Fries Verzetsmuseum (Frisian Resistance Museum)

Ruiterskwartier 92 | 8911 BP Leeuwarden | +31 58 255 5500 |
A special part of the Frisian Museum. Frisians and non-Frisians tell how they have experienced the war here. Occupation and persecution, but no famine. “De overval”, one of the most important resistance actions in our history. What was World War II like in Friesland? Meet Harmen Attema from Stiens and the suitcase he takes when he is forced to work in Germany. Or the children of Roelof Horrëus de Haas and their homemade toys. For them, the hiding period during the war felt like one big vacation. The Frisian Resistance Museum is part of the Frisian Museum (het Fries Museum).
