Anne Frank, Dr. King and the ADL’s Moving Video
What if Martin Luther King, Jr., Anne Frank, Matthew Shepard and Yitzhak Rabin were still alive today?
A new video from the Anti-Defamation League depicts the contributions they could have made to society and asks viewers to envision a world without hate. Produced for the ADL’s 100th anniversary and set to John Lennon’s “Imagine,” the video has gone viral with over 350,000 views on YouTube.
Here are some viewers’ reactions on Twitter:

The ADL’s critics, however, weren’t so moved:
