Edith Frank

In her book ‘Anne Frank Remembered’, Miep Gies writes about Edith Frank in the secret annexe:

‘What troubled her [Edith Frank], but which she didn’t dare to talk about if the others were there, was that she felt crushed by a deep despair. While the others counted the days until the Allies came and imagined what they would do when the war was over, Mrs Frank admitted that, to her great shame, she had the feeling that it would never end.’
