Anne Frank's Bells


This is the Westerkerk ("West Church") in Amsterdam, NL; it is not quite a block from the Anne Frank House on the Prinsengracht (Prince's Canal.)  Anne could see a sliver of the bell tower from her hiding place, and could hear the bells.  She mentioned it frequently in her diary.  There is a memorial statue of her in front of the church.  It's also the final resting place of Rembrandt van Rijn, the Dutch Master painter.
