Van Klein tot Groots – Anne Frank – Dutch
Merk: De Vier Windstreken
Little people, BIG DREAMS.
(Frankfurt, 12 June 1929 - Bergen-Belsen, February 1945).
Anne Frank was a German girl of Jewish descent who went into hiding during the Second World War for fear of the Nazis. She wrote down her experiences in a diary, until after two years she was discovered and taken to a concentration camp. She died there, just a few weeks before the end of the war. Her diary has been translated into more than 70 languages and gives a voice to more than one million children who died during the Holocaust.
The series 'Van Klein tot Groots' focuses on women who had a dream as a little girl and eventually saw that dream come true. This part is about Anne Frank who wanted to become a writer and eventually became world famous through her diary. It is striking that the illustrations in this part are almost entirely black and white; it is significant that only the diary is shown in color, in a red-brown spot color. The drawings sometimes look somewhat old-fashioned, but the drawing style fits well with the subject and increases the impact of the story. It is therefore possible that something cream-colored paper was chosen. The appealing illustrations on double pages contain short texts of three to four short sentences in which the story of Anne Frank is told globally.
