Tribute to Anne Frank (In spite of everything...)
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Gera! by Kyoko Maruoka
Anne Frank has just turned 13 when she receives her diary, and immediately begins writing. She and her family will live in hiding for 2 years, from 1942 to 1944, fleeing persecution of Jews by the Nazis.
The cross stitch design, a tribute to Anne Frank, includes a quote from her diary:
"In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart"
Against all odds, the young girl still strongly believes in humanity, a hope that is her only defense against horror. Anne dies a few months later in a concentration camp.
The cross stitch piece is inspired by the room where Anne Frank lives hidden in Amsterdam. The roof recalls the tartan motif of the diary in which she wrote. The trees are the roadside chestnut trees that she could see from the hideout. Contrasting motifs of war and peace are evocative of Anne Frank's hope in humanity in spite of the horror surrounding her.
