It was 70 years ago, on August 4th, 1944 that diarist Anne Frank was arrested by the Nazis. The story of her years of hiding and eventual capture is one of the best known of WWII. But her first cousin, once removed Jean-Michel Frank experienced fate no less tragic. The amazingly talented and super influential minimalist designer, who was born in Paris, lost his two elder brothers on the front line of WWI; his father committed suicide; his mother died in a Swiss asylum. After commissioning some legendary projects, including a series of furniture for Hermes (1924) and the interior of Nelson Rockefeller's Fifth Avenue apartment (1937), he committed suicide on a trip to NY, while living in Buenos Aires in 1941.
