Behind the Bookcase

Through this virtual reality tour, Anne Frank’s legacy can can be seen in a new, immersive way. The Anne Frank House partnered with developer, Force Field VR, to recreate the Secret Annex where Anne Frank and her family lived in hiding from July 6, 1942 until their arrest on the morning of August 4, 1944. Using cutting-edge visualization technology and extensive historical research, the end result is an experience you will not forget.
As you are guided through the rooms by Anne, she will tell you what life in the attic was like. The rooms of the Secret Annex are furnished in the style of the time spent in hiding and provide an empathetic experience.
The creators of this exhibition hope it also helps to encourage reflection on the dangers of antisemitism, racism, and discrimination and the importance of freedom, equal rights, and democracy.
“Its so real that I felt like I was there. This is the next best thing to actually going to Amsterdam”
