It is reported that since 2005, Annie's home has been handed over to the Dutch Literature Foundation. This World War II refuge allowed the Annes to struggle to survive in a foreign country.

Ronald Leopard, director of the Annie Foundation, said: "This is a place where free breathing and tolerant expression are given."

This cooperation opened the prelude to Annie's 90th anniversary celebration. During her stay in the refuge, she recorded her life in detail before being sent to the Nazi concentration camp. Unfortunately, Anne died of typhus at the age of 15.


Many Jews moved from Germany to the Netherlands because of the spread of anti-Semitism, and the Annes lived in the house near Melville Square for nine years.

Despite being forced to leave her hometown, Anne's mother Edith Frank said in a letter to a friend: "the room here is bright, comfortable and warm."
