Amsterdam and Slavery


The Amsterdam City Archive developed the new website to mark the abolition of slavery 150 years ago. There are inventories and order lists for slaves on the website and documents like reports of revolts, all of which can be found in the City Archive. You can also type your surname in to see if there is information about your own family history. The exhibition Amsterdam and Slavery display eight documents from the City Archive which bear witness to this painful history.
