Sole Video Footage of Anne Frank Posted Online

A video showing the only footage of Anne Frank ever recorded is now available on YouTube.

The video, uploaded by the Anne Frank House of Amsterdam on Wednesday, depicts the front of an apartment building where Frank's family lived on July 22, 1941, roughly a year before her family went into hiding in a secret apartment.

Frank is seen on video leaning out of the second-floor window of her Amsterdam home to get a glimpse of her neighbor, who is getting married.

Additional videos of an interview with Frank's father, Otto, and Frank family friends will soon be released on YouTube's Anne Frank channel, which had been viewed more than 350,000 times since its creation in February 2006.

Frank, born in Germany in 1929, was the second daughter of Otto Frank and Edith Frank-Hollander. She gained international fame in 1947 following the publication of her diary, which documented her experience hiding with her family during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. She died in 1945.
