The Anne Frank House is a monument in memory of Anne Frank (known for the diary she wrote The Secret Annex) and her family.
More than two years Anne Frank was living with her family in hiding in the annex of the building where Anne's father, Otto Frank, had his business. The Van Pels family and Fritz Pfeffer also had their hiding place here.
On August 4, 1944, the hiding place was betrayed and the people in hiding were deported to various concentration camps. Only Otto Frank survived the war.
