Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber has drawn criticism after writing that he hoped Holocaust victim Anne Frank "would have been a Belieber".
The Facebook page for Anne Frank House states that Bieber visited on Friday "with his friends and guards" while his fans - known as "Beliebers" - waited outside to see him.
Bieber wrote in the museum's guestbook, "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a Belieber".
Anne died in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945 after she and her family were captured and deported during the Nazi occupation in World War II.
The Jewish teenager wrote a diary while she was in hiding in a small flat above a warehouse.
That diary was recovered and published after the war, and has become the most widely read document to emerge from the Holocaust.
His comments - seen by some as self-serving - have drawn criticism on Twitter:
But Anne Frank House spokeswoman Maatje Mostart told the Associated Press she didn't see anything offensive in his remarks.
