Watch Anne Frank Experience All the Years Denied to Her

For Harry Turtledove’s alternate history story, “The Eighth-Grade History Class Visits the Hebrew Home for the Aging,” artist Robert Hunt was tasked with creating a portrait of Anne Frank as an old woman. The story itself speculates on what may have happened if Frank was never killed by the Nazis and went on to live a very ordinary life after World War II.

Usually art commissioned for Tor.com stories is a still image, but after completing this assignment Hunt went a step further and created this deceptively simple, haunting, and surprisingly touching time-lapse of one little girl getting to live to an old age. Watch it above.

Saddly this article spoils the reveal of the story.
