Amsterdam’s Anne Frank House recently put on YouTube rare footage of Anne Frank leaning out of a window to get a look at a newly married couple in her neighborhood:
And here’s Anne Frank, at a younger age, in a group photo:
Anne Frank is the little girl to the left (in a dress in the front row). Margo Frank, Anne’s older sister, is with the taller kids in the back row, and is wearing a dress similar to her sister’s. Margo is the one on the right. Both Anne and Margo died of typhus at Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp in March, 1945. Bergen-Belsen is near Hanover, in northwest Germany.
Here’s an image from Bergen-Belsen (taken in 1945):

Bergen-Belsen’s consumption of Anne and Margo Frank drives me to ask with Wilfred Owen (in his 1918 poem, “Futility”):
Was it for this the clay grew tall?
—O what made fatuous sunbeams toil
To break earth’s sleep at all?
