The Secret Annex

The Secret Annex was located on the second floor of a business owned by Otto Frank. As Anne describes in her diary, the house is composed of a labyrinth of hallways, stairs, and little rooms. The Franks were not the only one living the the house though. Later in time Hermann and Auguste van Pels and their son Peter would join the Franks in the cramped living space. Fritz Pfeffer would also live with the Franks in the Secret Annex. Four of Otto's employees in the business below would help them stay hidden away from the Nazis and other Germans.
