Anne Frank's cousin Buddy Elias dies at 89
Bernhard "Buddy" Elias, the first cousin and last close relative of teenage Holocaust diarist Anne Frank, has died at age 89.

 

The Anne Frank Fonds said Wednesday that Elias died peacefully Monday at his home in Basel, Switzerland, surrounded by his family.  The son of Anne's aunt, Elias presided over the Basel-based Anne Frank Fonds, which holds the rights to her diary. Elias was born in 1925 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany and moved to Basel six years later when his father took over the Swiss branch of a German company.
