Re: Who Betrayed Anne Frank and Her Family? #holocaust

The search results were not dispositive of the question. It was narrowed down but not proven. The person they fingered for disclosing the name was financially well off and had connections. A program like this should not be viewed as speaking for the dead. Some people are strong. Others are weak. We should not judge people for doing something to stay alive.  We have no idea how we would react in their shoes.

In the camps, some women slept with Nazis to stay alive. Just that act alone was enough for other Jewish women to treat these women like dirt. It is very easy to judge in a 2 dimensional world. Real life is much more complex. How far would you go to save yourself or a loved one?
