We’ve been to this miniature park, Madurodam. The 1:25 scale replicas of famous Dutch landmarks are wonderful and it’s quite impressive to think that the park is already 65 years old. It was restored in 2011 to celebrate its 60th birthday.

Madurodam was named after George Maduro, a jewish law student from Curaçao who fought the Nazi occupation forces. He died in 1945 at Dachau concentration camp.

Estivemos no parque Madurodam, onde há réplicas de vários monumentos holandeses na escala de 1:25. O parque foi renovado em 2011 para celebrar seu 60 anos.

O nome Madurodam vem em homenagem a George Maduro, um estudante de direito judeu de Curaçao que lutou contra os nazistas pela Holanda e morreu em 1945 no campo de concentração de Dachau.
