Anne Frank House once again welcomes record number of visitors

Record number of visitors

In 2013 the Anne Frank House attracted 1,195,456  visitors, 42,568 more than the previous record of 1,152,888 in 2012. The majority of the visitors come from outside of the Netherlands: only around 12% of the visitors are Dutch. The Anne Frank House website attracted over 3,400,000 unique visitors, and its number of Facebook followers rose to 83,000. The international travelling exhibition ‘Anne Frank – a history for today’ was presented in over 30 countries worldwide last year, and was seen by about half a million young people.

Ronald Leopold, executive director of the Anne Frank House, says: "Every year millions of people, most of them young, learn about the story of Anne Frank through our museum, our website and our international programmes. That is both impressive and hopeful. In this way we are carrying on the mission of Otto Frank, who was deeply involved in our organisation from the very start, to disseminate his daughter’s life story worldwide and so encourage people to reflect on the dangers of anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination."
