Betrayed!

On 4 August 1944, everyone in the Secret Annex is arrested. Someone has betrayed them. They are deported first to the Westerbork transit camp, and then on to Auschwitz. Otto Frank is the only person from the Secret Annex to survive the camps. The others all die. The identity of their betrayer has never been established.

Anne writes:

Betrayed!

“If it's that bad in Holland, what must it be like in those faraway and uncivilized places where the Germans are sending them? We assume that most of them are being murdered. The English radio says they're being gassed. Perhaps that's the quickest way to die. I feel terrible.”

Im doing an essay on Miep Gies and this has been the best site to find information about both the helpers and the hidden.

In remembrance of all brave people who died in the horrible Concentration Camps! We will visit Auschwitz with our two teenagers. We'll never forget!

I still don't understand how a society can get so brainwashed that they turn a blind eye to extremists and army-officials carrying out these sort of actions. Did they just not KNOW what was happening in concentration camps? Or were they content so long as it wasn't affecting them? Scary.
