Fodor's Review

Established in 1945, this institute has collected vast archives of documents, newspapers, 100,000 photos, and 50,000 books relating to the occupation of World War II. This is where Otto Frank donated his daughter Anne's diary. More recently, the institute has expanded to cover the period between World War I to the present day, with particular emphasis on the former colony Dutch East Indies (Indonesia). In the NIOD merged with the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies. The combined collections are increasingly being digitized and available online. The reading room is open to everyone; you just need to fill in a form at the reception area. For viewing sensitive documents for academic or family-related research, however, you must submit a request, either at reception or by telephoning. Requests are generally processed within a day. The French Renaissance–style exterior was inspired by France's famed Château de Chenonceau.
