About the tour

On this route we will dive into the history of Amsterdam's Jewish community and its persecution during the German occupation in the Second World War. You will discover with us the most iconic spots along the area where the Dutch Jewish community was mainly based in (the Portuguese synagogue, the Waterloo square, the Ashkenazi synagogue...). And we will take a deeper look at the different strategies that part of the Dutch society developed to undermine the occupation from within. From the Resistance Museum to the Anne Frank house, where the tour will end, we will learn how the city pays tribute to the fallen in the fight against fascism and keeps alive the memory of what happened.

Highlights:

- Auschwitzmonument.

- Portuguese Synagogue and Jewish Historical Museum.

- Waterloo square.

- Homomonument.

- Anne Frank's house (tickets not included).

Un tour muy recomendable sobre todo si podéis enlazarlo, como fue mi caso, con la visita a la casa de Anna Frank. La guía fue Laura, muy maja, nos resolvió todas las dudas que nos fueron surgiendo durante el tour.

Increible tour, nos ha encantado, super recomendado. Se notaba que la guia Paula estaba disfrutando tanto como nosotros del tour. Nos ha hecho el recorrido con muchisima informacion de manera super amena por lo tanto lo hemos entendido todo. Un tour 10/10 que nos ha hecho enamorarnos un poquito mas de la ciudad. Si venis a Amsterdam este recorrido es una actividad obligatoria!
