Full description
You'll meet your guide and small group (depending on the option selected) on Westermarkt for a walking tour to understand the Jewish presence in Amsterdam before and during World War II. Hear the insightful story of Anne Frank and her family dynamics, including their move from Germany, their time in hiding, and her father's life after the war.

Cross the city center from west to east and find the locations that mattered during the five years of Nazi-occupation in Amsterdam between May 1940 and May 1945. Your expert guide's narration will introduce you to several people that played their role during these dire years. Walk by the Amsterdam canals into the medieval center and hear about the Dutch Resistance during the war. Before exploring Dam Square, the backdrop for the annual ceremony on National Memorial Day. Join the Royal Family and the army in an insightful remembrance, and learn about this part of history in Amsterdam.

Walking towards the eastern part of the city center, the accent of the tour shifts more towards the Jewish community in Amsterdam. Before the German invasion, Amsterdam had a thriving Jewish community. The Holocaust had a tremendous impact on Amsterdam, and your guides will tell you the story of the former Jewish district during the months of the Holocaust. You'll later end your tour at the Hollandsche Schouwburg, a former theater transformed by the Nazis as a detention center for Jews. Today it houses the National Holocaust Memorial, a place of reflection and mourning.
