However, the narrative crafted by Otto Frank and various fund-raising organizations has collapsed due to recent scholarship.
While the death of Anne Frank can only be viewed as a tragedy, the facts of the story are in direct contradiction to mainline Holocaust Belief propaganda. Anne Frank may be to be slipping into the Memory Hole.
Numerous organizations have raised tens of millions of dollars by exploiting the Anne Frank story. One of the latest was "The Cold Case Team;" a team of "forensic investigators using cold case techniques and supported by artificial intelligence."
In a widely heralded venture, Ex-FBI investigator Vince Pankoke promised a breakthrough discovery on who betrayed Anne along with a documentary film as part of his $5,000,000 fund raising drive, all to be released this week on the 75th anniversary of the "Betrayal." Part of Mr. Panoke's fund-raise efforts was an on-line "tell all diary" which kept his donors apprised of his progress. His first and his last posts tell the whole story of his venture

"Working undercover for the FBI meant that I could not tell anyone about my work. Now that I have started the preliminary investigation about the arrest and possible betrayal of Anne Frank, I can finally share my experiences with my loved ones, in particular with my daughter, Kate."
The last post May 10, 2018-
“Due to the sensitivity of our investigation I’ve decided to put this my diary on hold until further notice. " [emphasis added]
The true (or highly likely) facts of the Anne Frank Story are wildly divergent from the propaganda. Bumping into inconvenient facts seemed to have caused Mr. Pankoke's claim of "sensitivity" for the material.
Pankoke's fundraising story
"Anne, her parents, Otto and Edith, and her older sister, Margot, were forced to leave Germany because of the growing anti-Semitism in Germany after the rise of Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party."
The actual story- the Shady Otto Frank.
Otto and his older brother Robert had left Germany before the National Socialists came to power; Otto for the US in 1909 and Robert for France in 1930. Otto did return to Germany and, in the 1920's, 1930's, and the 1940's engaged in various petty criminal affairs. He bankrupted his family's business, married Edith Hollander for money and bankrupted her family business in the 1920's, went on to work for a Germany food company, stole their client list in Holland, and, with the help of brother-in-law Erich Elias got a job with Opekta selling their products in Holland.
Along the way there were several affairs, some with Opekta employees, particularly Jetje Jansen. When the Germans came to Holland, Otto collaborated with the Nazis but also dealt in various black market activities. One might excuse the criminal acts during wartime but they were part of a life-long pattern with Otto Frank. While none of what Otto did justifies the tragedy that befell Anne, it was Otto Frank who caused Prinsengracht 263 to be visited by the police economic crimes unit. It was also Otto's criminal acts that caused the Frank family to be sent to Auschwitz rather than Theresienstadt or Bergen-Belsen or left in Westerbork.
Anne Frank was evidence of German policies
Official history is that all non-working Jewish people arriving at Auschwitz were murdered by being "gassed." But of the eight people from the Annex at Prinsengracht 263, not one was killed in a gas chamber. Instead, five of the eight were transported back to Germany-Austria in November 1944.
The pattern is the same with other groups closely associated with Anne Frank such as the 4 members of the Geiringers family and Janny Brandes-Brilleslijper. Of this sample of detainees, no one gassed, most were sent out of Auschwitz, and many died of the extreme conditions at the end of the War.
Even more telling are the facts regarding transports out of Westerbork Camp, in Holland. Of the last 5 transports out of Westerbork (from July 31, 1944), only one went to Auschwitz; the September 3, 1944 departure with the Frank family on board. 2,757 other detainees were sent to Bergen-Belsen or Theresienstadt and 876 more detainees remained in Westerbork until liberation. In fact, a large train with 2,087 detainees left for Theresienstadt on September 4, 1944, the day after the Franks were sent to Auschwitz.
In short, the story of Anne Frank fundamentally contradicts official Holocaust history.
In short, the story of Anne Frank fundamentally contradicts official Holocaust history.
Of course it does. She was deported OUT of Auschwitz, where supposedly "Women and children were gassed on arrival" to Bergen Belsen.
Why waste the effort and not just gas her? Why wasn't anyone that was with her gassed?
