You’ll see, hear and read fascinating stories about the exceptional and sometimes heroic deeds as well as Dutch daily life during that period. Learn about ordinart people doing extraordinary things in turbulent times. What would you do as an official under occupation? You are being told to give orders you disagree with, but if you resign, you know they’ll replace you with a nazi… Gear up for an emotional and thought provoking tour.
