This is what Anne Frank might have looked like today had her life not been cut short in the Holocaust.

The Anne Frank Trust UK used age progression technology to create the image—which was released ahead of the diarist’s 80th birthday on June 12.

It is hoped the picture will help inspire Britain’s children to think about the kind of lives they would like to lead, and to remember the loss of approximately six million European Jews during the World War II genocide.

Anne, who died aged just 15, gained worldwide fame following the publication of her diary which documents her experiences hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in the Second World War.

Her journal was first published in Dutch in 1947 and has since been translated into 60 languages. It remains one of the most poignant documents of Jewish life during the Holocaust.
