Verzetsmuseum (Dutch Resistance Museum)
1 Comment on “Verzetsmuseum (Dutch Resistance Museum)”
The Verzetsmuseum is an important and instructive place, with a focused exhibition. I’ve had the chance to see it a couple of years ago, and can recommend it to anyone visiting Amsterdam. The museum is not too big — it will take only a few hours from your schedule, but you’ll see plenty of things to chew over.
It’s good to see that the presentation received a facelift. Some of the panels were blemished by inaccurate translations and some typographic stereotypes. In the diagram below, the Dutch administration system is shown in a “normal” (i.e. roman) typeface (Belwe – actually a 1910s/1920s German design), while a blackletter (Old English, with roots in William Caslon’s design from the 18th century) is used for the system under German occupation.
