About the Tour

On this route we will dive into the history of Amsterdam's Jewish community and its persecution during the German occupation in the Second World War. You will discover with us the most iconic spots along the area where the Dutch Jewish community was mainly based in (the Portuguese synagogue, the Waterloo square, the Ashkenazi synagogue...). And we will take a deeper look at the different strategies that part of the Dutch society developed to undermine the occupation from within. From the Resistance Museum to the Anne Frank house, where the tour will end, we will learn how the city pays tribute to the fallen in the fight against fascism and keeps alive the memory of what happened.

Highlights:

- Auschwitzmonument.

- Portuguese Synagogue and Jewish Historical Museum.

- Waterloo square.

- Homomonument.

- Anne Frank's house (tickets not included).

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: In front of the Resistance Museum (Plancius Building) with an open blue umbrella

Ha sido mucho más que excelente. Tuvimos en Enrique un guía excepcional, que se tomó casi 3 horas que resultaron cortas, para un recorrido que nos hizo conocer, disfrutar, aprender y por sobre todo, emocionar hasta las lágrimas. Un free tour, que no tiene precio, que ni siquiera es un tour, sino que toda una experiencia de vida. Gracias !!
