Hollandsche Schouwburg

Once a grand theatre, the Hollandsche Schouwburg played a dark role in Amsterdam's history when it became the main deportation centre for Jews during the Holocaust. The Hollandsche Schouwburg now serves as a monument to honour the Dutch Jews who were killed in the Second World War. Memorial centre: Starting from 1942, it is estimated that between 60,000 to 80,000 Jews were assembled here before being transported to the Westerbork transit camp. The Hollandsche Schouwburg houses an educational exhibition and a memorial centre listing the names of the dead, and an eternal flame burns to honour the 104,000 Dutch Jews who were exterminated in World War II.
