History of Holland during the Nazi occupation told in personalized stories as well as general outlines. Describes the difficult choices of flight, hiding, collaboration, resistance, or doing nothing faced by individuals. Special attention to the plight of Jews and the Holocaust in the country. Also a special area for current school kids to better understand what happened. Finally, there's even a section about the Japanese conquest of the Dutch East Indies and how Indonesia finally achieved independence in 1949. Well written signage in Dutch and English make this a memorable visit.

good insight into the Dutch's struggle during WWII. There is an abundance of information, allow plenty of time to complete. Maybe best to do first thing in the morning, as we found it quite tiring taking in so many facts.

They have done a fine job of portraying life in the Netherlands leading up to and during the Nazi invasion/occupation. The displays and content draw you in at a personal level, challenging you to imagine the difficult choices and bravery of the Dutch during this terrible time in their history.

For the true Amsterdam experience, you must live in Holland before, during and after the Nazi occupation. If you spend a couple of hours here, you will leave with some of this experience; the horror, the courage, the frustration, the hope, the perseverence, the difficult decisions and the sacrifices of hundreds of people. Here are well-documented life stories that you may find incredible, inspiring or hard to understand yet the stories are real and reflect the greater story of human survival.

This museum was included on our iAmsterdam card, but we would have gone there anyway. I had no idea how much the Dutch suffered during the Second World War, and how much they tried to resist the Nazis. Explanations were in English and Dutch, a little small occasionally, but well laid out. Very moving and interesting.
