So we did the next best thing!
We walked all around it while Greg told me everything that he remembered from the tour when he had visited on his mission. This last photo has the church that she saw from her window. And we went to the back door to see where they would get supplies. I'm a big fan of visiting historical sites because it makes the story I've heard much more real to me. So even though we didn't get to go inside, I felt a special respect there as I saw the line wrap around the city block and slow down traffic. It's so nice to see so many humans from different backgrounds all agreeing that something is worth seeing and seeing so many people pay their respects to Anne and her family's struggle.
Here are a few more photos of the area surrounding Anne Frank's house. I particularly loved the Amsterdam Tulip Museum.
