After the war, the theater was demolished, leaving only the facade and crumbling walls. In the early 1960s, an obelisk serving as a monument and place for reflection was erected where the stage used to be to honor the memory of the thousands of people who were held there awaiting transportation by the Nazis. Inside the walls, there is a chapel with an eternal flame and a wall where the names of many Dutch Jewish families held here are inscribed. An exhibition space with photos, videos, and some personal items chronicles the persecution of the Dutch Jews.
Visits to the memorial are included in most Jewish history–themed walking tours of Amsterdam, which also typically visit the Jewish Historical Museum and the Portuguese Synagogue. The memorial is included on some combination sightseeing tours, such as a canal tour combined with a visit to the Jewish Quarter.
