The Diary of Anne Frank released (Joint with Orphan Fansubs)!
This project is done in conjunction with Orphan Fansubs, whose founder contacted me several months ago about this project. I've been slowly working on it when I had the spare time, and we finally got it ready today. This was one of the projects from C1 Anime that never got done; we would like to thank them as well.
This is the anime adaptation of the story of Anne Frank. Her diary, written during World War II, cover the time when she and her family (and several other people as well) were hiding in secret rooms in a building in Amsterdam in order to evade Nazi capture. Excerpts from her diary were published after the war, and it remains a valuable first-hand account of what transpired in Nazi-occupied countries during the war. It was very unfortunate that they were not able to evade capture.
The building and secret rooms that they were in still exists today, and it is now a museum.
Her story is a part of the curriculum of many schools here in the United States, and it is difficult topic to approach even today without stirring up emotions.
