The campaign that calls on everybody in and outside the Netherlands to support the construction of the Dutch Holocaust Memorial of Names was launched today. Fundraising takes the form of an adoption programme in which people can adopt one or more names on the memorial. In this way, everybody can help build the memorial for just 50 euros.
The Dutch Holocaust Memorial of Names will list the names, as well as the dates of birth and death, of all 102,000 Dutch victims of the Holocaust. The memorial is an initiative from the Dutch Auschwitz Committee. The proposed site of the memorial is in Wertheim Park in Amsterdam.
