The Last 7 Months of Anne Frank
Ms. Brandes-Brilleslipper writes that it was the closeness of Anne and Margot that attracted her to the Frank girls. At Bergen-Belsen during the night there was a terribal storm which blew down the temporary tent they were housed in. The were wet and debilitated. "At a certain moment in the final days Anne stood in front of me wrapped in a blanket. She did not have any more tears. She told me she has such a horror of lice that she had thrown her clothes away. It was the middle of winter."
Anne had typhus. She stayed on her feet until Margot died. Only then did she give in to her illness. First, Margot fell out of bed onto a stone floor. Anne died a day later.
Another who knew her writes, "It was clear that Anne had typhus. Typhus was the hallmark of Bergen-Belsen. They had hollowed out faces, skin over bone. They were terribly cold. The Frank girls had the least desirable place in the barracks near the door. You heard them screaming, 'Close the door.' The voices became weaker each day."
