About the tour

During the five-year Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, the majority of Dutch citizens survived by cooperating with their occupiers. Lay low, follow orders, wait it out, survive... Approximately 5% of the population, however, could not simply turn a blind eye as their fellow Amsterdammers were sent off to work in German factories, or much worse – to an extermination camp. What would YOU have done in that time, considering all the risks? On this tour, we consider various points of view and cover the main questions regarding the Dutch resistance. Who participated and how many were saved? What were the outcomes of various resistance attempts? What effects do the actions of the past have on current society? We will visit numerous unlikely locations where heroic acts occurred by regular people risking everything, from mass uprisings to individual acts of compassion.


Meet Lee

Lee

Lee is a Dutch-Canadian who's worked as a professional guide and boat captain since 2009. Originally trained as a ballet dancer, she left the stage to travel the world, having visited over 100 countries so far, dancing, teaching and volunteering along the way. Among her most memorable experience was an extended tour through North Korea! As much as she loves exploring different cultures around the globe, she's just as happy at home in her favourite city, and can't wait to share with Heygoers all the reasons why Amsterdam is so amazing! Having joined countless tours along her travels and having led over 3,500 tours of her own, Lee has learned what makes a tour unforgettable . Her tours are carefully researched and not only cover detailed Dutch history and culture, but also fun facts, hidden gems, and tips on where to find the best shops, markets and food!

Always good to learn something. Historical facts fade if not passed on or are presented in the best possible light, rather than truthfully. Lee did an awesome job of presenting the topic, not avoiding the hard parts. Thanks!!
