Anne Frank's diary was bought on June 12, 1942 as a gift from her father. Together they bought it at the bookstore around the corner from the Merwedeplein, now Jimmink bookstore.

In 2004, Gert-Jan Jimmink the owner of this bookstore wanted a place of rememberence what happened in the neighberhood during the time of the holocaust. He went to the Amsterdam city district ZuiderAmstel with a large number of citizens' expressions of adhesion for that idea. Here he pleaded for placing a monument on the Merwedeplein in memory of Anne Frank as a symbol of the 13.000 Jews out of this city district “Rivierenbuurt” who where murdered.

The initiative was honored by the Borough Council. The sculptor living in the Rivierenbuurt Jet Schepp was then instructed to create an image.


The monument was unveiled on July 9, 2005 by Mayor Job Cohen.  

First, a minute's silence observed by the district chairman Erik Koldenhof for the people who had been victims of the terrorist attacks in London two days earlier. )*

Then Jacqueline Maarsen (a friend of Anne Frank) spoke. She read a piece from her first book about her first encounter with Anne Frank at the Jewish Lyceum.

Then a Muslim and a Jewish student held in the framework of the project “Second World War in Perspective” a nomination. The Jewish student read the text of the Islamic student and vice versa.

After a speech by sponsor Gert-Jan Jimmink Mayor Job Cohen unveiled the statue.


The 7 July 2005 London bombings (often referred to as 7/7) were a series of coordinated suicide bomb attacks in central London, which targeted civilians using the public transport system during the morning rush hour.

As well as the four bombers, 52 civilians were killed and over 700 more were injured in the attacks, the United Kingdom's worst terrorist incident since the 1988 Lockerbie bombing as well as the country's first ever suicide attack.