The Importance of Anne Frank
While Anne Frank’s story is tragic, you ignore the manner of death of the 8 people in the Annex. The official history is that non-working Jewish people arriving at Auschwitz were all “gassed." But of the eight sent to Auschwitz on September 3, 1944 from the Annex, not one of them was killed in a gas chamber. Instead, five of the eight were transported back to Germany-Austria in November 1944.
The details of the eight individuals from the Annex are:
The Frank Family was detained for failing to report for labor service and for going into hiding.
1. Anne Frank-- sent to Auschwitz, then transported to Belsen where she died of typhus (in Belsen not Auschwitz).
2. Otto Frank-- left behind in Auschwitz with those in the sick barracks. Survived the War.
3. Edith Frank-Holländer--left behind in Auschwitz as the Germans retreated.
4. Margot Frank (Anne's older sister) died of typhus in Belsen (not Auschwitz).
5. Fritz Pfeffer, sent to Auschwitz then transported to Neuengamme concentration camp where he died on 20 December 1944. His cause of death is listed in the camp records as "enterocolitis."
6. Auguste van Pels born Auguste Röttgen (Hermann's wife), whose date of death is unknown. Witnesses testified that she was with the Frank sisters during part of their time in Bergen-Belsen. According to German records, van Pels was sent to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany with a group of eight women on November 26, 1944. Hannah Goslar's testimony was that she spoke to van Pels through the barbed wire fence "in late January or early February". Auguste was transferred on February 6, 1945 to Raguhn (Buchenwald in Germany), then to the Czechoslovakia camp Theresienstadt ghetto on April 9, 1945.
7. Peter van Pels died in Mauthausen (not Auschwitz).
8. Hermann van Pels died in Auschwitz. It is often claimed that he was "gassed." However, according to eyewitness testimony, this did not happen on the day of his arrival there. Sal de Liema, an inmate at Auschwitz who knew both Otto Frank and Hermann van Pels, said that after two or three days in the camp, van Pels mentally "gave up." He later injured his thumb on a work detail, and requested to be sent to the sick barracks. There is no evidence whatever for the assertion that Hermann van Pels was gassed.
The pattern is the same with other groups closely associated with Anne Frank who were also sent to Auschwitz from Holland.
9. Eva Geiringer -- born May 11, 1929. Sent to Auschwitz May 1944 Step-sister of Anne Frank. Survived the War.
10. "Fritzy" Geiringer, mother of Eva, Married Otto Frank. Survived the War.
11. Heinz Geiringer, brother. Survived Auschwitz but died on a forced march out of the camp.
12. "Pappy" Geiringer. Survived Auschwitz but died on a forced march out of the camp.
The Geiringers were immigrants from Austria; They too ignored a call up for labor service received July 6, 1942 and went into hiding. They were found out on May 11, 1944, detained and were sent to Auschwitz that month.
13. Janny Brandes-Brilleslijper. Was arrested for forgery. Was in the Westerbork, Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps. Traveled to Auschwitz on the same train as the Frank family and to Belsen with Anne and Anne's older sister Margot. Survived the War.
14. Lientje, sister of Janny. Was in the Westerbork, Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps with Janny. Survived the War.
Elsewhere you have praised the “relentless pursuit of historical details." You are right. Details allow us to learn what really happened. In this case the details tell us that none of the people traveling with Anne Frank died in “gas chambers.” Why? And why did the Germans transport Anne, her sister, Janny, Lientje and so many others back into Germany in 1944? These are details which should profoundly affect our, and your, understanding of German policies.
The conundrum of the details is heighten by the records of transports out of Westerbork.

From January 11, 1944 thousands of detainees were transported to Bergen-Belsen
or Theresienstadt, generally more than were transported to Auschwitz. There were transports to Auschwitz
Theresienstadt and/or Bergen-Belsen on the same day.
Holocaust Believers have no explanation for this fact. Allegedly the "Final Solution" was in effect until...until...
well, the Believers have skated around that question too but clearly some sort of decision making process was going on. Unfortunately, the current laws in Europe prevent honest research on this interesting subject.
