Arson Destroys Anne Frank’s Camp Barracks

The barracks in the Dutch transition camp Westerbork where Anne Frank worked in 1944 has been destroyed, probably by arson. The barracks, which had been sold to a farmer several decades ago and stood in the town of Veendam, was to have been moved back to the memorial site in the camp in the near future. The Frank family was deported from Westerbork to the East. Anne Frank died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
