Overview

The Hollandsche Schouwburg is a monument remembering Dutch Jews killed during World War II. From 1892 until 1941, this theater was an important venue. In 1942, the Nazis requisitioned the theater as a point of assembly. Between sixty and eighty thousand people were brought here for deportation to the transit camp Westerbork and since 1962, this building has served as a monument. In the memorial hall, 6700 surnames are displayed to pay tribute to the 104,000 Jews who were deported from the Netherlands and killed in the camps. On the first floor, there is an exhibition about the German occupation.
