The only available footage of diarist and Holocaust victim Anne Frank has hit YouTube.

The Anne Frank House posted the video of an Amsterdam neighbor’s wedding, which shows the young woman looking down at the celebration from an upstairs window. The couple had given the recording to Anne’s father during the 1950s following the publication of her renowned diary.

“The museum has had the footage for some time, but thought YouTube would be a good platform to show the film and the other films about her life,” a museum rep told The Guardian. “It’s another way to bring the life of Anne Frank to the attention of younger people, and all people worldwide.” (The Guardian)
