Anne Frank House: A Museum with a Story (the catalog of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam)

Visitors to 263 Prinsengracht are taken on a journey back in time. In each of the rooms, excerpts from Anne’s diary provide an impression of what happened there during the hiding period.Visitors encounter traces of the inhabitants of the Secret Annex, and also of the four employees of Otto Frank who did so much to help the people in hiding. In compiling this catalog, the museum-route through the Anne Frank House was followed. The quotations and objects displayed in the actual exhibit can also be found here, supplemented by background information. To provide a better impression of the hiding period, color photographs of a temporary refurbishing of both the front part of the house and the Secret Annex are included in this handsomely printed volume.
