In the sixties this was my highschool in Amsterdam. During World War II it was a headquarter of the SD, the notorious German Police. Very bad things has happened in the building, especially in the cellars people had been tortured. In 1944 the building was bombed and partly damaged.
I had a very nice schooltime, as a teenager you enjoy, but I was aware of the history. With schoolparty's in the cellar I always felt rather uncomfortable.
