Exploring Anne Frank's Amsterdam

The Anne Frank House

Old picture of The Anne Frank House

This is the house where Anne Frank and her family were hiding from the Nazis. It is located on the Prinsengracht canal. The Franks and Van Pels lived here for two years while Otto Frank ran his business. The annex was behind a bookcase that was able to move to get in.

But then on August 4th 1944 the Nazis found out and sent them to concentration camps. Otto Frank, Anne's dad, was the only person to survive.

The Jordaan

The Jordaan is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the Netherlands. There are many canals that border around it which are Lijnbaansgracht, Prinsengracht (Where the Franks's annex was), Brouwersgracht, and Leidsegracht. Jordaan is filled with many modern art galleries around the neighborhood. The Anne Frank house is also on the edge of Jordaan.
