Hmm, good point."In a country from which an estimated 108,000 Jews were deported — of whom only about 5,500 returned ..."
My guess would be a Dutchman.
During the Nazi occupation of over a dozen European nations it was quite ordinary, given the right circumstances, for typical people to participate in the extermination of Jews in return for an extra potato ration.
Not an urban legend at all.On a side note, while visiting Ground Zero recently, I was told by a friend who toured us and also works there that one of the trees by the reflecting pools was grown from an acorn, one of five found in Anne's pocket. The tree isn't marked so as to protect it. I didn't question him further, just assumed it's an urban legend as Anne wasn't famous when she died in Bergen-Belsen so who would look through her pockets and save any acorns found there?
