Anne Frank House
Anne Frank was one of the many Jewish victims of the Nazi empire in Germany during the Second World War. The residence of Anne Frank is known as the “Anne Frank House.” The house is presently an important monument, as this place was a popular hiding place for many Jewish people. Anne Frank House includes two portions, wherein, one is the front house and the back annex that was the famous hiding destination.
The top floor of the annex portion was utilized for hiding from the Nazi solders. The building is located at Prinsengracht 263, where Anne’s family stayed. Otto Frank, her father was the only survivor, who got away in the war. The hiding purpose was made easy at the annex, as the entrance was covered behind a bookshelf, which was constructed quite intelligently.
During the war and violence, Anne Frank wrote a diary in which she has explained the daily activities at the back annex. After the war, Anne died and the diary was given to her father by a helper named Miep Gies. In 1947, the Dutch bought out the first edition of the diary, since the diary has been translated in many languages worldwide.
