National Holocaust Memorial (Hollandsche Schouwburg) Tours

4 reviews
The Hollandsche Schouwburg, once an historic theatre, is a Jewish war memorial in Amsterdam's Plantage district that commemorates the many Jews deported from Amsterdam during WWII. The building, which was constructed in 1892, was used as a theater for many years during. During the German occupation of Amsterdam in 1942-1943, the theater was used as a deportation center, where Jews from Amsterdam and the surrounding areas were held before being taken to Dutch transit camps and eventually to concentration camps in Germany.

In the early 1960s, an obelisk that serves as a monument and a place for reflection was erected near the former theater stage to honor the memory of the thousands of people who were held there awaiting their terrible fate. Inside the building, there is a chapel with an eternal flame and a wall where the names of many Dutch Jewish families who lost suffered are inscribed. Upstairs, on the first floor, there is an exhibition space that chronicles the persecution of Dutch Jews. The exhibit has photos, videos, and some personal items.
