Anne Frank Memorial Museum, Berlin
The Anne Frank Centre is located just next to the Häckeschen Höfe in Berlin’s new Mitte district in an area near the S-Bahn Häckescher Markt known as the Scheunenviertel. Jewish life and business prospered here until the Nazi takeover in the 1930s.
The exhibition “Anne Frank – A Story for Today” is housed in the Haus Schwarzenberg, a lively cultural centre where history lives on today. It was in this house that businessman Otto Weidt provided a safe house for persecuted Jews at the height of the Nazi deportations, in his workshop for the blind. The exhibition skilfully links past and present with guided tours, audio information points, films and an interactive Learning Centre, offering a varied programme designed for schools and youth centres.
