We will never know the adult that Anne Frank would have become, Jewish News

'I feel like a songbird that has had its wings torn off and flies against the bars of its cage in total darkness. “Outside, fresh air and laughter,” a voice inside me screams; I don’t even try to answer anymore, I lie down on a divan and sleep in order to shorten the time, the silence,  the terrible fear too, because there is no question of killing them.'  Anne Frank

The Anne Frank House in Amsterdam opened its doors again to the public on 1 June.

You can also take an online (virtual) tour of the Museum.
