In the sixty years since Otto Frank opened the Anne Frank House to the public, we have never had to close the museum for more than a few hours.
The world is going through an unprecedented crisis, which has enormous consequences for all of us, and therefore also for the Anne Frank House. As part of the global effort to stop the spread of the Corona virus, we had to close our museum this spring.
‘We cannot change what happened anymore. The only thing we can do is to learn from the past and to realise what discrimination and persecution of innocent people means.’
As an independent museum that is not subsidised by the state or the city, we rely to a large extent on the revenues from museum visits for our income.
Many of our visitors have very kindly said that they would like to support us. We greatly appreciate that. For that reason, if you decide to donate to the museum, we thank you for your generosity. Every small donation really does help.
As a non-profit organisation, we rely on donations, the support of charity funds, and government grants to carry out our mission. We want to make young people aware of the dangers of antisemitism, racism, and discrimination, and teach them why freedom, equal rights, and democracy matter so much.
