Google Doodle presents the heartfelt and sad hat to Anne Frank, whose book ‘The Diary Of A Young Girl’ was published that day. For those who did not know me, Frank was the victim of a genocide whose first account in his book of World War II became one of the most intimate portraits of the horrific atrocities that the Jews experienced during the genocide.
Frank wrote the diary at a young age, in secret, to avoid the pressure from Hitler. In the Google Doodle slide show, captions of his writings appear with images of his life before and after the war. With the slideshow Google Doodle marks the 75th anniversary of the publication of his diary.
Today’s Doodle is presented by Doodle Art Director Thoka Maer. Commenting on her thoughts while doing the slide show she said, “The tragedy of Anne’s story and those who experienced it is inexplicable and difficult to live with. To anyone. Violence, loss, and guilt are all around us. I knew I would have to spend a lot of time thinking about how to do justice in the depths of the crisis and the severity of the situation while realizing that not everyone is involved.
He also added that Anne was an incredible writer and was very observant of the young and wanted to make sure Doodle reflected that about her.
