Joodse Invalide

Jewish home for the disabled that opened in Amsterdam in 1911.

The Joodse Invalide provided aid to a large group of elderly, physically disabled, blind, deaf and mute people, for whom no special accommodations had been available thus far. In 1937 the ultra-modern new premises opened on the Weesperplein. The Joodse Invalide accommodated over 400 residential patients. On 1 March 1943 the Nazis emptied the Joodse Invalide. All patients and staff members were deported.
