Amsterdam: Plaque near the Hollandsche Schouwburg

Commemorative plaque. When the Hollandsche Schouwburg was used as a deportation point, children of those who had assembled there were lodged in a kindergarten across the street. Rescuers were able to save some of the children by hiding behind the tram which passed the kindergarten and smuggling the children to a school two houses down the road. The kindergarten building no longer exists, but this plaque has been placed on the building which now occupies the site of the former kindergarten.
