Amsterdam urged to buy Jewish home

Historians are urging Amsterdam city council to buy a house in Amsterdam Zuid where one room is virtually unchanged since the Jewish family who lived there was deported to concentration camps in 1942.

‘Most of the authentic elements have gone from Anne Frank’s house, but this one looks as it did when the family lived here,’ Amsterdam University’s Rob van der Laarse told Trouw.
The building is currently owned by a property developer.
