May 4 is our National Remembrance Day to honor the victims of World War II. One of them is the well known Anne Frank, the jewish girl who wrote her famous diary during her hiding in Amsterdam. This statue is situated at the "Merwede-square" where she lived before her hiding. It shows her how she left her home with lots of clothes on and a suitcase in her hand, looking back for the last time to the home where she lived at nr. 37. It is left from the doorway at the second floor.
Her home is complety restored and brought back as it was in the thirties painted with he same colours. Since 1997 it has a special destination, foreign persecuted writers can live there for a year and write in peace.
