Anne Frank: The Video

Anne FrankTo say this is rare is an incredible understatement.

The Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam has begun airing the only known video of the teenage diarist on a channel dedicated to her on YouTube.

“It is really a great platform to show all the different kinds of films and documentaries about Anne Frank,” museum spokeswoman Annemarie Bekker added.

The channel shows footage taken during a neighbor’s wedding on July 22, 1941. It briefly shows Anne before she and her family were forced into hiding to avoid the Nazis during their World War II occupation of the Netherlands.

Anne died aged 15 of typhus in the German concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen, seven months after her arrest and just two weeks before British and Canadian troops liberated the camp. Her posthumously published diary has made her a symbol of all Jews killed in World War II. [via]
