    Westerkerk is the high-spired church in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam, near the Homomonument and Anne Frank House. The church is a part of the Dutch Reformed Church, which is the U. S. equivalent of Presbyterian. If you happen to be in the area, go inside for a few minutes and look around. Rembrandt was buried in a pauper's grave somewhere on the site, and there is a plaque inside Westerkerk commemorating him.
