  3. Hannah Pik-Goslar:

    I was shivering in darkness when I suddenly heard a voice; 'Lies, Lies where are you?' It was Anne, and I ran in the direction of the voice, and then I saw her beyond the barbed wire. She was in rags. I saw her emaciated, sunken face in the darkness. Her eyes were very large. We cried and cried, for now there was only the barbed wire between us, nothing more. And no longer any difference in our fates.

  5. Rachel van Amerongen-Frankfoorder:

    I saw Anne and her sister Margot again in the barracks. Her parents weren't there. The Frank girls were almost unrecognizable since their hair had been cut off. They were much balder then we were; how that could be I don't know. And they were cold, just like the rest of us. (...) The Frank girls were so emaciated. They looked terrible. They had their little squabbles, caused by their illness, because it was clear that they had typhus. You could tell even if you had never had anything to do with that before. Typhus was the hallmark of Bergen-Belsen. They had those hollowed-out faces, skin over bone. They were terribly cold. They had the least desirable places in the barracks, below, near the door, which was constantly opened and closed. You heard them constantly screaming, "Close the door, close the door," and the voices became weaker every day. You could really see both of them dying, as well as others.
