Carol Berman, 96, shared a special photo of Margot Frank, the older sister of Anne Frank, with the Jewish Historical Society of Greater MetroWest. When Ms. Berman’s family and the Frank family were living in Frankfurt, all the girls would play together. Ms. Berman’s younger sister would play with Anne.
Ms. Berman told the JHS that just before the Frank family left for Amsterdam the two exchanged photos of each other. On the back of the photo, Margot wrote “Forever Remembering Your Friendship.” It is dated 1-3-40. Carol Berman’s family was lucky; they left for the United States in March of 1940, when she was 14.
