Possibly the most famous attraction of Amsterdam, the Anne Frank House attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
It is in this house where Anne Frank went into hiding, together with her family and a few other people, to hide from the persecution by the Nazis during the second World War.
This went well for quite some time, but in the end they were betrayed, captured and transported to the Nazi destruction camps.
After the war ended, Anne Frank's diary was found, which was later published and became a world-wide bestseller.
The Secret Annex, where the family was hiding, has been left intact as much as possible, and can be visited.
