4 (9 ratings)
Quest image more than 2
Not long after Germany invaded the Netherlands in May of 1940, the Jewish Quarter of Amsterdam was closed off from the outside world. Until Canadian forces liberated the city five years later. 

Only very few of the inhabitants who were living there at the beginning of the War ever returned from the camps. However, the Plantage neighbourhood, instead, is known primarily for its stories of resistance.

What was it like on the day the Canadians finally arrived and the city was liberated?

Take your time to look around you. It is early May 1945. Canadian troops are nearing the city of Amsterdam that is currently awakening from a long famine winter. 

Before entering, Canadian forces must be provided with intelligence as to the conditions within the city.
