Museum 1940 - 1945

The position of the city of Dordrecht in May 1940 was unique and strategically important, partly because of its strategic location and the important rail and road bridges at Moerdijk and Zwijndrecht, both during the German invasion and during the German occupation. At the impending liberation of the south of the country in late 1944 and during the Allied advance the position of Dordrecht as a front city was of great strategic importance.

This was partly a reason for the founding of the Museum 1940 – 1945. The aim was to establish a museum that keeps the memory of the years 1939 to 1945 alive to inform current and future generations.
