Today is the remembrance of the killed Dutch in WWII.
At eight PM the whole country will be silent for 2 minutes.
Here on the Nieuwe Keizersgracht, also called the shadow quai, is a little monument. You find the names and numbers of the houses on the other side from which 200 Jews were deported in WWII by the germans.
Its a stunning long list.
Just one of the many.
From the 140.000 jews ( only in Amsterdam lived 75.000) 107.000 didn't survive the war. Furthermore 7.900 military and 88.900 dutch citizens also didn't made it.
