The Betrayal | Chris Stapleton:
The Betrayal – 60 MINUTES reveals new findings from an unprecedented investigation into the seven-decade-old mystery of how the Nazis discovered Anne Frank, her family, and four others hiding in an Amsterdam annex. Otto Frank, Anne’s father, the only family member to survive the Holocaust, returned from Auschwitz with a question: Who betrayed their hiding place to the Nazis? Two inquiries by the Dutch police and decades of research have resulted in theories but no definitive answers. In 2016 a team of investigators and researchers, led by former FBI agent Vince Pankoke, launched a new effort to crack this cold case using modern investigative techniques and technology. Jon Wertheim speaks with Pankoke and others on the team about their groundbreaking approach to this stubborn question, revealing their prime suspect. This is a two-part report.
