Resistance through their eyes
Starting from February 2024 (exact start date to be announced).
Nearly 80 years after the end of World War II, Resistance through Their Eyes brings international resistance stories to Amsterdam. The importance of safeguarding human rights and combating all forms of discrimination takes centre stage in the youth events organised during the exhibition.
The Netherlands in World War II
During the period from May 1940 to May 1945, Nazi Germany occupied the Netherlands, and this left many Dutch people with challenging choices to make. The stories of individuals who lived through this difficult time are both emotional and personal, and they give a glimpse into what it was like to live in occupied Netherlands.
