We were able to tour the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam in 2015. In preparation for the opportunity, I was re-reading her diary, too. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photos in the famous annex where they hid during World War II.
It seemed unbelievable that we were actually standing in the very rooms where they hid for two years. The website for the annex and museum has some excellent resources I highly recommend. Look under the tab labeled “Anne Frank” at the top of the page and you’ll find lots of photos and information.
Here are the photos we took that day. In my next post I’ll explain some of my feelings about the experience; it was very emotional for me.
I didn’t expect to see this at the museum. This is the Oscar that Shelley Winters received in 1960 for Best Supporting Actress, which she donated to the Anne Frank House 16 years later.
This view is looking across the canal from the house.
