Chance to visit Anne Frank's family home

    Visitors to Amsterdam next month will be given a unique chance to see where Anne Frank and her family lived before their lives were torn apart by the Nazis.

    More than a million tourists every year go to the Anne Frank House, where the family hid for two years. But a handful can now also visit her former home on Merwedeplein, a street in southern Amsterdam.

    The flat, restored with furniture from the 1930s, will be open for one day only, on December 10. Around 300 people will be given the chance to take a look.

    The Ymere corporation, which bought the site seven years ago, said the home had "the same atmosphere as the Frank family left behind."

    The Frank family lived in the apartment for nine years but left in 1942 and went into hiding in the attic where Anne wrote her now-famous diary.

    The teenage diarist died in 1945 after contracting typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
