Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Anne Frank’s Stepsister Shares Memories from Auschwitz-Birkenau, How Trump Reminds Her of Hitler in Blunt Interview”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Eva Schloss has seen a lot in her 91 years, surviving the Holocaust but losing many family members, now awaiting the end of the pandemic at her home in London, and she shared her thoughts in a blunt and unfiltered interview with The Daily Beast.

Schloss’ family fled Vienna, Austria when the Nazis took control and eventually ended up in Amsterdam and befriended the family of Anne Frank, who would become posthumously famous for her heartfelt diary written during the war.

Both families went into hiding, were betrayed to the Nazis, and sent to concentration camps. Only Schloss and her mother survived from their family; Otto Frank was the only one from his family left. Schloss’ mother married Otto Frank in 1953 and she and her daughter would go on to assist him with the creation and management of the Anne Frank Foundation. Schloss has continued this work, traveling around the world to give educational speeches and support the Foundation’s mission.

The Daily Beast’s Marlow Stern talked with Schloss to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day. A selection of quotes:

Trump wasn’t just against the Jews—he was against the Mexicans, and many others. He was a racist. Full-stop, he was a racist. His son-in-law is a Jew, and his daughter converted to Judaism. You know, he’s said so many silly things. I’ve compared him to Hitler. I even heard that he studied Hitler’s speeches and things like that, so he obviously admired Hitler and just copied him with his anti-Semitism. The Muslims are hated as well. This is what’s so wrong in our society—white supremacy. We should all treat each other as equal. We’re just one human race—different colors, different religions, different opinions, but all human beings who should have the same opportunities and should be measured equally.
