The Hollandsche Schouwburg. Photo: Ruud van ZwetThe Hollandsche Schouwburg was built as a theatre in 1892, but during the Second World War it was a deportation centre for Jews. Today, the building is a monument to the memory of those victims. In 1992, the Hollandsche Schouwburg came under the management of the JHM. At that time, the Hollandsche Schouwburg Foundation was established, and since then the mayor of Amsterdam has always served as its chairman. The monument contains a memorial wall, bearing the 6,700 family names of the 104,000 Dutch Jewish victims of the Second World War, and an educational exhibition for young people. In the coming years, the Hollandsche Schouwburg will be thoroughly renovated and expanded.
