Also see . . .  Monument voor dove Joodse Holocaustslachtoffers - Historiek (in Dutch). Rough translation from Dutch: How many deaf Jews who died exactly during World War II is not known because the death camps did not record whether the victims were deaf, but the Dovenshoah Foundation is researching this. It is well known that deaf Jews often went straight to the gas chambers....The DovenShoah Foundation hopes that the monument will draw more attention to the deaf victims of the Holocaust. The new monument stands at the Hortus Planten opposite the former deaf school, the JC Ammanschool, from which students and teachers were taken away during World War II. The monument is adopted by the Royal Kentalis School of Signs, a deaf school. (Submitted on July 7, 2017.)
