  • The Anne Frank Memorial Statue - Amsterdam
 

Just around the corner from the Anne Frank House, on the Westermarkt, is a a very sweet statue (by Mari Andriessen) of the little Jewish girl who lived in the Secret Annex until her family were found and she died at Bergen-Belsen, 3 months before her 16th birthday.
On the day that I visited there were an elderly gentleman and his grandaughter (greatgrandaughter??) - she was looking intently at the statue and listening to his explanation... it was for me one of the most moving moments of all my visits to Amsterdam.
