Description

A city, like so many cities in the occupied Netherlands. But with its own unique stories about occupation and liberation. This special tour takes you to various places connected to the occupation and/or liberation of Eindhoven. You will discover buildings that were used by the German occupiers and what these were used for. You will learn about the organisation of the German occupying forces in Eindhoven, hear stories about both collaboration and resistance of the Dutch Goverment and Civil Service in Eindhoven, and the persecution of the Jews. But also the stories, sometimes exciting and sometimes very funny, about the liberation. And the stories about the bombings of this city.
