Anne Frank was born in 1929 in Frankfurt am Main in Germany. In 1933, the anti-Jewish National Socialist Party led by Hitler comes to power. Anne Frank's Jewish parents Edith and Otto Frank perceive that there is no future in Germany for themselves and their children. They flee to the Netherlands in 1933. Anne is then four years old. Until she is eleven she grows up without a care in a relatively safer Holland. In 1940, the Netherlands is occupied by Germany and the protection that Holland provides comes to an end.
Anne's life is increasingly restricted by the anti-Jewish Decrees. In 1942 the deportations to the 'work camps' begin. Anne's parents see the possibility of going into hiding in the annex of the building that houses Otto's business. Anne writes her diary during the two years in hiding in the Secret Annex. In August 1944, the people in hiding are arrested and deported. Via the transit camp Westerbork and then Auschwitz, Anne goes to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. She dies there in March 1945.
Otto and Edith Frank protect Anne from the danger that threatens them for as long as possible. Only a few days before going into hiding, Anne's father tells her that they are not going to a camp but are going to hide from the Germans. On July 5, 1942, a call-up notice arrives for Margot and the family goes into hiding the following day. Even though Anne sees hiding as an exciting adventure in the beginning, soon enough the hiding place becomes too small for her restless character.
We had a hard time to find a Gogh museum. Because the pronounciation of Gogh isn't at all similar to English spelling. It was so strong and different... So, if you speak English and if you want to ask that place try to spell out rather than saying Gogh. ^ ^
If you like such paintings go to the museum. By the way, what the picture is it, in which museum? If you know e-mail me.

There are dozens of museums in Amsterdam but Het Rijksmuseum and The Van Gogh Museum are the most visited by the art lovers. There is something for everyone.
