Video of Anne Frank posted to YouTube

annfrank-230The only moving images ever taken of Anne Frank have been posted to the Internet. Anne Frank is the young Jewish girl killed in holocaust whose diary personalizes the loss that the world suffered when the Nazis rose to power. The video shot on July 22, 1941 shows young Anne looking out the window at the happy wedding couple below who were the subject of the home movie. The video was posted by the Anne Frank House, in the hope of bringing her message to a new generation.

As someone who has read her diary, I found the footage moving and stunning.
