Anne Frank House


• The Anne Frank House is a writer's house and biographical museum dedicated to Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank.

• The building is located on a canal called the Prinsengracht, close to the Westerkerk, in central Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

Historic overview:

• After the end of World War II, the "Secret Annex" was on the list of buildings to be destroyed, but a group of people joined forces and established what is known today as the Anne Frank House Foundation.

• On May 3, 1960 AD, Anne Frank's house was opened as a museum for the public to preserve the hiding place "Secret Annex". The museum contains a permanent exhibition on the life of Anne Frank. In 2013, the museum received more than 1.2 million visitors.

• This house preserved the family's hiding place "Secret Annex" and today is one of the three most popular museums in Amsterdam.

• In June 2013, the Anne Frank House lost a lawsuit to the Anne Frank Foundation, after the foundation sued the house for the return of documents belonging to Anne and Otto Frank.

• Anne's diary and other writings have been owned by the Dutch government.

• The Foundation, which held the printing rights to Anne Frank's diaries in 2015, lost a lawsuit against the house after the house began new scholarly research on Anne Frank's texts in 2011.
