    been developed into a play and a film version was in the making It was a committee of Amsterdam s most prominent scientists and intellectuals who took the initiative to save the building where Anne wrote her diary They founded the Anne Frank Foundation in 1957 with the immediate goal of opening the building at Prinsengracht 263 to the public but also in order to promote the ideals of Anne a goal reflected in the Foundation s charter from its very inception Otto Frank with Anne Frank Foundation board members in front of Prinsengracht 263 in May 1957 The Foundation s efforts proved successful In 1957 Berghaus decided to abandon its plans for a new factory on the site and donated the building at Prinsengracht 263 to the Anne Frank Foundation on the occasion of its 75th anniversary However in the meantime the adjacent buildings had been acquired by a property developer who wanted to build an eight story apartment complex on the corner of Prinsengracht and Westermarkt What followed was a series of negotiations between the developer and the Foundation to purchase the entire block for an amount of 350 000 guilders In reaction Mayor of Amsterdam Gijs Van Hall stepped in by making a personal commitment to help raise the amount needed He sent a written appeal to fifty thousand residents and organisations asking for donations to the cause Mayor Van Hall s appeal asking for donations to save Anne Frank House Volkskrant Newspaper 12 June 1958 In the end Van Hall s appeal was only partially successful raising just half the funds needed to save the Annexe As a result the municipal authority and the University of Amsterdam began working together to develop a plan to provide student housing on the corner of Prinsengracht and Westermarkt and save Prinsengracht 263 in the process The funds the University provided to pre finance the project were enough for the Foundation to buy the entire block of houses and therefore preserve the buildings at Prinsengracht 263 and 265 After a great deal of delay the plan was finally instituted leading to the renovation of Prinsengracht 263 and its opening to the public on 3 May 1960 Saved from demolition Building is saved The building at Prinsengracht 263 and the properties adjacent to it were in a dilapidated state after the war More International Youth Centre Otto Frank s dream Otto Frank s vision for Anne Frank House was to turn it into an international youth centre More Renovation expansion and conservation Restoration and transformation After its initial restoration and opening in 1960 Anne Frank House has undergone two major additional renovations More All original writings on display Famous manuscripts Among the items on display inside Anne Frank House are the original diaries and samples of other writing that Anne produced More Informative exhibitions Social issues Since its opening to the public the Anne Frank House has proven itself to be much more than a historic museum More Visitors over the

  • From hiding place to museum: The history of the Anne Frank House - Restoration and renovation
    and Westermarkt This second restoration took five years to complete Thanks to some creative thinking from the builders Anne Frank House remained open to the public throughout this period The canalside house was restored to its wartime state using old photographs the careful descriptions found in Anne s diary and the memories of Miep Gies who worked there before during and after the war Today the house at Prinsengracht 263 truly reflects the times she spent there It was also during this second renovation that the old student dormitory was replaced with a new complex The construction of the new complex has considerably expanded the exhibition space and museum facilities at Anne Frank House This new section also provides office space for the majority of the employees and faculty who work for the Anne Frank Foundation The reason that part of the new complex was reserved for student housing goes back to the 1950s and is the result of a compromise made between the Foundation the municipal authority of Amsterdam and the University in the early nineties During the construction 24 student housing units were built above the museum café on the Westermarkt side The newly built section of Anne Frank House Even after the restoration and expansion effort of the nineties the museum is still working hard to conserve the personal effects that those in hiding might have used during their time in the Annexe Even after the restoration and expansion effort of the nineties the museum is working hard to conserve the Annexe in a state reminiscent of the time when it was used by the hidden eight This is of crucial importance if the Secret Annexe is to be preserved for future generations Anne s famous wall of pictures was therefore restored between 1999 and 2008 The wall had been left largely intact during the work done in the fifties but had suffered during the restoration efforts in 1970 Finally in order to maintain the proper temperature and level of humidity throughout both the Annexe and museum Prinsengracht 263 was fitted with an air conditioning system in 2008 From top to bottom the picture wall behind plastic in Anne s room the restoration of the picture wall Nico Lingbeek s workshop Saved from demolition Building is saved The building at Prinsengracht 263 and the properties adjacent to it were in a dilapidated state after the war More International Youth Centre Otto Frank s dream Otto Frank s vision for Anne Frank House was to turn it into an international youth centre More Renovation expansion and conservation Restoration and transformation After its initial restoration and opening in 1960 Anne Frank House has undergone two major additional renovations More All original writings on display Famous manuscripts Among the items on display inside Anne Frank House are the original diaries and samples of other writing that Anne produced More Informative exhibitions Social issues Since its opening to the public the Anne Frank House has proven itself to be much more
