The secret annexe and the front part of the house
The experience gained using an educational construction kit of the Secret Annexe in primary schools showed that this way of working – making a reconstruction of the Secret Annexe and in doing so learning about the hiding place and the period in hiding – is very highly appreciated. Based on the positive experiences with the school version, a plan was made to develop a construction kit for individual users. The new construction kit includes both the Secret Annexe and the front part of the house, and shows the entire building at Prinsengracht 263 as it was during the period in hiding.
The kit has been created by Wouter Biegelaar and the Dutch cardboard model specialists Bouwen=Vouwen, assisted by architect Joost Marchal, who has carried out historical research on the building.
