Anne Frank House
I expected to do and see a lot of things while in Amsterdam, one of them being visiting the Anne Frank House and museum. The museum features exhibitions but more importantly walks you through the Secret Annex where Anne Frank, her family and others hid from the Nazis during the occupation in WWII. It is now preserved to tell their story and promote tolerance. While all of that is admirable and powerful on its own, I found it hard not to be shaken by the spirit of the young girl who wrote in her diary, which I read in high school, imagining a better world and a better mankind.
