National Holocaust Memorial
The main aim of the Hollandsche Schouwburg (Dutch Theatre) is to keep alive the history of this building and its monument. We wish in particular to remember what happened here during the Second World War, in the years 1940 to 1945. Since the interior of the Theatre was re-organized in 1993, the Hollandsche Schouwburg has been seen as a place of education as well as a memorial. For survivors of the Second World War and their families the Hollandsche Schouwburg plays an important part in the ongoing process of coming to terms with the unspeakable events of the war. The permanent exhibition and the teaching programs bring the past into the present and show how relevant it is for young people today.
