Amsterdam: Former City Registry Office

Former City Registry Office. On March 27, 1943, a group of resistance fighters tried to destroy the city registers to keep the Nazi occupation forces from using the information on the citizens of Amsterdam. Unfortunately, the records were packed together too tightly to burn. Twelve of the resistance group were captured and executed.
