Summary"In the autumn of 1987, a small bundle containing photographs and newspaper clippings, which used to belong to Charlotte Kaletta, was found by an employee of the Anne Frank Foundation on the Amsterdam flea market. This sensational discovery led her to another set of photographs and letters among Kaletta’s belongings. Charlotte Kaletta had been the lover of Fritz Pfeffer, a German born Jewish dentist, who under the name of ‘Dussel’... prominently appears in the diary of Anne Frank... This material, including Pfeffer’s last letter to Kaletta dated November 15, 1942, came into the hands of the well-known Dutch historian Nanda van der Zee. With the help of Pfeffer’s son, who gave her a wealth of unpublished photographs, as well as friends and acquaintances of Kaletta and Pfeffer from Germany, Holland, Belgium and South Africa and the Pfeffer archives of the Anne Frank Foundation, she re-created the story of his life." —Publisher
