Anne Frank was a German-born Jewish lady who wrote a famous diary about her experiences in hiding during World War 2. She hid for two years in the German-occupied Netherlands from the Nazi’s. She tragically was captured and died in Bergen-Belson concentration camp before the end of the war.

So where did she go? Many would say that in the Christian worldview, she would be sent straight to hell and God would torture her for eternity.

That is not the case though, because there is a common misconception that God sends people to Hell, but the truth is that we send ourselves to Hell.

In the afterlife, we will be either with God, or separated from God. Hell is a necessary alternative, separation from God.

So where is Anne Frank? I’m not sure, and the only person that truly knows is God, because God knows her heart.

The Bible is clear that God is just. Take Job 34:12:

Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the almighty pervert justice

Job 34:12

CS Lewis also does a great job in talking about who goes to Heaven and who goes to Hell.

“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, in the end, “Thy will be done.” All that are in Hell, choose it. Without that self-choice, there could be no Hell. No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek to find. Those who knock it is opened.”

CS Lewis

Our God is a God of love, and he loves Anne enough to bring her with him for eternity if she wished, but loved her enough to respect her wishes if she decided she didn’t want to follow God.
