Amsterdam's most loaded streetcar is one that no longer runs. Streetcar 8 ran from the Rivierenbuurt to Central Station for many years, until the line was discontinued in 1942. 75 years ago that is. Yet "the 8" is perhaps Amsterdam's best-known streetcar line. That fame has everything to do with World War II. Many people think that streetcar 8 no longer runs through Amsterdam because this line was used to deport Jews during the war. In part that's true, but it's not the whole story.
