Anne Frank gets her own YouTube channel

Perhaps the most famous child of the Holocaust was Anne Frank. She is known, of course, for the diaries she kept as a teenager in Holland, hiding from the Nazis before she was taken to a German concentration camp where she died in 1945. Her story continues to resonate so many years later.

This week, the Anne Frank Museum officially launched its own channel on You Tube. The channel has begun showing the only known film footage of Anne Frank. It was taken during a neighbor’s wedding in 1941 and shows Anne Frank leaning outside a window to get a good look at the bride and groom — a happy day, four years before Anne Frank’s death.
