Anne Frank: The Only Existing Film Images

July 22 1941. The girl next door is getting married. Anne Frank is leaning out of the window of her house in Amsterdam to get a good look at the bride and groom. It is the only time Anne Frank has ever been captured on film. At the time of her wedding, the bride lived on the second floor at Merwedeplein 39. The Frank family lived at number 37, also on the second floor.


  1. This film clip strikes me as uncanny and a bit disturbing. It's incredible to see both Anne and seemingly normal life in Amsterdam some 15 months after the Nazi invasion.

  2. It is eerie and tremendously sad when you know what's coming. The clip has gone viral on the web, but I couldn't help posting it anyway.
