Two sisters, the younger one lively,outgoing and bubbly, the older one a bit more reserved and shy.
Two sisters who were very different and yet in many ways the same,
On October 30, 1944, they both boarded a train. Not to go a big city to go for a shopping spree or to the cinema, like so many teenage girls would have done because it is one of the most normal things for young girls to do.
Nor did they go on a school trip or a holiday.
You see it was not that kind of train where you could sit down relax and enjoy the scenery,slowly passing by your window.
The train these girls were pushed in to was not fit for human beings, but they were not seen as human beings. They were seen as a disease, a plague of some sorts. Vermin and subhumans they were called.
The train left Auschwitz and headed for Bergen Belsen, a journey from one hell to another.
The two girls were Anne and Margot Frank.The dates of their deaths is not even exactly known, either February or March 1945. All that is certain they died in Bergen Belsen just a few weeks before it was liberated.
