Description

Anne Frank was a young girl who kept a diary while she and her family hid from the Nazi occupiers of Amsterdam. The journal was distributed posthumously, but it is now one of the most-read books ever written – with more than 30 million copies sold. This tour will take you beyond what most people know about Anne Frank, into the life she led before her time in hiding, and discuss how she has been used as an icon over the years. Anne Frank spent much of her childhood in Amsterdam, and the city has a special place in her heart. She was born on June 12th, 1929, in Frankfurt am Main and moved to Amsterdam in 1933 due to her father Otto Frank's concern about the upcoming anti-Semitism. During this walking tour, head to the places important to Anne Frank in her childhood. See where she went to school and the bookshop where she bought her famous diary. Explore the area where she played outside and discover the house where Otto Frank’s secretary and most crucial helper, Miep Gies, lived for many years. Miep Gies handed the diary over to Otto Frank after the war. She also saved a number of the family’s personal belongings after the Germans raided the house. The tour takes place in the south of Amsterdam, where you will have the opportunity to become acquainted with an area of the city that you would otherwise not see as a tourist. This area was constructed in the 1920-30s and was based on revolutionary ideas of city planning, architecture, and social housing.
