Anne Franks house

Anne Frank's house

This was just one of those buildings that defied a good capture from almost any POV as it was right on the canal, but I'm including this one (of many attempts) because it's so famous and because we tried hard to tour it, but the lines waiting to get in were just phenomenal (clear around the block every time we were here). I guess that's a good thing in general as more people learn about Anne Frank, but not a good thing for us. The house that Anne Frank and her family hid from the Nazis in for two years is the one with the black ground level.

I have read Anne Frank and seen at least a couple movie renditions. It is so amazing to see
this through your lens, Helen. Thanks so much for sharing. ~
