Video of Anne Frank Surfaces on YouTube

Anne Frank: the only existing film images (0:09-0:14):

July 22 1941. The girl next door is getting married. Anne Frank is leaning out of the window of her house in Amsterdam to get a good look at the bride and groom. It is the only time Anne Frank has ever been captured on film. At the time of her wedding, the bride lived on the second floor at Merwedeplein 39. The Frank family lived at number 37, also on the second floor. The Anne Frank House can offer you this film footage thanks to the cooperation of the couple.

    That’s amazing. A video shot on an irrelevant day to history in so many ways is relevant in ways not expected.

    (I’ve always liked artist Jon Foster’s emotive illustrations of Anne Frank.)

    Here, just a girl in a window. And there…

    Spellbinding.

    Amazing! It was just a girl in the window but it told lots of stories!

    Anne Frank is famous for her diary (and the story behind it–including her eventual murder). YouTube (and Facebook, etc.) is in many ways the modern equivalent of what she was doing with her diary back then. If YouTube had existed in her time, I think that she totally would have been a v-logger telling her story to the world on “The YouTubes”. It’s rather appropriate that she finally made it.
