Everton seems to have made a rather large error in a tribute video it released on Saturday to local victims of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a long video tribute posted on social media, the English Premier League club strangely included a photo of Anne Frank.

Why Frank — one of the most prominent victims of the Holocaust, who died in 1945 during World War II — was included in the tribute isn’t clear. The club eventually deleted the video and sent out a revised version, but has not commented on it.
Today was all about you. Those reunited with us at Goodison, but sadly also those that couldn't be there who we have lost over the course of the pandemic.
RIP Blues. 💙 pic.twitter.com/aWNh5gRlAn

For a number of reasons — most notably that Frank spent several years hiding from German persecution and had nothing to do whatsoever with the coronavirus pandemic — there's no logical excuse for Frank's face to be included in such a tribute video.
