Inside Anne Frank's house: an illustrated journey through Anne's world
"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 on a journey back in time; in each of the rooms, excerpts from Anne's diary provide 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, Otto Frank. This book 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; 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."--BOOK JACKET.
