The National Holocaust Museum opens on March 11, 2024. It will be the first and only museum on the persecution of Jews in the Netherlands. It tells a story of exclusion, persecution and murder – but also of salvation, survival and solidarity.

Historic importance

Renovations are underway on the former Dutch Reformed Church teacher training school on the Plantage Middenlaan, in Amsterdam. This building is of major historic importance because during the war, hundreds of Jewish children were smuggled to safety from the daycare center next door to this building, then to various safehouses. The National Holocaust Museum will open its doors here in 2024. Permanent and temporary exhibitions, events and educational programs will tell the story of the persecutions of Jews in the Netherlands.

Victims and responsibility

Visitors will learn how the Holocaust could happen, about its victims and perpetrators. Most importantly, the museum teaches us how to prevent it all from happening again. Authentic artefacts and locations emphasize this building’s importance during the war, like the spot where children were handed over to members of the Dutch resistance. This is where the rescue really began.

Discrimination

The National Holocaust Museum commemorates the victims of the Holocaust and discusses the consequences of indifference and discrimination, in both the past and present.

Together, the National Holocaust Museum, Jewish Museum, Portuguese Synagogue and Hollandsche Schouwburg make up the Jewish Cultural Quarter. The admission ticket is valid for all these locations for one month. The Hollandsche Schouwburg and National Holocaust Museum are temporarily closed for renovations.
