Craig was brilliant. I highly recommend this tour. You learn about Anne Frank back story and what happened in Amsterdam during WW2. Really friendly and highly informative a great way to see the city from a new perspective. 😀 Especially if you couldn't get tickets into the Ann Frank House, you still get to feel and understand her story

Join the Anne Frank tour and discover the life of Anne Frank during the war.

The life of Anne Frank in Amsterdam was one of hiding and fear, but also of resilience and hope. Born in Frankfurt in 1929, Anne and her family fled to Amsterdam in 1933 to escape the rising tide of anti-Semitism in Germany. They settled in the city’s Jewish quarter, where they lived for nearly a decade before the Nazis occupied the Netherlands in May 1940.

The Frank family, along with four other people, went into hiding in the secret annex of a building on Prinsengracht, where they would remain for more than two years. The annex was cramped and dark, but it was also a sanctuary for the Frank family and their companions. They lived in silence during the day, and only dared to move about at night.

Despite the difficult conditions, Anne found solace in her diary, which she began writing on her 13th birthday. Through her words, we get a glimpse into the mind of a young girl who was forced to grow up too soon. She wrote about her fears, her hopes, and her longing for a normal life.

But the annex was not a safe haven forever. On August 4, 1944, the Frank family was discovered and arrested by the Nazis. Anne and her sister were sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp, and later to Bergen-Belsen. Anne died at Bergen-Belsen in March of 1945, just a few months before the end of the war.

The life of Anne Frank in Amsterdam was a tragic one, cut short by the atrocities of war. But through her diary, her story lives on, a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and a reminder of the horrors of the Holocaust.

War came to Amsterdam in 1940, when Nazi Germany invaded the Netherlands. The city was occupied for five long years, during which Amsterdam’s Jewish community was decimated. Families were torn apart and sent to concentration camps.

The streets were patrolled by German soldiers and any dissent was met with punishment. But there was also resistance, Amsterdam had a strong and determined resistance movement that provided shelter and assistance to Jews in hiding. The war took a heavy toll on the city and its people, but they remained resilient. Today, the Anne Frank House serves as a reminder of the human cost of war and persecution.

The memory of the war and its victims is honored throughout the city, and it serves as a reminder to always be vigilant against hate and discrimination.
