Subject

Harry Potter Family Album

Description

This family photo album was given to Harry by the Gamekeeper Hagrid at the end of his first year at Hogwarts. The album symbolized Hagrid's love for Harry as well as a connection to Harry's mother and father.

Before this album was given to him, the only thing Harry knew about his parents were that they were killed by Voldemort. This album gave him insight into who his parents were and the fact that they loved him more than their own lives.

This album is first presented in the series at the end of the first novel/movie and it makes appearances throughout the rest of the series. Whenever Harry is having a hard time or is feeling sad he pulls out this album to look at his mother and father.
