The Secret Annex Online

Since the launch of The Secret Annex Online in April 2010, more than 900,000 people have visited this website.  In 2011, this virtual version of the renowned hiding place in Amsterdam won the prestigious Webby Award and many other national and international prizes: a Lovie Award in the category Non-Profit; a Red Dot Award in the category Communication Design; the Dutch Interactive Award; the Silver Spin Award in the category Best Online Content and the History Online Prize for the best Dutch website on history. The Anne Frank House’s main website annefrank.org was also a finalist at the Dutch Design Awards.

The German version of The Secret Annex Online: Das Hinterhaus Online was launched in February. The presentation took place at the Anne Frank House’s partner organisation in Berlin, the Anne Frank Zentrum. Following the Dutch and English, the German version is    the third language version to go online.

Anne Frank Timeline

On 8 May 2011, the website Anne Frank Timeline went live in four additional languages: French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. This visual timeline places Anne Frank’s life in the context of important historical events. It recounts the story of Anne Frank in hiding during World War II and continues into the present, also focusing on the significance of the diary and the Anne Frank House.  The Anne Frank Timeline, which had already been released earlier in Dutch, English and German, received a lot of extra attention when it was named ‘Site of the Day’ by the FWA (Favourite Website Awards).
