Anne Frank House: A New Home For Refugee Writers

Cortez writes “Last year, roughly 936,000 people walked along the Amsterdam canals to visit the Anne Frank House, the hiding place where Anne Frank wrote the major part of her famous diary during World War II. But only a few miles away in the quiet southern part of the city, the apartment where Anne Frank lived for nine years before the German occupation remains unknown to most of the outside world. Now the flat will be restored to the Frank-era and become a place of sanctuary for writers.”
