Be Brave!

The February Strike took place exactly 80 years ago in the Netherlands. Willem, Coba and Joop were three Amsterdammers who played an active role in this unique resistance to the persecution of the Jews. They were brave, but what price did they pay? And what price did their loved ones have to pay? Discover the stories in Be brave!, available as VR-experience and in the museum as soon as we can reopen.
