Back in the Secret Annex alone by Livadialilacs Back in the Secret Annex alone by Livadialilacs
I remember seeing this during in a photography class last winter when we are learning about environmental portraits and I have always wanted to colour it since I follow Anne Frank's story. This picture is just touching and heartbreaking because well, you know why. Since this was taken about 16 years after Anne, Margot and their mother were murdered at the Nazi Concentration camps, I couldn't help but wonder what would have happened to Anne and Margot if they had survived and being with their father here. Perhaps they had already married and have small children? Otto never had real grandchildren as Anne and Margot died aged just 16 and 19.

Originally black and white picture coloured and edited by me.

Courage is fear that has said its prayers.
One must have courage when they meet Death.
