The First Must-See in Amsterdam: the Anne Frank House

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by NiceGinna on July 26, 2008

Our first stop was the Anne Frank House, not too far from our hotel, where the family lived from July 1942 until they were betrayed in August 1944. Anne died of typhus in March 1945 in Bergen-Belsen. We went through the house which was very interesting and moving, but might be more effective with furniture. Otto Frank, Anne’s father, requested that the furniture be removed. I remember so well reading Anne’s Diary when I was a child and then seeing the Broadway show which opened in 1955; I would have been about 12 when I saw it with my mom.
