In an Amsterdam street in the 1930s, a young newly-married couple step out. And high above them, leaning out of the window to see, is Anne Frank, captured on film by chance in what has become the only known moving image of the teenage diarist.

The fleeting film clip is part of a new project released by Google to mark what would have been Anne Frank’s 90th birthday in mid-June. In co-operation with the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, Google put up a virtual exhibit in which it re-created the Street View of Anne’s childhood home. The exhibit allows the online visitor to see all the 1930s rooms, now a temporary home and work space for refugee writers which is closed to the public.

There are also documents and insights from people who knew Anne, as well as details about her legacy and the publication of her diary.
