Do you know the story of Anne Frank ?

Anne Frank is a Jewish girl who had to go into hiding during The Second World War to escape the Nazis. She kept a diary while in hiding at Prinsengracht in Amsterdam. Anne enters the Secret Annex (hiding place) as a girl, but grows into a young woman there. She spends more time thinking about life and records her thoughts in her diary.

Anne hopes for her diary to be published as a novel after war. That’s why she starts rewriting it, but she never manages to finish it. Anne and the others in hiding were discovered and deported to the concentration camps. Of the eight people in hiding only Anne’s father, Otto Frank, survives. She died in March 1945 in Bergen-Belsen.

Housed in one of Amsterdam’s characteristic canalside houses, the Annexe located at Prinsengracht 263 provided eight people with a hiding place for two years during the Second World War. Last weekend we went to Amsterdam and visited Prinsengracht 263. (but not the museum – to many people). But one can visited the house : click: http://www.annefrank.org/en/Subsites/Home/Enter-the-3D-house/#/house/20/help/

I wonder if the story of Anne Frank is famous all over the world or just in Europe?

    • Thanks for the answer, I thought it was only famous here in Belgium, Holland and other countries in Europe but another blogger from California has given me also a positive answer! So it look likes she is famous all over the world…

      And… only two days from now… are you nervous?

    • It looks like she is not only famous in the USA, someone from Canada has given me also a positive answer. I hope the bloggers from Asia read my post and if I’m lucky, I get an answer from them.
      You have found also the blog from Michael Lai (retiree or something like that) from Hong Kong. I like his blog and photos because they are beautiful but also because it are photos from a whole other part of the world. (that I don’t know about)
