Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl has been read by millions around the world and many of them have, since the house was opened as a museum in 1960, traveled to Amsterdam to see the building and the hiding place where Anne Frank wrote her diary. Visitors to 263 Prinsengracht are taken an a journey back in time; in each of the rooms hang excerpts from Anne's diary, providing an impression of what happened there during the hiding period-and visitors can trace the lives of each of the inhabitants of the Secret Annex and the four employees of Anne's father. Inside Anne Frank's House takes readers on the same journey, following the same route that visitors make on the physical tour. The same excerpts from the diary that appear in the house are included-with the addition of background information by the museum directors and designers, the words of Anne's father, comments from some of the people who have been affected by Anne's words, and a comprehensive history of the publication of the diary. The photographs compiled here are in black-and-white and in color; they are vivid and moving, and make a lasting impression. The reader experiences the house and its relics, and sees photos of Anne's family and their friends, as well as the people who helped them and the changing Amsterdam neighborhood where they lived. Without a doubt this essential photographic document is a thorough, disturbing, and crucial part of the testament to faith and humanity that continues to live on as Anne Frank's legacy. The Anne Frank House draws nearly one million visitors from around the world annuallyPublication to coincide with the seventy-fifth anniversary of Anne's birth and te sixtieth anniversary of her last diary entries.
