FILE - In this March 12, 2010 file photo Berthe Meijer is seen during an interview with the Associated Press at her home in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Dutch Jewish author Berthe Meijer, whose life intersected tangentially with that of Anne Frank, has died. She was 74. Her husband, Gary Goldschneider, said Wednesday, July 11, 2012 that Meijer died of cancer on July 10. Meijer grew up on the same Amsterdam street where Frank attended a Montessori school. They were imprisoned in Bergen-Belsen at the same time, though Meijer was years younger. In 2010, Meijer published a memoir titled “Life After Anne Frank,” describing her post-war fortunes as perhaps resembling what might have happened to Frank, had she lived.
