I watched the last episode of the BBC's series about Anne Frank tonight, a series that has been on TV every night this week. It was such a brilliant production and should open the Anne Frank story up to an entirely new generation of people.
Along with the diary writing, it's the photographs of Anne that help bring her story to life. We can see the youth and character behind the writing. The images are just simple family photographs, taken without any knowledge of Anne's future as an author, but even so, the images give a face to the writer whose work resonates with all ages. It's such a young face too.
I rather like the image above. It looks like one of those author photographs that are usually placed on the back or inside of book jackets. I imagine that Anne would have loved that.
