I have done. I went there a few years ago on a visit to Amsterdam. Found it very interesting, almost unbelievable that the family hid there for so long.

^ I'd like to visit, although i imagine it would be very harrowing.

When i was staying with my friend in France last year i was taken to a village that was wiped out by the Nazis in one afternoon. The whole village slaughtered because of resistance activity in the area. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oradour-sur-Glane. It felt very odd being there - almost like i was trespassing somehow.
