The Video-Diary of Anne Frank
The Anne Frank House of Amsterdamn just released the only known footage of Anne Frank in this short video where she looks wistfully after a couple walking down the street.
As we all know, Anne imagined a future when she would fall in love and become the greatest artist of all, a mother, creating a new generation.
The forces of hate destroyed this hope, ruined this young life and, forever, created a memory that tears us at all.
And finally I twist my heart round again, so that the bad is on the outside and the good is on the inside, and keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would so like to be, and could be, if there weren't any other people living in the world.
Of course, this being Artists 4 Israel, we must put a unique and urban spin on this story. Notice the below shirt from an interesting design collective out of Brooklyn called Death/Traitors
We applaud any program that transfers the important story of Anne Frank to a medium that can be understood by all.
A big "Nu, Nu" to Tyler from D/T on this design!
