Rare Anne Frank photos, film made available online

Rare photographs and a short film of Anne Frank, whose diary of her time in hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam made her a symbol of the Holocaust, are now available online, the Anne Frank House said Sunday.

The foundation's website -- www.annefrank.org -- features the only existing film footage of the young Jewish girl, taken in 1941 before her family went into hiding during the World War II occupation.

The black-and-white clip shows Anne Frank leaning from a balcony, watching the wedding preparations of one of her neighbors.

The site also includes photographs and testimony from family friends and neighbors -- including from Miep Gies, the Dutch woman who helped the Frank family hide from the Nazis -- published for the first time in digital form.

The site includes around 20 historical film fragments, in what is the most complete history of Anne Frank on the Internet, according to the Amsterdam-based foundation.

The updated site has been launched in advance of celebrations to mark the 75th anniversary of Anne Frank's birth, on June 12, 2004.

The girl's secret journal, later published as "The Diary of Anne Frank", chronicles two years in the life of a young Jewish girl living in hiding, fearful of deportation to a Nazi death camp. Anne Frank, 15, was arrested with her family in Amsterdam on August 4, 1944, and died in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in March 1945, shortly before its liberation by the Allies at the war's end.

Xena, if you want powerful, go to Amsterdam and visit the house. It is an amazing experience.

I saw the movie on TV when I was a young kid about 40 years ago. I'll never forget those sirens and the skylights.

If you've never read it, you should. You'll be amazed by the depth of this young girl's understanding.

I visited her house when I was about 13-14 and my Dad was stationed in Germany in the late 60's. That was just one of the powerful memories I have of those days. Another was when we went to visit Dachau.

I'm not going to make different postings for these stories on election day, but an Anne Frank update is definitely called for:

I'll start with the first more upbeat story; She is being considered for citizenship in Holland.

http://www.rnw.nl/special/en/html/041027dh.html

Then the next story:

http://www.ktvb.com/news/localnews/stories/ktvbn-oct2904-vandals_arrested.5553d40.html

"Two arrested for Greenbelt and Anne Frank Memorial vandalism "

My note, paint cleaned up from acts; occurred in Idaho. Pictures of these characters at link.
