The Dutch publisher of a recent book on Anne Frank's betrayal has extended its pause on further copies to a total halt.
Dutch News reports that Ambo Anthos apologized in both English and Dutch in its announcement that The Betrayal of Anne Frank by Rosemary Sullivan will, effectively immediately, no longer be available.
Since the book's January release, scholars have criticized its conclusion and its methodology.
Within a month, Ambo Anthos had announced it would pause any further printings.
And on Tuesday night in Amsterdam, a group of prominent historians held a public event — in English — to refute the book's claim that a Jewish notary had revealed the secret hiding place of the Frank family, along with other Jewish people.
The scholars, along with a granddaughter of that man, have called on HarperCollins to end global printing of The Betrayal of Anne Frank; Dutch News didn't have a response from the US publisher.
