This Gave Me the Shivers.

The Anne Frank House recently uploaded onto You Tube the only known footage of Anne Frank, leaning out her window as she watched a bride and groom on their wedding day. After Anne's diary was published in the fifties, the couple recognized Anne in their wedding video and gave a copy of it to her father, Otto Frank.

Anne appears in the window at the nine second mark. I watched it repeatedly, because it's sort of like seeing a unicorn - almost impossible to believe what you're seeing is real.

Once upon a time, a little girl with a big talent lived and loved, then was murdered in a place as close to Hell as has ever been on Earth, but her courage lived on to inspire the world.
