Retired G-Man Launches Investigation to Identify Who Betrayed Anne Frank

A retired FBI agent has made it his mission to determine who notified the Nazis where Anne Frank was hiding during World War II.

Former FBI Agent Vince Pankoke has tapped a 19-member team that plans to use new investigative techniques that weren’t available 50 years ago, the Guardian reports. 

The team also has access to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, which collects archives and is supporting the investigation.

Pankoke also has received recently declassified documents that may help investigators get closer to solving the mystery.

Frank and her family were found hiding in a secret place above a canal-side warehouse.

Frank was taken to the Auschwitz concentration camp, and she was later shipped to Bergen-Belsen, where she died in 1945 at the age of 15 from typhus.

After the war, authorities never were able to identify who betrayed the family’s hiding spot.
