Since the end of 16th century, Amstredam has been sanctuary for Jews from Spain and Portugal and from the Central and Eastern Europe. Through the centuries in Amsterdam lived around half of all Dutch Jews. Their influence in this town is very strong and nowadays Amsterdam has a thriving Jewish community.

From the start they established themselves in the area around the Jodenbreestraat. In the course of World War II this area was made into a ghetto by the Germans. They raised a big fence around the area and many bridges remained open permanently, so the inhabitants could only enter and leave the area at certain points. During many raids the inhabitants were taken away. After the war, this once vibrant and lively area had turned into a sad, abandoned, and neglected area.
