The Dutch Resistance Museum
The Dutch Resistance Museum is a museum dedicated to the resistance movement in the Netherlands during World War II. While walking through the museum, you will be taken back to the forties. Right after the Germans bombed Rotterdam, the Dutch surrendered, and Nazi’s took over the streets. People were faced with a choice: do we cooperate and do exactly what the Germans say, do we join the Nazi’s and help them or do we join the resistance movement? This question is explored in the Dutch Resistance Museum by showing the lives of people who made different choices. With a primary focus on the resistance. This often extremely dangerous choice made people very creative in stopping the Germans and helping Jews and other groups of people who were hunted down by the Nazi’s.
Collection of the Resistance Museum Amsterdam
The collection of the Resistance Museum Amsterdam consists of artifacts collected from the personal belongings of members of the resistance movement. The exhibition covers all forms of resistance: strikes, forging of documents, helping people to go into hiding, underground newspapers, escape routes, armed resistance, and espionage. You can see strollers with guns hidden in them, forged ID cards, typewriters on which resistance messages were typed and chessboards with hidden compartments. Besides the resistance, you’ll also see what day to day life was like for people who choose to cooperate. What limitations did the occupation put on them and why did some of them decide to join the resistance because of that? Another important part of the Resistance Museum Amsterdam focuses on the Dutch colonial empire, the Dutch East Indies. There the population suffered terribly under the Japanese regime of terror.
