Anne Frank House Amsterdam : Museum, History & Movement

Anne Frank House is an attraction in Amsterdam that has attracted visitors from all over the world. The house revolves around the diary of Anne Frank – a Jew who was persecuted by Hitler’s regime during WW2. To avoid the wrath of Hitler, the Frank family escaped to the Netherlands. However, in 1940, German occupation of the Netherlands began and the Frank family went into hiding.

Location of Anne Frank House

This is the location of their residence. Prinsengracht. It was actually Otto Frank’s (Anne’s dad) company and it was there that they hid for more than 2 years before being betrayed to the Nazis and deported. One of the key features of this compound was that there was a secret staircase, hidden by a movable bookcase that led to the Annex – the place where the Franks hid.

The museum shows the conditions that the Franks lived in, such as minimal use of the toilet during the day, no noise, only whispers. The food that they ate, how they exercised and of course the thoughts of Anne Frank.
