3D virtual tour of Anne Frank’s Secret Annex

To mark the 50th anniversary, the Anne Frank Museum has launched a virtual tour of the house where the 13 year old penned the most famous diary in history, hiding from the Nazis during World War II. The amazing reconstruction allows visitors to explore the entire house as well as the garden in three-dimension while a voiceover gives you a description of what you are seeing.

A bunch of extra features, including text and films are available to show the teenager's incarceration as it was.

The Anne Frank Museum, the house where Anne Frank and her family actually spent in hiding, was officially opened in 1960 to visitors from around the world. From the outset the museum attracted a huge amount of interest, especially as translations and dramatizations of the Diary had made her a figure known throughout the world. In 2007 alone, over a million people visited the museum.

  1. While in Amsterdam I had "visited" the Anne Frank Museum. I remember having felt troubled, confused by so many visitors visiting ... this is so much more, so much else than a museum, and 'The Secret Annex Online' has moved me much more deeply than when I was actually among those walls of love and tragedy, perhaps because conditions of "meditation" are more properly offered on this website. I remain deeply moved, and revolted.

  2. The diary itself is quite moving, to say the least. I can only imagine what visiting the house would feel like.

  3. The thought of what this girl had been threw is horrifying.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event.

However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run.
