Justin Bieber visits Anne Frank museum, says he hoped Holocaust victim ‘would have been a Belieber’ if she lived
Justin Bieber has visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, and the museum says the Canadian pop star wrote in the guestbook that he hoped Frank “would have been a Belieber” if she had lived.
Museum spokeswoman Maatje Mostart confirmed Sunday that Bieber visited Friday evening.
“Belieber” is what Bieber fans call themselves. Anne Frank was a Jewish teenager who hid with her family in a small apartment above a warehouse during the Nazi occupation of World War II. Her family was caught and deported, and Anne died in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945.
The diary she kept in hiding was recovered and published after the war, and has become the most widely read document to emerge from the Holocaust. (Walter Bieri/The Associated Press; NIGEL TREBLIN/AFP/Getty Images)
