Thus : lien brilleslijper lied about the mass grave for february or march 1945 at belsen . IF anne and margot really died there, which I deem plausible but not conclusively proven , their corpses were burned either in the crematorium or on one of those pyres . Or were left lying around if they died shortly before liberation as janny stated . You don´t dig mass graves in a typhus- infested , overcrowded camp unless you want to commit collective suicide. Lien lied after watching british propaganda films shot after april 15, 1945, showing british soldiers carrying corpses in blankets to mass graves freshly dug by them :
Watch 0´51´´ ff. : there you have the corpse-in-blanket scene and mass grave scene that lien plagiarized and credited to herself and her sister for a time - february/march 1945 - when there were no mass graves in belsen at all . Watch in the film , how the brits who dispose of the dead in the mass graves are wearing special gloves and coveralls , so as not to touch the typhus-infected corpses and avoid contagion . Nobody would have touched those corpses with bare hands as lien lies - and she and janny were nurses and knew the risk . Watch the sign on the mass grave at
6´23´´ : it reads april 1945, in english . Wheras if both lien and janny were really sick with typhus themselves , as janny witnessed , they would have been too weak to carry out such a task . And again, they were nurses not leichenkommando, disposing of bodies was none of their business .
For a partially different , but sourceless and unscientific reconstruction , read this :
The famous mass graves one sees in post-liberation british propaganda films, were dug by german POWs forced by the brits to do so, in order to show the world a few cadavers passed off as murdered by the germans and stir antigerman sentiment in the western masses . Mass deaths had continued at belsen after liberation , and it was the brits who had those mass graves dug to deal with all the bodies . At the same time, the camp´s evacuation and setting the barracks ablaze had begun . Again : the mass graves at belsen post-date, do not pre-date april 15, 1945 and anne´s death . IF anne died there in february or march , 1945, she was cremated for reasons of hygiene . And maybe otto knew about this and maybe that is why he never visited belsen to pay hommage to his daughters : for they were not there any more . They had long since turned into ash in the wind .
But if lien lied about the mass-grave burial , or about her actually witnessing anne´s death etc . - how can we rule out that both sisters lied about the whole affair ? How can we mathematically rule out anne wasn´t even ever there to begin with - or that she may be still alive ?
I must leave this Q in abeyance . I do incline to think that anne really met her sorry end in belsen at age 15 . But I am in no position to mathematically prove nor disprove it .
It would make no sense to unbury those dead in the mass graves in search for anne´s remains - except of course to identify all other victims and give them a worthy tomb and count them . Annelies marie frank lies not in the mass graves of bergen belsen .
CHAPTER 33 : BACK TO AUSCHWITZ
Again : we have not a single official record attesting to anne frank´s presence and death at belsen between early november 1944 and february or march 1945. Nothing for her, nothing for margot , nothing for auguste van pels who was reportedly transferred from auschwitz to belsen nov. 26, 1944 , and then from belsen to raguhn on february 6, 1945 (AFH 210) or on february 7 according
This last link states as its source : transport list , bergen-belsen to raguhn , international tracing service , bad arolsen , germany. But I am denied access to this list - or any other bad arolsen document for that matter.
The rest of our reports about the fate of anne , margot and auguste is based solely on hearsay from alleged witnesses so prone to lying wholly or in part as we proved above. There is indeed another written record for auguste van pels, written by hand on the back of her registration card with the westerbork registry office (AFH 211, picture 2):
According to AFH 210, it was a red cross staff who wrote by hand on the back of this card after the war, in which camps auguste had been : Q is : how did he know ? Or who told him ? Anyway, according to what he wrote here, she was transferred from auschwitz to belsen nov. 26, 1944 , and once there, she was given prisoner number 7306. Again : how come this red cross staff knew exactly auguste´s belsen number, while nobody so far, for nearly 74 years, has been able to come up with either anne´s or margot´s ? Again and again : we know, from his entschädigungsakte, werner goldschmidt´s belsen prisoner number : 7043 (M 407) . We know auguste´s : 7306. How did the red cross track down these prisoner numbers of dead or missing people ? Why were they unable to trace anne´s and margot ´s ?
Sure enough, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence : but - it isn´t evidence of presence either ! I am only trying my hardest to be scientific here : while I deem anne´s typhus death at belsen most likely, I am unable to prove or disprove it in the absence of any independent confirmation whatsoever . The oral witness of a number of jewish women , which I have partly proven to be a lie, is not enough to gain definitive and absolute certainty. The fact that other belsen deaths such as goldschmidt´s or Demoustier´s or Schlombach´s, or others´ belsen presence such as auguste van pels´s, are so well documented , or at least reported to be so, while anne´s isn´t in the least , cannot help but leave room for doubt : did anne frank fake her death ?
