The Anne Frank Foundation has been innovating new ways of reaching more readers and in educating people across the world. This year, the foundation approached illustrator David Polonsky and screenwriter Ari Folman to work on the graphic novel version of Anne’s diary. The pair has already created another masterwork with their renowned animated film Waltz With Bashir, which had been Oscar-nominated. Their take on the illustrations does not shy away from Anne’s harsh reality, while still representing the young girl’s innocent attitude towards her situation.
The graphic novel, Anne Frank’s Diary, has been out in Hebrew and several other European languages for a year now. However, the English version has just been released, so be sure to get your copy!
