Into hiding

During the Nazi occupation the family decides to go into hiding on a secret location in the city center of Amsterdam called "het Achterhuis". It's a typical Amsterdam canal house being used as office/warehouse with steep interior stairs. Anne's family share the location with the Van Pels family and later on with an additional 9th person. The place is very crowded. The families only have limited privacy and must live in near silence.

Anne's diary

Anne collects her feelings and thoughts on a daily basis in her personal diary. In 1944 they are betrayed and on August 4th they are all arrested by the Germans and sent to Auschwitz. Only Otto Frank returns after the war. The others all died of disseases, exhaustion or are murdered in the gas chambers.

The Anne Frank House museum tells the full and impressive story of Anne Frank and her family.

Statue at Merwedeplein

From 1933, when Anne's family left Frankfurt am Main in Germany to escape the Nazis, until 1942 when they entered their Prinsengracht refuge, Anne lived at Merwedeplein 37 in the Rivierenbuurt area. In 2005 a bronze statue of Anne was unveiled on the square at Merwedeplein. Her father Otto bought Anne's diary as a present for her 13th birthday around the corner in a shop at Rooseveltlaan (formerly known as Zuider-Amstellaan) 62.
