Anne Frank House

annefrankhuisIn the Jordaan are many sights worth seeing. At the border of Jordaan stands the Anne Frank House: the hiding place where Anne Frank wrote her well-known diary during the second world war. Now the house serves as a museum, where the original diary is part from of the permanent exhibition. In 1942 Otto Frank went hiding with it's family in a back room of it's own office building. In that period daughter Anne Frank wrote her diary. Just before the end of the war the hiding place was discovered and the family were moved to labour camps. Anne Frank did not survived this, bur father Otto did. From the moment he published the diary, it went a worldwide hit.
