AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS

The Hollandsche Schouwburg (the Dutch Theatre) was a collecting point and deportation centre for Jews. The theatre was situated in the old Jewish quarter of Amsterdam. The unfortunate people were transported to Westerbork camp in Holland, and from there to death camps.

In 1962 this site was designated as a war memorial, in remembrance of the Jews who perished under the Nazi regime.

The theatre auditorium has been replaced by an open courtyard with an obelisk where the theatre stage once stood. The entrance hall leads into a memorial chapel where an eternal flame burns. Engraved on the Wall of Remembrance you can read the names of more than 100,000 victims who never return
