Anne Frank's House
The most famous private diary in the world.
Anne Frank was condemned to living in secret from July 1942 until August 1944, beginning just 3 weeks after her 13th birthday, the day she received her diary in which she recorded her two-year long story. Published after the war by her father, the only member to survive the family's deportation, it would go on to be translated into 60 languages.
This house, and particularly its attic, is the pivotal point of this moving story. Besides the visit itself, the museum, which has been open since 1960, offers many educational programmes on the themes of discrimination, the Second World War andanti-Semitism.
