'Anne Frank has become immortal'

Eva Schloss is 90 years old. Her father and brother both died in Auschwitz concentration camp, but her mother survived and was later remarried to Otto Frank, Anne Frank’s father, after the war.

“Anne has become a symbol of the one-and-a-half million Jewish children who died” said Eva. “This will be the last generation of kids who will hear our stories in person.”

A new exhibition at St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art in Glasgow tells the story of Anne Frank.

Among the exhibits is a life-size replica of Anne’s bedroom in the secret annexe where she lived and wrote her diary from 6 July 1942 until 4 August 1944.

The exhibition runs until 30 June.

Eva spoke to John Beattie of BBC Scotland’s The Nine.
