Anne Frank House, Amsterdam: 242 reviews and 258 photos
The Anne Frank House - located at the Prinsengracht, close to the Westerkerk, in Amsterdam, is a museum dedicated to the Jewish girl Anne Frank who hid here with her family and other people from Nazi persecution during the German occupation of the Netherlands. Anne wrote a wartime diary about her life in the refuge; the occupants were later betrayed to the authorities and deported to concentration camps, where all died (except Otto Frank, her father). The diary could be retrieved nonetheless and give an emotional and moving impression about Jewish life during the Nazi terror reign. The museum was reopened in 1999 and is one of the most-visited museums of Amsterdam (an average on > 1Mio. visitors per year).
A small statue of Anne Frank can be found next to the Westerkerk.
