Anne Frank and her neighbors
a unique private walking tour
Walking tour of the neighborhood in Amsterdam where Anne Frank lived for more than eight years before going into hiding.
Experience her world in the context of the bigger, historical picture of those times.
Let me share what I’ve learned from years of studying Anne Frank's world, World War Two and the Holocaust.
Anne Frank with friends,
In 1933 Anne Frank's parents rented an apartment on Merwedeplein in Amsterdam. In Germany Adolf Hitler had come to power and the Frank family hoped to find a safe haven in the neighborhood like many other Jewish refugees. During the walking tour I'll paint a vivid picture of their lives .
We will pause at locations that played an important role in the neighborhood’s history from 1933-1945, such as the synagogue and the school Anne Frank and other children attended.
Among the locations visited will be those connected to the following topics:
Neighborhood synagogue in 1937.
Merwedeplein around 1932.

The diversity of Jewish life
The German occupation: persecution and Jewish resistance
