Continuing our global virtual tour, let’s make one more stop in Amsterdam at the Anne Frank’s House and Museum. Her full name was Annelies Marie Frank. Her world-famous Diary chronicling the two plus years in hiding from the Nazi’s has been translated into 70 languages and has sold 30+ million copies.
Anne rewrote her diary in 1944 after hearing a call on the radio from the BBC for people to save their war-time diaries in order to help document the suffering during the occupation. She received the Diary, which was really an autograph book, on her 13th birthday. The residents of the secret hidden Annex were discovered on August 4, 1944 and of the 9 in hiding only Anne’s father, Otto, survived the holocaust.
Amsterdam has a lot of charm, including its canals, more bicycles than people, but at the top of my list and that of my family was the Anne Frank house and Museum. It’s an emotional rollercoaster observing both the attic hideout and reliving the memories of the past.
As we leave Amsterdam, let’s remember Anne’s words. “Where there’s hope, there’s life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.”
