I did not know what to do today. Started ‘going over things’ sort of randomly. Then I read the old research papers again. The last one in 2016, that suggests that the Franks were possibly found by “coincidence”: the police raided the place for food stamps and accidentally found eight Jews in the annex etc.
We keep reminding each other regularly that we cannot dismiss this theory nor any of the other theories that have been presented until we review all of the facts. It could be a coincidence of course. But to be honest: We are all happy to look into the case all over again – as we will need to do with every theory. Will we ever be sure? (In my head, I hear this familiar bell ringing: If we ever can be sure. Of course, if we ever.…)
