Relative of Anne Frank defends Justin Bieber

Eva Schloss says there is a good chance her relative would be a 'Belieber'

Anne Frank’s step-sister has defended Justin Bieber and claimed that her relative most probably would have been a fan of his music

Bieber sparked controversy earlier this week by writing a bizarre message in the Anne Frank House guestbook in Amsterdam while visiting during his European tour. The teen singer, who played a concert at nearby Arnhem on April 13, took time out to visit the museum and wrote that he hoped Anne Frank would have been a fan of his music.

Staff at the museum wrote on their Facebook page: “Yesterday night Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House, together with his friends and guards. Fans were waiting outside to see a glimpse of him. He stayed more than an hour in the museum. In our guestbook he wrote: ‘Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a Belieber’.”

However, speaking to The Sun, Eva Schloss has said that she thinks Frank would have been a ‘Belieber’ as she was a young girl and a music fan. “She probably would have been a fan. Why not?” she said. “He’s a young man and she was a young girl, and she liked film stars and music.”
