The entries scribbled in Anne Frank's diary continue to live on in print, and in the years after her diary was recovered, her story has been acted out on stage and in the movies. Starting today, her words will continue to resonate with audiences on YouTube.

On Wednesday, the Anne Frank House and YouTube announced the launch of a channel devoted to the Jewish teenager who chronicled her life with her family as they hid from Nazis in Amsterdam for two years during WWII. The YouTube channel features the only video footage of Anne Frank as well as interviews with her father, Otto Frank, and other people who knew her before her death in 1945 at the Bergen-Belsen Nazi Concentration Camp in northern Germany.

"With the Anne Frank Channel on YouTube, people around the world will be able to explore the life and significance of Anne Frank through unique images," a media statement from the Anne Frank House stated.

The YouTube channel also features a preview of the upcoming Anne Frank House virtual museum, which is set to launch April 28 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the actual Anne Frank House located in Amsterdam.

"We hope this YouTube channel will help broaden the reach of the Anne Frank House, its educational power and its message of tolerance,” says Mascha Driessen, Head of YouTube and Display at Google in the Netherlands.
