Anne Frank Huis

The Anne Frank Huis, located in the heart of Amsterdam, is an emblematic site steeped in historical significance. This 17th-century canal house, known globally as the Anne Frank House, served as the secret hiding place for Anne Frank and seven others during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. Today, it functions as a museum dedicated to Anne’s life and legacy, featuring the original diary she wrote while in hiding, which has been translated into over 70 languages. The museum not only preserves Anne's hiding place but also offers a poignant exhibition about the perils of persecution and discrimination.

Visitors to the Anne Frank Huis are guided through the concealed annex behind a movable bookcase, where Anne and her companions lived in hiding from 1942 to 1944. The museum's thoughtful presentation includes historical documents, photographs, and personal items that belonged to the hiders, providing a tangible connection to their lives during this perilous time. Each year, the site attracts over a million visitors from around the world, underscoring its role not only as a historical testament but also as a beacon of memory and reflection on human rights and the enduring spirit of resilience.
