This wartime hideout of the Jewish family in 1635 housed Anne and her family during World War II. Years after the publication of her diary, the house was converted into a biographical museum. Today, it stands at 263 Prinsengracht with artifacts and documents that retell the account of the Holocaust.
Visitors to the museum will get to see the secret annex where Anne and her family spent their exile for more than two years. Most of the house was preserved as it was during the wartime, including Anne’s room and her memorabilia. It also holds a heartbreaking story of the fifteen-year-old girl who died two months shortly before the end of the war. It also has some receipts of the war, including photographs, documents, and even film images.
