The Diary of a Young Girl

I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.

Don't miss the only known video footage of Anne Frank. The Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam has begun showing it on the official channel dedicated to her on YouTube. The powerful footage was taken during a neighbor's wedding on July 22, 1941. It briefly shows Anne before she and her family were forced into hiding to avoid the Nazis during the World War II occupation of the Netherlands.

Anne Frank died at 15 in the German concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen, just two weeks before British and Canadian troops liberated the camp. Her posthumously published diary is one of the most widely read books of all time.
