Who is Ietje Swillems?

Rie "Ietje" Swillens was another good friend of Anne's all the way through Montessori school. Ietje was the girl that Anne breathlessly shared the news with concerning one of her uncles who had been arrested by the Nazis and sent to labor camp (he later was released and emigrated to the United States). Being Christian, Ietje's family was able to live out the war in Amsterdam. She became a teacher in later years, and today lives in Amstelveen, outside of Amsterdam. She is the girl second from right in the "tenth birthday" picture.
