SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A new claim has surfaced that the Mormon church has posthumously baptized a Holocaust victim, this time Anne Frank.
The allegations come just a week after The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints apologized when it was brought to light that the parents of Holocaust survivor Simon Wiesenthal were posthumously baptized at temples in Arizona and Utah in late January.
Mormon researcher Helen Radkey, who revealed the Wiesenthal baptisms, says she found Frank's name in proxy baptism records dated Feb. 18, showing the ritual was performed at a Dominican Republic temple.
The Mormon church almost immediately issued a statement, though it didn't mention Frank by name. The church says it is committed to keeping Holocaust victims out of the proxy baptism process.
