Take your time to look around you. 

It is early May 1945. Canadian troops are nearing the city that is currently awakening from a long famine winter. 

Before reaching Amsterdam, Canadian forces must be provided with intelligence, as to the conditions within the city and any pockets of German activity that they might encounter. As a resistance operative, you have been selected to infiltrate the sealed-off, German-controlled Amsterdam ghetto and report back with any information that might be useful.
