Anne Frank

This video of Anne Frank was released by the Anne Frank House Museum in Amsterdam recently. It is the only known footage, shot for a neighbor's wedding on July 22, 1941. Anne had turned twelve the month before, it was about a year before they went into hiding.
She's easily recognisable, the one with the short dark hair up in the window.
I only wonder what they were saying to each other. It's too bad there isn't sound.
I think Anne seems sort of springy and bubbly, which is how I always have imagined her. Of course it's hard to tell, it's only a few seconds.
