Hidden Rooms and Secret Passageways
OriginsDuring the holocaust there are stories of entire Jewish families having to take to hidden rooms to hide from the Nazi’s. Families of 8 people all living in a tiny space between floors where the slightest noise or rumble could spell disaster. The Frank family, led by Otto Frank, left the family apartment in a state of disarray, a note on the kitchen table hinted that they had left for Switzerland. In reality they had withdrawn to the “Achterhuis”, a secret, three story annex at the rear of the house where the entrance was concealed by a book case. Imagine living in a cramped space for over 2 years, in constant fear of being caught, not being able to even cough without the chance of someone hearing you and being found out.
Do It Yourself
So what would you do with a new hidden room? Use it as a high security panic room, a safe room for your valuables and collectables, somewhere to hide away from the daily grind of life or even a fantasy ‘playroom’ a la 50 shades of grey?
