Suddenly, it’s there. Overnight, an imposing structure appears in one of the Netherlands’ busiest public squares. Not knowing what to expect, passers-by enter The Bunker and are transported to 1942, into the heart of World War II. Several spaces within reveal the daily lives of four fellow Dutch citizens during the conflict. What moral dilemmas did they face? What difficult decisions were they forced to make? By popping up in a local setting, The Bunker reaches beyond the museum market to communicate with a new audience. Based on real-life survivor stories, the project elicits a strong emotional response and helps the younger public to understand the importance of history.
