“Adds to the experience”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

After visiting the Anne Frank and becoming more aware of the plight of the Jews in Amsterdam, i wanted to know about the people that helped the Jews avoid the concentration camps. The museum is mostly in Dutch, so one has to read the handout in English. Do read the stories of the babies that were saved and how heartwrenching it must have been for the mothers to give up their children with the hopes of saving them.

It is quite small but it is an invaluable reminder of troubled times which should never be forgotten.

“insight”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

I know every country writes it's own history. If what you see here is true, the Dutch opposed the Nazi regime every step of the way. Lots of informative photos and write ups enlighten the visitor as to how much suffering took place, and how it carried on to the war in the East. It's worth the visit.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

We spent a whole afternoon in this museum - there was so much information to see / read / hear. We felt that as these people had often given their lives for the resistance cause the least we could do was read their stories etc.

It was interestingly exhibited too... some things you had to peer through 'windows' and around corners to see properly, other things were almost interactive - you could tune in the radio to hear different things, listen to the stories of the individuals as you turned the pages of their photo album etc.

A visit is highly recommended
