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.
