Interactive panorama Rotterdam
When you think of Rotterdam the Netherlands and the Second World War, you think of the German terror bombing of 14 May 1940. On that date the truce of the indomitable Dutch Marines was broken, and the Netherlands capitulated quickly.
Archive images and current locations
The interactive city viewer shows the visitor the photos from the past in recognizable places of the present. Sporadically, locations can be found that look back on Rotterdam shortly after the battle of the marines and the bombardment of 1940. This modern city viewer tells the story of Rotterdam and the May days of 1940 in combination with the streets of today.
