Anne Frank's 90th birthday

2019 Annual Report

In her former home, classmates share memories of Anne Frank. On 12 June, we reflect on Anne Frank's life and legacy in various places and in various ways.


On 12 June 2019, it is exactly 90 years since the day Anne Frank was born, on 12 June 1929. Albert Gomes de Mesquita (89) and Jacqueline van Maarsen (90), Anne’s classmates at the Jewish Lyceum, will spend the day at her former home at Merwedeplein. They were also there on Anne's 13th birthday, three weeks before Anne and her family went into hiding in the Secret Annex. Her classmates will reminisce about those days and talk to young people about Anne's life and its meaning.

Across the world

The Anne Frank House offers special educational activities for museum visitors and school classes, and every visitor receives a commemorative postcard. Our partners in Berlin, Buenos Aires, and London are also paying attention to Anne Frank's 90th birthday.
