Peter Schiff, the young man Anne Frank fell in love with—and who was immortalized in her diary—finally has a face, thanks to a childhood friend of his who dug up the only known photo of the tragic romeo.
"He had dark hair, beautiful brown eyes, ruddy cheeks and a nicely pointed nose. I was crazy about his smile, which made him look so boyish and mischievous....I've never had such a clear mental image of him. I don't need a photograph, I can see him oh so well."
Peter perished at Auschwitz and Anne died at Bergen Belsen. Unthinkable, and equally improbable that a childhood crush secreted in the diary of a young girl would be so captivating over six decades later.
