Description

Learn the history of Amsterdam during the dark days of World War II on a private, half-day walking tour. Meet your guide by the Anne Frank statue near the Westerkerk in the Jordaan district on the bank of the Prinsengracht canal. A private guide will tell you how, on 15 May 1940, German troops invaded Amsterdam, claiming many thousands of lives in the next 5 years of occupation. Learn what daily life was like under German occupation, and about those that formed the resistance, or collaborated. Hear about the Hunger Winter of 1944-1945 and the persecution and deportation of Amsterdam's Jews to the concentration camps. See all the significant wartime monuments and locations, such as the Monument to Jewish Resistance, the Auschwitz Monument in Wertheimpark and the Hollandsche Schouwburg where relatives and survivors can recollect and remember their loved ones. Your guide will also describe how Amsterdam recovered after the war and how the Jewish community rebuilt their lives and culture. The interesting and emotional tour shows how, 70 years after liberation, Amsterdam retains the scars of what happened in those dark years.
