Description

The Hollandsche Schouwburg served as a wartime deportation center. Jews from Amsterdam and the surrounding areas received a call-up notice to report to the theatre and were held there for hours, days and sometimes weeks on end. Shut off from the outside world, they awaited transport to the transit camps Vugt or Westerbork. A place of intense sorrow, the Hollandsche Schouwburg has served as a Holocaust memorial site for Jewish victims of the Nazi persecution in the Netherlands since 1962. On the other hand, the National Holocaust Museum (in development) – now housed in the former Hervormde Kweekschool adjacent to the creche – was once a place where lives were saved. Here, with the help of various student resistance groups, more than 600 children from the creche were smuggled via that building to relative safety. Several escape routes were devised and put into effect. The unique story of how these children survived will be told here. In addition, visitors are acquainted with the history of the Holocaust through the museum’s temporary exhibitions including artwork and original objects as well as eye-witness accounts. On this historical location in Amsterdam, the permanent National Holocaust Museum is currently in the process of development, with a permanent retrospective exhibition about the Jews in the Netherlands during the Holocaust. A JCQ-Ticket will give you access to 5 locations in the Jewish Cultural Quarter. Besides the Hollandsche Schouwburg and National Holocaust Museum, you can visit the Jewish Historical Museum with its Children's Museum and the impressive 17th century Portuguese Synagogue.
