If she were still alive Anne Frank would be celebrating 90 years. During the occupation of Holland by Germany in World War II, eight Jews were able to remain hidden in secret wings of a house for two years between 1942 and 1944. The Frank family and a few other Jews were helped by others who provided them food and essential goods without the suspicion of the Nazis. The experience was recorded in the young woman's diary and her story ran the world.

The house, known as the Secret Annex, located in the center of Amsterdam, can now be visited in person as a museum, but Google worked with the organization to bring the space for an online exhibition at Arts & Culture. Stories, house and family photographs, and even Anne Frank's only known video were captured in the window of her house during a wedding in 1941.

The website also has panoramic photographs with a 360º view, and it is possible to visit the room shared between the young Anne and her sister Margot. The house was recently restored to offer the original look of the 1930s.
