The Anne Frank House website attracted over 5.200.000 unique visitors, and the number of its Facebook followers grew to 729.000. Over the past year the international travelling exhibition ‘Anne Frank – a history for today’ was presented in over 30 countries, reaching around half a million young people.

Ronald Leopold, executive director of the Anne Frank House, says: “We aim to give everyone who wants to visit the Anne Frank House the opportunity to do so. The Anne Frank House is the place where the life story of Anne Frank is presented in the most authentic and reliable way. It is inspiring that so many people from all around the world visit this place and learn about its history.”

“We also introduce millions of people, most of them young, to the life story of Anne Frank through our many other activities. We organise over 300 educational Anne Frank projects in more than 30 countries. Some 5,000 young people worldwide are involved in these projects as Anne Frank ambassadors.”
