Anne Frank's Amsterdam: Nazi Occupation Of The Dutch Capital Contrasted With Images Of The Modern City

These incredible 'then-and-now' images show Anne Frank's Amsterdam contrasted with shots of the city from today. The pictures, which are part of an app called Anne Frank’s Amsterdam, show the Dutch capital under the occupation of the Nazis, with modern views set against dramatic black and white images of tanks, soldiers and refugees.

Anne, who lived in hiding between 1942 and 1944, was eventually discovered by the occupiers, becoming yet another Jewish victim of the Nazi onslaught after she succumbed to typhus at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. She was 15 when she died, yet her diary, discovered by her father after the war, has become one of the most celebrated works of the 20th century, documenting two years of the teenagers life under the persecution of National Socialism.
