I've compared him to Hitler. I even heard that he studied Hitler's speeches and things like that, so he obviously admired Hitler and just copied him with his anti-Semitism. — Eva Schloss, 91-year-old stepsister of Anne Frank

Trump 'obviously admired Hitler,' says Anne Frank's stepsister, referring to claims he studied his speeches
  • Former President Donald Trump "obviously admired Hitler," Anne Frank's stepsister Eva Schloss told the Daily Beast.
  • "I even heard that he studied Hitler's speeches and things like that, so he obviously admired Hitler and just copied him with his anti-Semitism."
  • Trump's former wife Ivanka once reportedly claimed that Trump kept a book of Hitler's speeches near his bed.
  • "If, I had these speeches, and I am not saying that I do, I would never read them," Trump said at the time.
The 91-year-old stepsister of Anne Frank claimed in an interview this week that former President Donald Trump "obviously admired Hitler," referring to a claim by his former wife that he kept copies of his speeches at home.

Eva Schloss, co-founder of The Anne Frank Trust UK, told the Daily Beast in an interview where she discussed surviving the Holocaust and her opinions of Donald Trump that the former president was "a racist."

Schloss said: "There was a noticeable uptick in anti-Semitic hate crimes during the Trump administration. And there was a president in Trump who described neo-Nazis chanting "Jews will not replace us" as "very fine people."

She went onto say: "Trump wasn't just against the Jews. He was against the Mexicans, and many others. He was a racist. Full-stop, he was a racist."

"I've compared him to Hitler. I even heard that he studied Hitler's speeches and things like that, so he obviously admired Hitler and just copied him with his anti-Semitism."

... Jews in the United States in 2019 suffered the largest number of anti-Semitic incidents since the Anti-Defamation League started recording them 40 years previously, the watchdog reported last year, per Reuters.


The president was repeatedly criticized during his presidency for failing to adequately condemn far-right violence in the United States. He refused explicitly to condemn the far-right Proud Boys organization during a 2020 presidential debate and instead told the group to "stand back and stand by!"

In one of the most notorious episodes of his presidency, he blamed "many sides" for neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville in August 2017 and said there were "very fine people" on "both sides."

Trump subsequently claimed that his remarks had been embellished by opponents.
