Anne Frank’s House
Imagine waking up, day after day, year after year, not knowing if everyone and everything you love would be taken away. You fear life in a concentration camp even more than you fear death. That was Anne Frank’s world for more than two years.
During World War II, when the Nazi’s occupied the Netherlands, fifteen year old Anne and her family hid in the Secret Annex, a hidden space above the offices where her father had worked.
The front portion of the building has been turned into a museum with exhibitions about the persecution of the Jews during the war. The back of the building has been preserved to give visitors an idea of what life was like for Anne and the families who were hidden at Prinsengracht 263.
