GIDS SLAVERNIJVERLEDEN AMSTERDAM / AMSTERDAM SLAVERY HERITAGE GUIDE
Dienke Hondius & Annemarie de Wildt
Did you know that the Society of Suriname met at Amsterdam City Hall, the current Royal Palace on Dam Square? Many Amsterdammers invested in the VOC, in the West India Company and in the plantations in Surinam and the Antilles. Where was this visible in the city? Much happened behind closed doors and much happened overseas, out of sight. But much can still be found today. The current residence of Amsterdam’s mayor on the Herengracht was once the home of slave trader Paulus Godin.
This guide takes you to more than 100 sites. You’ll never look at the gables the same way.
