Gerard Doustraat Synagogue for Cities Skylines.
The Gerard Dou Synagogue is the oldest functioning Ashkenazi synagogue in Amsterdam. Built in 1892, it features a red brick facade with white horizontal stripes and accents. Two tall, arched paned windows are placed above the entryway, with a round Star-of-David window above them.
Because of the Synagogue’s humble appearance and location between two row houses on the narrow Gerard Doustraat, it was not recognized by the Nazis as a Jewish house of worship and thus emerged from WWII unscathed.
