Amsterdam History of the Second World War tour

Amsterdam, at the time of World War II, had a particularly large Jewish community living mainly in the districts of Crash and Waterlooplein. About 75% of them were killed during the war, a much higher percentage than the other countries involved in the conflict.

The population, at the end of 1944, suffered a long period of hunger and famine known as the "Hunger Winter". On May 1945 the surrender of Germany finally liberated all the country.
