THE FRONT FACING THE STREET Most people, including the employees who worked in the building, thought the building looked like this.
THE FRONT FACING THE STREET
The Layout of the Building from the back ; the garden view This level was part of the business only. This level was also part of the business, but the members of the annex often used it during non- business hours. This level was used by the Frank’s and Pfeffer as a bedroom. The bathroom was also on this level. This level was used as the van Pels’ bedroom, kitchen, and dining area. The attic was mainly used for storage.
The Entrance of the Secret Annex Up the stairs from the private office there was a landing with a bookcase to the left, and storerooms to the right. This was no ordinary bookcase though. It was hinged like a door and opened up to another door. The Secret Annex was behind both of these “doors.”
The Bookcase Leading to the Secret Annex
The First Floor A steep flight of stairs was right behind the bookcase and door. This led to the room that was used as Mr., Mrs., and Margot Frank’s bedroom at night and the main living area during the day. Anne and Pfeffer’s bedroom was also on this floor. This is where Anne’s desk was and where she wrote most of her famous diary. All eight people used the one bathroom that was accessible from the living room and Anne’s bedroom.
