(Newser) – A postcard sent by Nazi victim Anne Frank to one of her best friends has been found in a Dutch antique shop, the BBC reports. The card, sent by the 8-year-old Anne in 1937, shows a Christmas bell in a snowy field and wishes her friend good luck for the New Year. Amsterdam's Anne Frank museum believes the card is authentic.

"We hope we can get it for our collection," said a museum spokeswoman. The museum is based in the house where the famous young Jewish diarist and her family hid from the Nazis for years. They were eventually betrayed and Anne died in a German concentration camp at the age of 15.
