The Ship of Peace was built at the Rotterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij in the Netherlands and up to this point, the largest ship ever constructed in the Netherlands. In the night of Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd of Septembre 1939, she left her homeport of Rotterdam for New york with 1287 passengers onboard. She made a few more cruises in the America's before being laid up in Hoboken.

During the war she would be used as a troopship, sailing for Cunard-White Star Line but with her original dutch crew and sailing under the dutch flag. During the war the sailed to all corners of the world, in total 530,452 nautical miles and carried 378,361 troops, the most troops besides from the Cunard's Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth, which is an impressive feat.

After an absence of 6 years, 7 months and 19 days, the Niew Amsterdam sailed up the Niewe Waterweg, heading towards the Wilhelmina Quay. Along the way, thousands of Citizens watched and waved, welcoming the ship back home. To citizens of Rotterdam, her arrival marked the end of the war and now the hard task of rebuilding the city of Rotterdam could begin.

This is where the story will end for now.

I do hope everyone is alright, 2020 had a great impact on all of our lives and even I could not avoid it in the end. even tho I did not have Covid, all the rules, social distancing and the lockdown did make a huge inpact on me.

Under these circumstances, I do hope I can wish you all a merry christmas and do take care of your friends and families.
