The Anne Frank House:
Amsterdam, Netherlands

263 Prinsengracht Street in Amsterdam, Holland, is well known throughout the world as The Anne Frank House. This house was used for Mr. Frank’s business during the Second World War. Anne Frank and her family, along with the Pels Family and Fritz Pfeffer, hid there for two years in an annex they’d built, until they were betrayed to the Nazis. They were all captured and sent to concentration camps.

The Anne Frank House became famous after the war once Anne’s diary, written during their time in hiding, was published as a book. The house was converted into a museum after World War II. The Annex was restored as much as possible to its original state and the movable bookcase that was used to camouflage the entrance to the Annex is still in the house.

Hundreds of thousands of people visit the house yearly. Visitors are touched by the sad story of those that hid in the house until they met their tragic fate in the concentration camps. All but Otto Frank, Anne’s father, perished in the concentration camps.

No Photography is allowed in the interior of the house.
