World War II in The Hague
The Hague was strongly affected by the Second World War. German governing bodies were established in the city. Its Jewish inhabitants were persecuted and deported. You will hear and see this moving story.
I am city guide Jacqueline Alders. During this guided tour I will tell you about this history. You will learn about the impact of the Nazi occupation on the daily life of The Hague’s citizens. About the fate of its Jewish inhabitants, the amount of damage and the growing shortage of food during the ‘hongerwinter’. An unique opportunity to look at The Hague from a totally different perspective.
Yesterday I was guided through The Hague's WW2 history by Jacqueline. This was my second such walking tour. She is very knowledgeable plus generous with her time (it was more than just two hours). I think our group of Hungarians, Chinese, Americans and one sole Australian appreciated her excellent English as well as touches of humour. My previous tour was about eating and drinking in The hague through the centuries plus history (and gossip) about the various kings and queens. All in all, a great guide.
Jacqueline is a fun, relaxed lady with massive knowledge of the city. It was a great pleasure to learn a lot of interesting stuff about our new home during WWII in such a friendly and personal manner. I recommend the walks to everyone!
It was a true pleasure to go on a World War II tour of The Hague with Jacqueline. She is incredibly knowledgeable and I enjoyed the tour from start to finish. It was lovely to meet others in the group from many different countries and I found the time on the tour to be incredibly interesting and thought provoking. It was so nice to walk through the beautiful city of the Hague and learn of the history. A truly wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone.
