25 Feb - IWalk 'Jewish Resistance in Amsterdam'
Walk with Oy Vey and learn about Jewish resistance in Amsterdam
Walk with Oy Vey! The yearly commemoration of the February strike of 1941 tends to focus on Dutch resistance fighters and Jewish victims, ignoring the stories of Jewish resistance. It’s time to change that! Come and walk with Oy Vey member Mari, the creator of the IWalk ‘Jewish resistance in Amsterdam’, and discover untold stories with the help of video testimonies from Holocaust survivors.
Languages: Dutch and English
The February Strike is seen by many as the first public protest against Nazi occupation in Europe. It was a protest against the pogroms in Jewish neighborhoods of Amsterdam and promoted by the Dutch communist party, which had been made illegal by the German occupiers. 300,000 people took part in the demonstration, which was the only mass protest against the deportation of Jews in all of Europe. We’ll learn more about the strike and Jewish resistance to Nazi occupation on this walk together, led by Oy Vey member Mari.
When it’s over you can join the commemoration of the February Strike.
