A Visit to The Anne Frank House
After returning from Keukenhof this afternoon we headed over to the secret annex where the Frank famy hid out for a little more than 2 years during WWII. It was a really interesting "museum" if you can even call it that. You enter through a very modern museum that actually sits next to the office with a secret annex behind it.
After you enter you make your way through each of the empty rooms where quotes from Anne's diaries are written on the walls. The apartment where the family lived wasn't tiny but I cannot imagine not being able to be apart for two entire years on top of the stress of hiding out!
Most people are familiar with the story and have read the diary but I guess I had never put much thought into how that diary became a book or what happened to Anne. I dedinitely thought it was worth the visit.
