What is at the Museum?
This house has a secret annex where a girl called Anne Frank and seven other youngsters hid when Germans occupied the area during World War 2. It is in this annex that she wrote the world’s famous daily accounts of the occupation in her diary. Unfortunately, she, like many other Jews of her time, did not live long enough to see the end of the war as she died in a concentration camp. Her father, who survived the war, helped publish a book based on the diary.
The museum is one of the most visited places in Amsterdam as it receives over one million visitors each year. Visitors get to learn about the Nazi regime and horrors of the Holocaust along with the general life of the residents of Amsterdam during the occupation. You can visit the museum every day from Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 10 pm except during certain Jewish holidays.
