Anne Frank on Film


Here is the magic of You Tube: when some archival footage turns up, it won't just end up in a university library--it will go online and become available to the world.

I recently heard about this rare footage--this only known footage of Anne Frank, on NPR. Anne is seen enjoying the sight of a neighbor's wedding. According to NPR, Anne herself was fascinated by the emerging technology of film; her father had a camera and Anne was learning to use it. She liked the idea of being captured on film, and here, at long last, we can see her.

J-
I was searching on-line and came across your blog. I saw your picture and knew exactly who you were - you haven't changed a bit.

I have such fond childhood memories of you and your family. My favorites were my trips to Michigan. I always enjoyed Weko beach and your grandparents farm. I married a man from MI (and German) but I could never remember where your grandparents farm was located.

It is amazing how easy it is to "run" into someone online. Do you still sing? I always wished I could sing like you. Please tell Linda I said "hello". I'm on FB.

Sincerely,
Kristin Szykowny Scamehorn
