By world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind
On 16 December 2016, the Dutch Auschwitz Committee, together with Polish-Jewish architect Daniel Libeskind, presented the new design for the Dutch Holocaust Names Memorial. This national memorial will be located in the heart of the Jewish Quarter of Amsterdam, there where it all happened more than seventy years ago.
This will be the first memorial to feature the names of all 102,000 Jews and 220 Roma and Sinti who were killed during the war. It will be located on Weesperstraat, close to the Hermitage Museum and the Protestant Diaconate, and not far from major Jewish cultural institutions such as the Portuguese Synagogue and the Jewish Historical Museum.
