The Webby Awards are annually awarded to the best websites in the world. Out of 13,000 entries from 70 countries and all of the United States, several hundred projects have been nominated. Annefrank.org was nominated in the categories Cultural Institutions and Culture & Events.
DOOR (the culture label of IN10), Maykin Media, and the Anne Frank House have developed the portal in close cooperation.
Through its annefrank.org portal, the Anne Frank House reaches millions of people all over the world.
The new website went online in 2018. The homepage offers three main menus: everything you need to know about visiting the Anne Frank House (and how to order your tickets), the life story of Anne Frank, and the educational activities of the Foundation.
In addition to this practical and concise information, the website contains in-depth background information, such as the long reads ‘Germany in 1933, from democracy to dictatorship’, ‘The arrest of the eight people hiding in the Secret Annex’, and ‘Anne Frank, from writer to icon’.
The site also offers a revamped 3D tour of the Secret Annex and an interactive timeline of important events that happened before, during, and after Anne Frank's life.
There is a lot of space for photos and videos on the new website. In a special series of videos, young people talk about their experiences with prejudice and discrimination.
