Hollandsche Schouwburg

  Plantage Middenlaan 24 ,   Centrum          (+31) 205 31 03 10     more than a year ago
From 1892 - 1941 the Hollandsche Schouwburg was a popular Dutch theatre, but after the Nazi occupation of Holland it became a segregated Jewish theatre and later a notorious assembly point for mass deportations of people to concentration camps. Today it’s a museum dedicated to the tens of thousands of Amsterdam Jews whose lives were snuffed out during the Holocaust. Inside is an eternal flame surrounded by 6,700 engraved surnames of entire families that were murdered. A door leads out to a stark courtyard memorial to these unfortunate souls. A permanent exhibit that illustrates the persecution of the Jews and the contributions of the Dutch Resistance through photographs, film and documents is available upstairs.
