Trip Report Amsterdam historical walking tour

Jump to last reply

A few weeks ago I took an engaging and somber walking tour of Amsterdam's WWII experience. Ben de Jong, a history professor who recently retired from Amsterdam University, regularly leads a 3-hour walk through the heart of the city. His tour focuses on the Jewish experience during the occupation.

See that park over there where the kids are playing on this fine Saturday morning? Yeah, that's where the Germans assembled their first group of Jews for deportation. See the cute B&B across the canal? Yeah, that's where infamous Dutch collaborators lived. See where you're standing? Yeah, that's where Amsterdam citizens were celebrating liberation when departing German snipers killed them. It was a haunting tour.

The tour costs 25 euro per person. You can arrange one with him through www.historywalks.eu.
