75th Anniversary – Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Adaptation

By Steph Hocutt | June 15 2022 | GeneralGraphic Novels

On June 25, 1947, the first edition of Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl was published. Anne’s diary had been found after she died of typhus in 1945 in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, and given to her father, Otto Frank, the only known surviving member of her family. Since its original publication, the Diary has been published in more than 70 languages, taught to children across the globe, banned, championed, adapted for the theater and the silver screen, and, of course, turned into a graphic novel.

In Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Adaptation, Ari Folman and David Polonsky—the Academy Award–nominated duo that created Waltz with Bashir—bring Anne’s indelible story to a new audience of readers young and old. Authorized by the Anne Frank Foundation in Basel, this is the first graphic novel edition of the Diary, quoting extensively from the original text while employing imaginative and stunning illustrations to interpret and add layers of visual meaning to this timeless classic.

As this June marks the 75th anniversary of the original publication of the Diary, it’s the perfect time to dive into the graphic adaptation and engage with the remarkable text in a whole new way. Keep scrolling to sneak a peek at the incredible artwork featured within.
