Since its publication in 1947, The Diary of Anne Frank has been adapted into many different media and has been the inspiration for numerous creative and literary adaptations. Two official and authorized graphic novels about Anne Frank have been published alongside the rise in interest in graphic novels. Ernie Colon and Sid Jacobson’s graphic novel is a biography of Anne’s life and legacy, whereas Ari Folman and David Polonsky’s graphic novel is a literary adaptation of Anne’s diary. In this article, I argue that competing organizations and individual interpretations of Anne’s place in history result in divergent interpretations of Anne Frank’s life in two recent Anne Frank-themed graphic novels. Seventy years after Anne’s death, she remains as elusive and complex a figure, just as she was with the publication of the original diary by her father upon its discovery.
