WW2 and Resistance in Jewish Amsterdam: The Plantage

4 (11 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?

  • Explore the sites that tell of occupation, but also of survival and resistance.

  • From the Holocaust Memorial to the elegant Dutch Theatre that became a deportation centre, to the site of a home for the elderly that became a clinic where forced sterilizations took place during the occupation.


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. 

As a resistance operative, you have been selected to infiltrate the sealed-off, German-controlled Amsterdam Jewish District - the Ghetto - and report back with any information that might be useful for Allies.
