Opposite the Hollandsche Schouwburg in the Jewish Cultural Quarter is the National Holocaust Museum. This building, once a teachers’ training college, was used by resistance workers during World War II to smuggle some 600 children out of captivity and get them to relatively safe hiding places. This historic site hosts temporary exhibitions that tell the story of the Holocaust: it is a story of exclusion, of persecution and murder, but also of rescues, survival, and solidarity.
