We have been working on 'Names not Numbers' / 'Geen nummers maar Namen'. Dutch political prisoners in Dachau Concentration Camp during World War II. The opening was presented by His Majesty the King Willem-Alexander.
More than 2,000 Dutch citizens, mainly political prisoners, were detained in Dachau Concentration Camp between 1941 and 1945. When they entered the camp, they were given a number, and their name no longer mattered. From 23 April through 25 October 2015, the Amsterdam Resistance Museum (Verzetsmuseum Amsterdam) will be devoting some much deserved attention to the people behind the numbers in the exhibition Names, not numbers. Dutch political prisoners in Dachau Concentration Camp. And in cooperation with Amnesty International, we will also be highlighting the plight of political prisoners today. The main exhibition is based on the biographies written by a number of Dutch school students
