Anne Frank, YouTuber
The famous diarist’s latest online presence
This should be noted: Anne Frank now has a YouTube channel. “The site contains existing and new images, including the only known video footage of Anne—a shot a few seconds-long of her leaning out of an upstairs window during the wedding of a neighbour in July 1941,” reports London’s Telegraph today. There’s also an interview with Anne’s father, Otto Frank, interviews with people who knew her, and a clip of Nelson Mandela talking about reading her diary while he was in prison. This new site, at youtube.com/annefrank, comes on top of annefrank.org, the official site of the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam, annefrank.com, the site of the Anne Frank Center USA, and Anne Frank The Writer, a section on the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s website. It’s an impressive digital presence—especially for a girl who never lived to see Univac.
