The Hollandsche Schouwburg used to be a popular theater before World War II broke out.
During the Nazi occupation the theater was used as a gathering station for Jews to be transported to the concentration camps.
After the war, the building became a permanent monument of the deportation of the Jews in the Netherlands.
Inside is a commmemoration wall with 6,700 family names of the families that were deported.
