Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and Anne Frank

were born in the same year.

This gave me a jolt. I had never thought about the two of them together. Each is firmly entrenched in much different eras.

Anne Frank is the forever young victim of the Holocaust. Hers is a story set in WWII and before. MLK Jr is known for his work against segregation and other vile laws. His background time was post-WWII.

They seem to be from two different planets.

Video Featuring Martin Luther King Jr., Anne Frank Imagines World if They Had Lived

A lovely, moving video produced by the Anti-Defamation League imagines what the world would be like if a series of human rights leaders, from Martin Luther King Jr. to Anne Frank, had not been cut down by hate and bigotry.

Set to the music of John Lennon’s “Imagine,” the video was made to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Anti-Defamation League. It uses a montage to conceive of Imagine A World Without Hate.

“In our work over the last 100 years, and particularly in the aftermath of the Holocaust and other incidents of hate, we have always asked the question, ‘What if?’ What if America had been a more tolerant and welcoming society? What if more people had stood up to defy Hitler? What kind of world could we imagine for our children and grandchildren if more people stood up to say ‘no’ to racism, bigotry, prejudice and anti-Semitism?” ADL National Director and a Holocaust survivor Abraham Foxman said in a statement.

“As we look toward the future, we are hopeful that the dream of a world without hate will become a reality, as more and more individuals join ADL as allies in building a world where hate is not fostered, and where diversity is embraced as a cherished strength.”




Anne Frank, had she lived, in 2009:

Dr. King, had he lived, this year:
