Anne Frank In Archival Footage
Oh what a beautiful piece of film. Thank you to a friend in Alberta who sent me this today. Anne Frank can be seen on a little balcony above the street watching a newly married pair of neighbours walk out into the street. I am so amazed...look how vibrant the street is and busy and full of life. The date is July 22, 1941. It's so incredible to see the life force and people moving so freely in the Amsterdam street. It's impossible and heart breaking to me to imagine how different things will be in such a short time in the future from this very moment.
This video can be found at the official Anne Frank YouTube page. Isn't YouTube AWESOME!?
