Hollandse Schouwburg

The Hollandse Schouwburg was Amsterdam’s premier venue for concerts and shows before the Nazis occupied Holland in 1940.  By 1942 it was turned into a detention and deportation center for Amsterdam’s Jews.  Most who went through the Schouwburg would end being transported to Auschwitz and Sobibor.
