Guest Biography


A Shared History
Anne Frank died in 1945, and less than 9 years later, she was reborn as Barbro Karlén.

An accomplished writer and considered a child prodigy in her home country of Sweden, Barbro Karlén had 11 books published by the time she was 16 years old. As a young child, Barbro began having memories of a past life, which lead her to believe that her name was Anne Frank. Her Christian parents thought the details she shared were simply fantasies, and did not take her seriously.

Barbro’s parents had never heard of The Diary, OR Anne Frank at that time.

Despite this fact, Barbro, through her memory alone, led her parents to the preserved hiding place of Anne and her family. She pointed out landmarks and features of the house, which the curator confirmed, including a blank wall on which photographs were missing.

To date, Barbro is considered to the be the only, and true reincarnate of Anne Frank.
