'Waarom lijn 8 niet meer rijdt', a public storytelling/show on May 2

Performance: Openbare vertelvoorstelling 'Waarom lijn 8 niet meer rijdt' @ de Boekmanzaal Stadhuis Amsterdam, Sunday May 2nd, 14.00, FREE, for ages 11+, reservations not possible only 200 seats, in Dutch.

'Waarom Lijn 8 niet meer rijdt'/ 'why line 8 doesn't exist anymore' is a true story about Amsterdam during the occupation in the WWII. And the life of two women who took Jewish children in their house. It also explains why tram 8 no longer exists, as it was used during the War to transport Jewish people from Hollandsche Schouwburg to Centraal station, and from there to Westerbork. After the War it was decided that tram 8 would not be used again due to its history. The production is developed with help from het Verzetsmuseum Amsterdam.
