Hollandsche Schouwburg (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɦɔlɑntsə ˈsxʌubɵrx]; English: Hollandic Theatre) is a museum in Amsterdam in the Netherlands.[3]

History[edit]

Originally, the Hollandsche Schouwburg was a Dutch theatre, but it was deemed as a Jewish theatre in 1941 by Nazi occupiers and it was later used as a deportation center during the Holocaust.[4]
