Name of a Jewish notary a Cold case team led by former FBI agent The main suspect in the betrayal of Anne Frank and his family by the Nazis.
Arnold van den Berg, who died in 1950, was indicted on the basis of six years of research and anonymous reference received by Ann’s father, Otto Frank, after returning to Amsterdam at the end of the war.
The memorandum states that von den Berg, a member of the Jewish Council, provided the German organization for establishing Jews, the hideout of the Frank family, and other addresses used by the occult.
He was motivated by fear of his life and his family, which is recommended in one CBS Documentary Rosemary Sullivan’s book, The Trial of Frank, is based on research compiled by retired FBI detective Vince Bangkok and his team.
Van der Berg initially classified himself as a non-Jew, but Bancock learned that he had been republished as a Jew due to a business dispute.
Van den Berg is said to have been a notary public in the forced sale of works of art to prominent Nazis. Herman Goring, Used the addresses of hidden places as a form of life insurance for his family. He and his daughter were not deported to Nazi camps.
Anne Frank She had been hiding for two years on August 4, 1944, in a hidden link above a canal warehouse in the Jordan area of Amsterdam.
The young diary was sent to the Westerborg Traffic Camp and to the Auschwitz concentration camp, where he died of typhus in February 1945 at the age of 15, before finally ending up in Bergen-Belsen. His published diary covers the latent period between 1942 and August 1, 1944, his last entry.
Despite ongoing investigations, the mystery of who led the Nazis to the merger remains unresolved. Otto Frank, who died in 1980, was thought to have strong suspicions about the man’s identity, but he never made it public.
Many years after the war, he told journalist Friso Endt that the family had been betrayed by someone from the Jewish community. During a lecture in the United States in 1994, Miep Gies, one of those who helped reunite the family, discovered that by 1960, the traitor had slipped to his death.
In 1947 and 1963 there were two police investigations into the circumstances surrounding Franks’ betrayal. Arendt von Heldon, the son of the detective who led the second investigation, handed the cold case investigators a typed copy of the anonymous note.
The author of the new book, Sullivan, said: “Vandenberg was a well-known notary, one of the six Jewish notaries in Amsterdam at the time, and a notary public in the Netherlands. When they run away Germany.
“The anonymous note does not identify Otto Frank. It read, ‘Your address has been betrayed.’ So, what really happened was that van den Berg was able to obtain many addresses of the Jews who had disappeared. There is no guarantee that those unnamed addresses and Jews are still hidden in those addresses. If you want, he gave to save his skin, but also to save himself and his family. Personally, I think he’s a sad person.
