Tangible Memories

Temporary exhibition in the Anne Frank House

The collection of the Anne Frank House consists of around 15,000 documents and artefacts. They tell the story of Anne Frank, her diary and the Secret Annex. We can’t display everything in the collection, but the exhibition gives a good impression of its diversity.

The exhibition

The exhibition is divided into the themes of photography, writing, learning and free time. The artefacts vary from photo albums of the Frank family and schoolbooks from the Secret Annex to drawings by Anne Frank and a rowing medal of her sister Margot.


Anne’s story is a source of inspiration for artists: plays and films, paintings and sculptures have all been made. A number of exceptional objects from the collection can also be seen in the exhibition.

The exhibition was on display until the summer of 2019.
