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,

Merwedeplein 1939.


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:
