The world learned about a German Jewish girl named Anne Frank through her own candid words preserved in a personal diary that miraculously survived the Holocaust. But her words have lived on for generations, as has the very house where she and her Jewish family hid for 2 years before being found by the Nazis. Opened as a public museum on May 3, 1960, the building and annex have been restored with period artifacts.
The concealed positioning of the back house was a near perfect hiding spot for Otto Frank, his wife Edith, their daughters Margot & Anne, and four other Jewish people who were trying to escape persecution by the occupying Nazis. As you can see in the diagram above, the top 3 floors and attic were used to hide the group. The following are actual photos of the hiding space in the annex which was both preserved and restored as it appeared from 1942-1944. On the morning of August 4, 1944, following a tip from an anonymous informer, the Achterhuis was stormed by a group of German uniformed police and SS officers. Two of the four people helping to hide them (compassionate employees of Otto Frank) were arrested as well. When the war was over, Otto Frank’s company had moved and the building at Prinsengracht 263 stood empty for several years. Little is known of how Anne and her sister Margot spent their last months alive in prison camps, but it has been verified that they both died of typhus within days of each other in early March 1945 in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. You can take a virtual tour of the Secret Annex where Anne and the others lived in hiding here. Even if I can absolutely see your point, Steven, the destruction and isolation Fascism brought to Europe was terrible.
As part of the official 50th anniversary of the Anne Frank House, LBi Lost Boys and Anne Frank House have developed a 3D version of the house at Prinsengracht 263 in Amsterdam where Anne and her family lived in hiding for two years during the Second World War. The museum in Amsterdam is not furnished as the secret annex was cleared of its contents after those in hiding were arrested. The microsite is full of richly descriptive video clips, telling the story of Anne Frank through diary excerpts and archived witness reports.
To spread the story of Anne Frank through social media channels, there is also a Facebook application. The Secret Annex Online is Web Pick of the Week on Commarts, and was Site of the Day on FWA (Favourite Website Awards).


I been on this ite twice since Darren blogged about it, its very imformative and one of its kind. Yet Another Minecraft Server (YAMS)Yet another minecarft server (YAMS) is my family friendly Minecraft server that I run.
During the first half of July, Anne and her family went into hiding in an apartment which would eventually hide four Dutch Jews as well—Hermann, Auguste, and Peter van Pels, and Fritz Pfeffer.
Auguste van Pels dies somewhere in Germany or Czechoslovakia, between April 9th and May 8th 1945. Peter van Pels dies of exhaustion in concentration camp Mauthausen in Austria on 5 May 1945. Millions of people have now toured the site to pay tribute to Anne, her family and four other Jewish people who eventually perished in Nazi concentration camps after their hiding spot was betrayed. The building was originally a private residence, then a warehouse, then a manufacturing company for household appliances, and in the 1930’s it was used as a production place for piano rolls. Though it might seem like a lot of space, the usable floor space of the hiding spot only added up to about 500 square feet. Eight people living in 500 square feet for 2 years and one month without ever leaving the confines of the annex. It may be damp and lopsided, but there’s probably not a more comfortable hiding place in all of Amsterdam. The remaining two employees returned to the hiding place after it had been cleared by the Nazis and rescued some of the personal effects of Anne and the others.
Otto Frank was the only one of the eight people in hiding who survived the death camps and he was given Anne’s diary after he was liberated in 1945.
In a bitter twist of irony, British troops liberated the camp only weeks later, though the entire thing was burned to the ground to avoid further spread of disease.
Zonist have occupying Palestine for the past 60 yrs killing n murdering innocent children n women n no one cares. Thank you for making it, and for leading us through the house and also back to the original sources of your info.
The Secret Annex Online is part of the new Anne Frank website, and allows visitors to explore the front of the house and the secret annex as it was then, and hear stories that explain in greater depth what happened there. Selected quotes from Anne’s diary can be posted to your profile weekly or monthly, spreading her words of inspiration.


You really feel like you can start to understand what it was like for the people living there.
I'm a Network Manager with a passion for new technology, in my spare time I run a family friendly minecraft server called YAMS (Yet Another Minecraft Server).. For two years, they lived in a secret attic apartment behind the office of the family-owned business at 263 Prinsengracht Street, which Anne referred to in her diary as the Secret Annex. In December of 1940, Anne’s father Otto Frank moved the offices of the spice company he worked for into the building known as Prinsengracht 263.
One of the items they retrieved and intended to return to the family after the war was the diary of Anne Frank. At House Crazy, the stories of houses are told through the lenses of history, humanity and compassion.
The online hiding place allows visitors to see and learn more about various objects not on view. The success of Anne Frank's published diary draws huge attention to the hiding place, leading to it being saved and restored.
He still blushes every evening when he gets his goodnight kiss, and then begs for another one. Otto Frank's friends and colleagues, Johannes Kleiman, Victor Kugler, Jan Gies, and Miep Gies, had previously helped to prepare the hiding place and smuggled food and clothing to the Franks at great risk to their own lives. If you feel that the Anne Frank House post is too one-sided, you are more than welcome to submit some information to me on a famous or historic Palestinian home (even if it no longer exists) and I would be more than happy to research it and do a feature post on it! The virtual rooms were furnished using reference photographs that were taken in 1999 when the front part of the house and the secret annex were temporarily re-furnished.
To mark its 50th anniversary, there’s now a Secret Annex Online as well as the actual museum in Amsterdam.
