A poem by Dutch schoolgirl Anne Frank written shortly before her family went into hiding from the Nazis has sold at auction for 148,000 dollars, well over the estimate.
Anne sent the eight-line verse to a friend in 1942.
Anne is best remembered for her diaries of life as a German-born Jew in occupied Amsterdam in World War Two.
The poem was signed and dated 28th March 1942, which was less than four months before the Frank family moved into a secret apartment to hide from German forces.
