Live Virtual Tour:

Second World War in Amsterdam & Jewish Heritage

Second World War in Amsterdam & Jewish Heritage

A virtual tour about the Second World War & Jewish Heritage in Amsterdam, by an Amsterdammer with Jewish roots. Stories about the Second World War, and also the survival story of his own family. After this tour, participants will have a clear picture how the Holocaust in the Netherlands was able to happen, and how this impacted Amsterdam’s culture and the Jewish community. 

What is the tour about?

This live virtual tour takes place in Amsterdam’s old city center and parts of the former Jewish neighborhood. You will learn all about female resistance heroes that helped people in the Second World War, we will pass by a hiding place of a Jewish family and learn how a gay friendly cafe, helped them and the resistance.

We’ll pass by the house of Rembrandt, and the former Jewish flea market, we’ll end the tour at the Portuguese Synagogue, where stories are told of the first razzia that took place, and a famous strike which followed. 

Ofcourse there is always room for questions: during the tour in the comment section, and at the end by audio and/or comment field.

More than a tour….

We are community builders and educators. Our tours have always been more than ‘a walk around town’. We are involved in many social and cultural projects in the old city center of Amsterdam, and we are both local and small entrepeneurs.

We work as a couple, which also gives you the highest live virtual experience: instead of the guide just filming his/her own face, we offer beautiful images, personal stories and very interesting background information.

Depending on the wishes of your group, we have three diferent virtual tours, BUT we also work custom! So if you have any special requests, don’t hesitate to contact us.

 

>> For Educational Tours: if wanted we can offer teachers at colleges and universities, an information pack beforehand,  so they can create a theme day (or test) for their own.
