“The diary of Anne Frank” turned into comics
A graphic novel based on “the Diary of Anne Frank” has caused a controversial reaction in the society. The creators of the comic say they want to adapt the famous book for the new generations.
“We have a lot in common. I’m a bookworm, I love books,” says 14-year-old India, wrapped in the maroon hood in the style of Harry Potter.
Anne Frank helped her, like many readers worldwide to understand the incomprehensible and distant history page.
India is one of the group of students gathered near the warehouse on the canal in Amsterdam where Anne’s father had once sold pectin.
They came there to learn more about the life of the young writer during the Second world war.
Anne Frank was 15 years old when she died. She was a budding author and one of the more than one million Jewish children who perished during the Holocaust.
Today, her diary (which she called kitty) is one of the most widely read books in the world. Her teenage prose was the basis for a Hollywood script, Broadway productions and other works.
Now her diary turned into a comic book, a collection of which was produced by the creators of the famous cartoon “Waltz with Bashir”. Expected soon and the film based on this unusual adaptation.
In the graphic novel are excerpts from the diary and letters of Anne Frank, where she talks about how she and her family hid from the Nazis after her sister tried to take to a labor camp.
They were able to hide in the silence and darkness of their shelter for almost two years, after which they were discovered by the Nazis.
They took a school backpack Anna, to collect there money and valuables found in the homes of Jewish families, a red diary was later found in the stash house.
The author of the cartoon adaptation of Ari Folman says his goal is to make the legacy of Anna as more relevant.
