About this trip

Known as a progressive and open minded city, GCSE and A-Level religious studies students will revel in a school trip to Amsterdam to learn all about the thriving Jewish community in the early 20th Century. Take your class to the Dutch capital and follow an alternative story of Jewish life in occupied Europe.

Religious studies trips include exploring the Jewish district of Amsterdam and getting into the detail of the city's museums and religious buildings. Classes can learn about the capital's religious history but also enjoy what else the city has to offer with varied cultural activities.

Educational Visits In Amsterdam

Other Study Visits

  • The Dutch Resistance Museum
    The Dutch Resistance Museum, chosen as the best historical museum of the Netherlands, tells the story of the Dutch people in World War II. How did Dutch people respond to the Nazi occupation? Who resisted? Why, and how? You’ll see, hear and read fascinating stories about the exceptional, as well as about everyday life.
  • Kamp Vught
    Kamp Vught was the only official SS Concentration Camp in occupied North West Europe. It was re-opened as a National Memorial in 2002 after extensive renovations. Although the museum is only a fraction of the former concentration camp, it still is an impressive place to visit. A prisoner's barrack, three watch towers and the original fencing, as well as the cell 115 - where the bunker tragedy took place - have been reconstructed.
  • Corrie Ten Boom Museum
    The Ten Boom family were devout Christians who opened their home to those hunted by the Nazis. The exhibition will take you back in time and delivers a poignant story of hope and resistance. Visitors can see first hand the ‘hiding place’ behind a false wall, where 4 Jews and 2 Dutch resistance fighters hid from the Gestapo.
