Hollandsche Schouwburg in Amsterdam
Plantage Middenlaan 24, 1018 DE Amsterdam
Nowadays the Hollandsche Schouwburg is a monument that pays tribute to the 104,000 Jews who were deported from the Netherlands. From 1892 until 1941 the Hollandsche Schouwburg was a theatre in Amsterdam's Plantage neighbourhood. During the Second World War the Nazis requisitioned the theatre as a point of assembly.
Anne Frank House in Amsterdam
Prinsengracht 267, 1016 GV Amsterdam
A hidden annex of Amsterdam canal house, where two Jewish families hid from persecution by the Nazis from July 6, 1942 until their betrayal in August 4, 1944, is one of the most popular visiting places in Amsterdam. It is here that Anne Frank, only 15 years old at the moment of her death in the German concentration camp Bergen-Belsen, wrote her famous diary. You may visit the modest hiding rooms of the annex, but also see an original of the diary and an exhibition about the time of hatred brought on people by the Nazis.
