Then and now photos of Anne Frank’s world

These images are from Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, where the past and present come together in a somewhat haunting photo series of World War II. Not only just depicting the plight of Anne Frank and her family, this exhibition allows you to explore the entire city of Amsterdam via an app called Anne’s Amsterdam.

Go over the Berlage Bridge, discover the Jewish neighborhoods near Blauw Bridge, the southern part of Amsterdam where many Jewish people were arrested, and even stand on the steps of Opekta, the business Anne Frank’s father ran after moving to Amsterdam in 1933.
