The Anne Frank House opens its door online. We think it is important that young people become acquainted with Anne Frank’s life story and get to visit the place where she went into hiding and wrote her diary. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to visit the actual hiding place in Amsterdam. The virtual guided tour of the Secret Annex offers a good alternative.

How does it work?
Our educator will connect online with the students and explore the different rooms of the Secret Annex in a VR-environment. Together they will discuss the people in hiding, the helpers and the premises. Why did the Frank family had to go into hiding and why did they hide in this particular building? Who were the other people in hiding and what was their everyday life like? And of course the diary will be discussed and there will be room for questions. Moreover, the Secret Annex Online shows the hiding place furnished and gives an impression of what the rooms looked like during the hiding period. 

The Online Tour of the VR-Secret Annex takes about one hour and is tailored to your group of students.
