This is the only existing film of Anne Frank, who would have turned 80 this year. The video, uploaded Friday to YouTube, has been a viral sensation. You can understand why. Sixty-four years after her death, Anne’s story remains heartbreakingly inspirational across the globe.

From YouTube, via JewishJournal.com:

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.
