Anne Frank Video on YouTube


Take a look at the video. This is the only existing video footage of Anne Frank, now published on YouTube by Amsterdam museum the Anne Frank House. The footage, filmed on 22 July 1941, shows Anne's neighbor on her wedding day. A 13-year-old Anne can be seen nine seconds into the video, leaning out of a second-floor window to get a better look at the bride-to-be next door.

Anne Frank was a Jewish girl who was born in the city of Frankfurt am Main in Weimar Germany, and who lived most of her life in or near Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. By nationality, she was officially considered a German until 1941, when she lost her nationality owing to the anti-Semitic policies of Nazi Germany. Anne gained international fame posthumously following the publication of her diary which documents her experiences hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II.
