Hollandsche Schouwburg in Amsterdam

Hollandsche Schouwburg Amsterdam building

From 1892 until 1941 the Hollandsche Schouwburg was an important theatre in Amsterdam's Plantage neighbourhood. During the Second World War the Nazis requisitioned the theatre as a point of assembly. Nowadays the Hollandsche Schouwburg is a monument.

In the memorial hall 6,700 surnames pay tribute to the 104,000 Jews who were deported from the Netherlands and were killed in the concentration and extermination camps. The educational exhibition caters mainly children and depicts the gradual isolation of the Jews during the Nazi occupation and their progression to the transit camp Westerbork.
