Jews and the House of Orange



Jews and the House of Orange. 400 eventful years

From April 18th to September 30th 2018, the Jewish Historical Museum presents the exhibition Jews and the House of Orange. 400 eventful years. The exhibition elucidates the relationship between the House of Orange and the Jewish community.

This relationship began in the seventeenth century. Around this time, rich Portuguese Jews came to the Dutch Republic. Because they lent money to the regents a friendship developed. In the eighteenth century they fully supported the House of Orange. In the eyes of the Jews, the Orange meant freedom, protection and tolerance. There was a lot of love and loyalty for the Orange. Even though there was also a period in which the Jews were disappointed in de House.

After the Second World War the relationship diminished. A large number of jews claimed that the Royal House had not done enough to protect them during the war. But after the seventies the relationship started to recover gradually. You can also experience how the relationship currently is in the exhibition.

The bond between the House of Orange and the Jews is illustrated by means of more than 100 objects, consisting of artworks, books, paintings, photographs, furniture and more.
