Anne Frank’s stepsister says Trump ‘is acting like another Hitler’

Eva Schloss, 86, is a survivor of Auschwitz and the stepsister of Anne Frank. Both Frank and Schloss were Jewish refugees in Amsterdam together and the pair played together as children until their families were forced into hiding in 1942. She compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler in an op-ed in Newsweek.

“If Donald Trump become [sic] the next president of the U.S. it would be a complete disaster. I think he is acting like another Hitler by inciting racism,” she wrote.

She also condemned the resistance some countries have put up against accepting refugees from Syria, comparing it to the obstacles Jews encountered when trying to escape the Holocaust.

“I am very upset that today again so many countries are closing their borders. Fewer people would have died in the Holocaust if the world had accepted more Jewish refugees,” she wrote.
