A previously unseen autographed poem written by Anne Frank for the sister of her closest friend has emerged over 70 years later.<br />
<br />
The eight-line poem was written by Anne Frank in the friendship book of Christiane 'Cricri' Van Maarsen in Amsterdam on March 28, 1942, four months before the Jewish schoolgirl went into hiding from the Nazis.<br />
<br />
Cricri, who died 10 years ago, was the older sister of Jacqueline Van Maarsen, Anne Frank's closest school friend. <br />
<br />
Now, Jacqueline has decided to put the poem, written by Anne Frank when she was 12 years-old, up for auction. It is expected to fetch 50,000 euros (approximately £42,800).
