Genocide aims to destroy a group of people. The Nazis set out to exterminate all European Jews. Their actions were not limited to adults; they targeted children as well. Eighteen thousand Jewish children from the Netherlands alone were murdered. The Jewish Crèche in Amsterdam, across the street from the Hollandsche Schouwburg, housed thousands of children awaiting deportation. Almost 600 of them were saved thanks to the collaboration of the Jewish child care workers, members of the Jewish Council, and various resistance groups.
