Amsterdam landmark haunted by the Second World War
A hugely popular and moving tourist attraction that goes beyond incomprehensible Holocaust figures and focuses on one Jewish family's struggle to survive tucked away in an annex in this house, which opened as a museum in 1960, having been saved from demolition. The story centres on Anne Frank (1929–45), whose diariy entries written while in hiding between July 1942 and her family's discovery by the Nazis in August 1944 remain among the more iconic works associated with Amsterdam.
