During the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II, a big fence was raised around the area and many bridges remained open permanently, so the inhabitants could only enter and leave the area at certain points. Sadly, a lot of Jewish residents were taken away to the concentration camps, and the neighorhood became abandoned and neglected after the war.
