What you can expect

During my 2,5 hours walking tour we will recall the WWII history that took place in Amsterdam during the worlds biggest conflict. You will learn about the Nazis invasion despite Hollands proclaimed neutrality status, how the society copied with the occupation, the Jews persecution, the role of the Dutch resistance, the results of collaboration.

I will describe you the Dutch famine during the winter 1944/45, the Dam square shooting just 2 days after the German capitulation and eventually the allies arrival and the liberation.

An intriguing tour for history enthusiasts. Tour can be customized and combined with museums visits (incl purchase of Museums tickets)
