sources for which such a young girl holed up in an attic would have access.

She then proceeds to pull specific passages from the above mentioned works and correlates them with the corresponding passages in the diary. The observations and insights of Aleth are spectacular and devastating to the idea that a young girl wrote what was published as Anne Frank's Diary.

If the diary had been presented as a work of fiction based on a true story, no one would have any objections or qualms. But the fact that Otto Frank and his collaborators used his dead daughter to bamboozle the goyim with maudlin sentimental tripe is outrageous and disgraceful. Have these people no shame?
