The Rivierenbuurt was a new neighbourhood where many Jewish refugees from Germany came to settle. In 1939 the Van Pels family moved to the Zuider-Amstellaan, right behind the Frank family, who lived on the Merwedeplein. Otto and Edith Frank often had open house on Saturday morning, with coffee and pastries. Hermann and Gusti van Pels were often present, recalls Miep Gies, another frequent guest at these gatherings.

On 4 August 1944, everyone in the Secret Annex where Anne Frank was hiding are arrested. Someone has betrayed them. They are deported first to the Westerbork transit camp, and then on to Auschwitz. Otto Frank is the only person from the Secret Annex to survive the camps. The identity of their betrayer has never been established. Anne1st is in the same barracks as her Mom & Sis, but later Anne & Margot are taken to Bergen-Belsen. Anne dies there in March 1945,at the age of 15..

Anne Frank, with her mother, Edith, circa I love this natural and smiling photo. Sadly, it is impossible to look at without thinking of what lies ahead for them and millions of other innocent victims of the Holocaust.

The Anne Frank Tree in 2006. Mentioned three times in Anne's dairy. Anne loved looking out of the attic window at this tree. (Unfortunately this tree has recently been removed, because of the fact that it could fall down)
