17/26.- Amsterdam, Westerkerk and Anne Frank Huis


Anne Frank House, the hiding place (known in Dutch as the Achterhuis) where Anne Frank wrote her well-known diary during the Second World War, is now a museum where the original diary is displayed.

As well as the preservation of the Achterhuis, the museum also acts as an exhibition space to highlight all forms of persecution and discrimination.

The Westerkerk (Western Church) is a Protestant church located close to the Anne Frank House. The young girl mentioned the church frequently in her diary. Its clock tower could be seen from the attic of the Achterhuis and she described the chiming of the clock as a source of comfort. A memorial statue of Anne Frank is located outside the church.
