Set in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam and depictinga family and acquaintances hidden in the sealed-offupper rooms of an office building, thisis Anne Franks story of captivity,fear, andthe burgeoning of a hopeful and beautiful spirit. In the indomitable words of Anne Frank, I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.

I had wanted to visit Amsterdam for a number of years, particularly to visit the Anne Frank house. Yes, the queues are long, but that is not the reason for my disappointment, and has absolutely nothing to do with the rating of this review. I have a number of friends who have visited a number of years ago, who talked about the atmosphere in the house, seeing recreations of the rooms the Frank family lived in which gave them a real understanding of the conditions they faced. This is no longer the case. We walked around empty rooms, with quotes from Anne’s diary on the walls, along with a few documentaries on small TVs- all of which have already been shown on TV in the UK. I expected to get a real sense of the hiding place, but was left sorely disappointed. At only 9 euros, it’s not expensive, I just wish I had visited sooner and had the opportunity to experience what my friends had experienced in the past.

Miep Gies (pronounced “mip xis”) was one of the Dutch citizens who hid Anne Frank, her family, and family friends from the Nazis in an attic annex above Otto Franks place of business. Miep was a great support to the Franks family during their 2 years of hiding and it was she that retrieved Anne’s diary after the family was arrested. She later gave it to Anne’s father, Otto, when he returned from Auschwitz in 1945. She said, “I am not a hero, I just did what any decent person would have done.” More

We did not really plan on going to Anne Frank house as I wanted to go to Corrie Ten Boom house. But because we were running out of time, and Corrie house is in Haarlem which is harder to get to, we went to Anne Frank house instead. We went at 7:00pm and there was a line up for around 15 minutes. They have free wifi in the lineup.

Entrance is $9 per person. It is very depressing if you think about those times. The exhibits were very good. The place was too crowded that it felt claustrophobic. At one point you cannot move as you have to wait for some time for people to climb the stairs. As it was so crowded inside, we had to rush in the last exhibits as they are closing.

I certainly did not regret visiting this place.

This is a must-do. We visited the neighborhood on the previous day and got the sense of it, which was very helpful in putting what happened to this family in context. The lines are extremely long, and outside on the sidewalks. We were fortunate to have group tickets and were able to jump the line. Once in the “house” you must continue in single file most of the way. There are some very steep steps and narrow passages. The information is well-presented and powerful. The famous statue of Anne is a couple of blocks away.
