I’m about to tell you probably the most convincing case of reincarnation you’ve ever heard.
This case is about Barbro Karlen, she was born May 1954, in Sweden. She became a prolific writer from the age of 12. Not only is Barbro an incredible writer, she believes that she is actually the reincarnation of Anne Frank.
This article is going to be much longer and more detailed than my previous ones. I have always felt such emotion, like most people when learning about The Holocaust, so I wanted to make sure I do it justice and with respect.
So for those of you that don’t know who Anne Frank is (firstly read a damn book), she is one of the most famous victims of The Holocaust, and her diary one of the most famous books in the world. Anne Frank died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany 1945 at the age of 15. In 1954, less than 10 years later, Barbro was born in Sweden.
If you have had the chance to read ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’ , you would know that she had a real gift of writing at such a young age and she really had a way of painting a picture of what she had to endure every day while she was in hiding.
At the age of 12, Barbro would publish her first book, it was a book of poetry which was hugely popular in Sweden, although this is not what she would be known for. Because although Barbro and Anne both shared a love and a gift of writing, they could’ve actually shared the exact same lives. Barbro may just be the reincarnation of Anne Frank.
Ever since Barbro was a little girl she often found herself dreaming of a different life, the dreams were so real to her that she felt like it really was her. She would suffer with these awful nightmares throughout her childhood.
When Barbro was just 2 years old she began telling her parents that she wasn’t Barbro, that she was in fact Anne and she didn’t understand why everyone was calling her Barbro. She insisted that her parents were not her real parents at all and that her real father would be along to collect her soon.
At that time, The Diary of Anne Frank had
been published in a few different languages but not Swedish. Meaning that there was no way that Barbro, especially at such a young age could’ve had any knowledge of Anne Frank.
At around 6 years old, Barbro’s parents started to think that something really wasn’t right with their daughter, they thought she may have been crazy! So they decided to take her to a psychiatrist. She had tried to tell so many people that she wasn’t who she was but nobody would believe her, so she didn’t open up to the psychiatrist about who she thought she really was. She never told them about the memories and nightmares she was having. So, Barbro was deemed a completely normal little girl with an over active imagination.
When Barbro was 8 years old, she was in school when her teacher started to talk about Anne Frank. Barbro was very confused, she couldn’t understand why her teacher was talking about her. Once Barbro realised that Anne Frank was in fact famous, she realised that it wasn’t a good idea to be claiming to be her.
Barbro’s dreams and memories continued, but where things take a real turn and where the validation truly comes in, is when Barbro was 10 years old and her parents took her to visit Anne Franks house in Amsterdam. The family were on a euro trip and wanted to soak in all the history while in Amsterdam.
At the age of 10 years old, Barbro told her parents that she knew exactly how to get to Anne’s house, so that’s what she did, without a map or guidance she led them to Anne Franks house. The minute she got there the home felt so familiar. She was standing in front of the house that she had been dreaming about since she was 2 years old.
Barbro right away noticed that they had changed the front steps, she told her parents that the steps were different. She was overloaded with emotions, this house held so many memories for her, yet this was her first time being there.
She was clammy and cold, her mother thought she was getting sick. While looking around Anne Franks house, it brought back so many memories that Barbro hadn’t even remembered before.
Barbro’s mother started to fact check everything that her daughter had been saying, and she finally started to believe her. Maybe her daughter wasn’t crazy after all. She embraced Barbro and told her that she wasn’t alone anymore, that she finally understood.
This was a pivotal moment for Barbro, because for so long she felt like she had no validation that she was in fact Anne Frank. She had always been told that she was wrong, so for her mother to finally believe her was the greatest thing she could’ve asked for.
Where things get even more chilling, and when I read this I truly had goosebumps all over my body – around the age of 15, Barbro’s memories started to fade. She still remembered everything she knew from her childhood, buy no new memories were coming in.
Anne Frank died at the age of 15, so was that the reason that Barbro’s memories stopped? Because Anne Frank had no new memories after the age of 15?
I know that was much longer than usual, but I hope you enjoyed it all the same. The Holocaust is something that we should never ever stop talking about, we can’t let it be lost in history, we owe it to the victims to keep telling their story.
Stay home and stay safe guys 🌹
