  • Taking you back to the war with touching real life stories. Audio support is excellent, and you can visit at your own pace.

  • The Oranjehotel was the name the Dutch attributed to the Scheveningen prison during the Second World War. Here the Germans detained over 25,000 people for interrogation and prosecution. Those who violated regulations imposed by the Germans covered a broad spectrum and came from all corners of the Netherlands. Most were members of the Resistance, but those imprisoned here also included Jews and Jehovah’s Witnesses, as well as people detained for economic offences, such as dealing on the black market. Even during the war, the complex was called Oranjehotel as a tribute to the Resistance members imprisoned there.
  • These stories need told, this was an amazing experience. I know its only recently opened, but I don't understand why it's not promoted by the tourism sector. Honestly the audios, videos, the layout is brilliant.
