Whereas Amsterdams Historic Canal District as a World Heritage Site is mainly narrated as a seventeenth-century historical legacy, references to the 19th century imperialism are mostly absent, for instance in the World Heritage Site dedication and how the city is presented to tourists. The chapter advocates active engagement with the traces of the Dutch and European imperial past.
