Thursday Doors, The Anne Frank Secret Doorway

Anne Frank Secret Doorway

It was an interesting experience to go through the hidden door behind the bookcase and to climb the steep steps into the rooms where they lived and hid.

Imagine staying hidden and quiet all day without a mobile device and the internet!

The little guide book calls it a ‘Museum with a Story’ and this sets it out against other museums that do not have the same emotional connection.

  9. A sad but timely reminder of the terrible cruelty we humans are sometimes capable of. We can and should be better than this – always.
    It must be a somber and humbling place to visit. Thanks for sharing this.

  10. I used to live just opposite the Anne Frank House for about a decade. What has often puzzled me when I walked passed the waiting line (that often stretched around the corner…still does by the way) how people abroad had heard about this story of one of so many. Guess it’s because of people like yourself keeping its flame alive.

  11. I think I would take full advantage of the library, having them change up the books regularly. Beyond that, really hard to imagine, Andrew. –Curt

  12. I haven’t read that story for much too long. I visited there once in the mid-seventies. Sobering.
