Dutch Holocaust Memorial of Names

Seventy years after the Second World War, more than 102,000 victims of the Holocaust will finally have their own memorial. In Amsterdam, a memorial will be erected with the names of all the Dutch Holocaust victims. This will finally provide the Netherlands with a tangible memorial where the 102,000 Jewish victims and 220 Sinti and Roma victims can be commemorated individually and collectively.

 

Up to now, no memorial in the Netherlands has listed each individual Holocaust victim by name. For surviving relatives, a place to commemorate family members is invaluable. In addition, a memorial listing more than 102,000 names serves as a reminder to current and future generations of the dangers of racism and discrimination.
