Anne Frank and Family: The Photographs of Otto Frank
Just like in any average family, the photo album of the Frank family also begins with the birth of the first child. As an amateur photographer, Otto Frank has a single theme: the life & times of his daughters Anne and Margot.
Nothing we see in Otto Frank’s photos reveals the horrors that Anne and her family will later have to endure. What we now know about the fate of Anne Frank has an effect on how her book Anne Frank, The diary of a Young Girl is perceived. Equally so, it is now impossible to view the photos that portray her life with an impartial eye.
