Annelies Marie (Anne) Frank, a German-born Jew who perished in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, was allegedly baptized posthumously by Mormons on Saturday, the Huffington Post reported Tuesday.
According to the report, the baptism was conducted using a proxy, by a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Dominican Republic.
Whistle blower Helen Radkey, a former member of the church, told the Huffington Post that she discovered Frank’s name on a database open only to Mormons, where the Jewish girl who died at age 15 was listed as “Completed” beside categories labeled “Baptism” and “Confirmation” with the date February 18, 2012. A screen shot of the alleged database sent by Radkey is linked to the Huffington Post report.
The Huffington Post described Radkey as “a Salt Lake City researcher who investigates such incidents, which violate a 2010 pact between the Mormon Church and Jewish leaders.”
