Hannah Pik-Goslar

Hannah 'Hanneli' Elisabeth Goslar (born 12 November 1928) is best known for her friendship with diarist Anne Frank. Both Hannah and Anne attended the Sixth Public Montessori School (now the Anne Frank School) in Amsterdam and then the Jewish Lyceum. Hanneli Elizabeth Pick-Goslar was born in Berlin, Germany on 12 November 1928, the eldest child of Hans Goslar and Ruth Judith Klee. Her father was deputy minister for domestic affairs in Germany until 1933 and her mother was a teacher. Both of her parents were observant Jews. Her mother died giving birth to the third child. The baby also died. Her father and maternal grandparents all died of a sickness before the liberation. In 1933, after the election of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party to the Reichstag and Hitler's appointment as Chancellor, Hans Goslar was forced to resign his governmental job. After an abortive attempt to move to England, where Hans Goslar could not find work that would allow him to stay home on the Sabbath, the Goslars moved to Amsterdam, Holland. Hannah attended the Sixth Public Montessori school in Amsterdam, where she became friends with Anne Frank.
