Animation of Anne Frank, the Graphic Biography
This animation shows extracts from Anne Frank: The Anne Frank House Authorized Graphic Biography (2010) by Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón. The biography tells the story of Anne Frank’s life, and ends with the return of Otto Frank — who was the only one of the eight people in hiding in the secret annex to survive the Holocaust — and the publication of Anne’s diary and the opening of the Anne Frank House.
The biography will be published at the beginning of July in the Netherlands, and later this year in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
You can hear more about upcoming summer reading at 11am on Friday’s All Sides Weekend, featuring WOSU FM Classical Music Host Christopher Purdy, with WOSU book critic Kassie Rose, book critic Bill Eichenberger, and Capital University English Professor and poet Kevin Griffith.
