AMSTERDAM — The museum built around a secret annex in a canal-side house where Anne Frank hid from Nazis during World War II has been renovated to better tell the teenage Jewish diarist's tragic story to a new generation of visitors who may know little about the horrors of the Holocaust.

It's not just the buildings that have been renovated. The museum also has revamped the way it tells the story of the Frank family, and by extension the Nazi persecution of Jews.

Museum official Tom Brink said Wednesday the aim is to "use the family history as kind of a window onto a larger history."

What hasn't changed is the museum's moving centerpiece: the Spartan secret annex where Anne wrote her world-famous diary.
