Can You Guess Why This Amsterdam Tourist Magnet Bakery Had To Change Its Name?

A bakery in the Dutch capital Amsterdam that had become a tourist magnet shortly after opening a few weeks ago will be forced to change its name after locals said it was ‘tasteless’ to try and lure in unknowing tourists near the Anne Frank’s house with a bakery called "Anne & Frank."

Several expressed fierce criticism over the ‘bakery’ and ‘oven’ references that were being made online. The bakery had opened near the Anne Frank’s house drew a crowd from the lines of people that visit the world-famous place.

Critics said it was "tasteless" for the owner, named only as Roberto, to link his Dutch business to the world-famous Holocaust victim.

Roberto, who didn’t want his last name revealed, was quoted as saying "it seemed like a nice name to me," adding that Anne Frank, who died in a concentration camp, "is a hero for me too."

A tweet from a local journalist who goes by the Twitter name “Drukke Toestand” (busy condition), and who follows Amsterdam news, said "even if the owners had been called Anne and Frank it would still be shocking".

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="nl" dir="ltr">Bakkerij? Ze verkopen brood en broodjes en toeristeneten zoals stroopwafels en dingen met klompen en molens. Achterin kan je zitten. <br>Toeristenfuik? En of!<br>Vlak bij Anne Frank huis? Nee! <br>Waar?

The Anne Frank House is one of the most visited sights for tourists to Amsterdam. It documents the suffering of Jews during Nazi Germany's occupation of the Netherlands in World War Two and tickets are reserved months in advance.

Roberto told Dutch media he would change the name. "I'll have a good think about it," he said. "It wasn't my intention to offend anyone."

The Diary of Anne Frank is a global bestselling book which highlights how the girl died of typhus in the Nazi camp of Bergen-Belsen in 1945 just before the British Army forces liberated it. Thousands of emaciated bodies were lying there, many of them Jewish who had been forced to march there from other Nazi camps.

first of all The Anne Frank diary was a forgery and hoax. secondly; hitler did NOT gas the stinking, lying jews. watch: " Questioning The Holocaust Why We Believed " …. also watch David Cole's (yes he's a jew) videos outing the holocaust lies.
