Johannes Kleiman

Johannes Kleiman said in a radio interview after the war:

"A few months after the people went into hiding, we refurbished the Secret Annex to resemble a home, where they could live reasonably well. I had no idea that Anne wrote so much in her diary, even about us, the helpers. Anne was thirteen when she came here and fifteen when they took her away. In the meantime she’d become a young woman."
