What would you need if you were to read & write while you're hiding from the Natzis?

So this week Design Challenge was driven from the Challenge card: "Story time - Make a specialized bookmark for a special person or a special book.", and constrained by: Tween, eavning, and "The Netherlands".

Personally, i don't really like Bookmarks, so it was a bit hard to conect to the challenge. Then i started my research with "The Netherlands" with trying to find a dutch litreture concept (a famus writer, a famus book, etc.) and on the link above, from a list of 10 best books that set in amsterdam, i found the 10th - "The diary of Anna frank".
As a jew (although i'm not that sentimental most of the time) i thought that maye that was a que for connetion, cause the other two constrains was resolved together in the same time - Anna was a tween when she wrote her diary, and her life at that time was a neverending eavning, as she was hiding from the Natzis.

I've addressed & Designed the bookmak for Anna Frank, as if sending items back in time was possible. The bookmark has two other functions beside the function as bookmark.
it can hold a pencil as Anna wrote a dairy and need a writing tool at hand all time, and its hold a little flashlight on a arm that goes from the base of the bookmark and clinging above the book/ dairy. i'm aware that the flashlght part isn't so realistic for Anna, but nether the concept of designing a bookmark for someone who've been murdured over 70 years ago.

At the back of the bookmark i've embeded the original sugnature of anne frank, as i found it on wikipedia.

Materials and methods

I used Onshpe for 3D modeling.
the model contains only the 3d printed parts. it need's also some fabric for the bookmark ribbon, a pencil, and a working flashlight.
